This guy is 7 feet of baby-soft molasses. A legit max center would have feasted on Miami's front line.

No thanks.

Not yet. We have to wait until July 11th before the 3 days start.

Since the Blazers have no shot at any major free agent, they must deny other teams as much cap space as possible.

We did this to Utah w/ Wes Mathews.

god i hope portland think hibbert is worth it because if they dont, and they did this just to mess with indy and they are stuck paying hibbert a ton in 4 years, they will regret it.

Offers like this put teams in such a bad spot. The NBA market is such trash. If INDY doesn't match they don't get better. Their trying to build something. How can you not match? Sure you'd save money but you'd be walking away from the goal of winning games. Not matching Hibbert isn't really going to do much longterm. Give you extra cash for FA you probably won't sign.

Your either forced with overpaying somebody to get better or letting them walk and regressing or not improving.

Not really. Jazz let Boozer go to Chicago and got a cheaper and better option in Jefferson with the TPE from the sign and trade. Indiana has options.

The sad part is that they can certainly throw a good post pass. Their offense just makes absolutely no sense. It has no flow or consistency. They have weapons, they don't seem to have any idea of how to use them right.

this is a proof that current NBA lacks center depth. i wouldn't call it a centerless era anymore, but still guys like hibbert is an interchangeable piece, not a cornerstone of the franchise.

Pacers have to match. They can't afford to loose Hibbert. They have a good thing going.

To Hibbert's defense in that Miami series, I do recall him beasting in the games they won. They stopped getting him the ball, and started jacking up shots.

Would assume Indiana will match, but he sure would be nice alongside LMA. It must be good to be 7 feet tall!

Mike Wells: The Pacers are already looking at other options at center. They've reached to out Omer Asik, who was with Chicago last season Twitter

I don't think that is too much for Hibbert. I really hope Indy doesn't match. $15M a year for arguably the 3rd best center in the league is fair value. Also, Portland won't have a chance to sign a better FA in the next couple of years, so this is really our only means of improving the team without getting an aging, declining veteran.

Why not see who gave the Heat the most trouble in the playoffs.

Pacers, with two legit low post players.

Celtics, with the best low post player they faced (Garnett).

You need bigs to beat the Heat.
