    This.

    Herb really can't say a thing about another owner bidding on Roy, because that would be collusion. In fact, David Falk could make a case for collusion if nobody were to bid on roy. It's a tough spot to be in.

    IMO, nobody is going to place a bid on Roy, unless the negotiation drags out so long that a team with max cap space (like Dallas) decides to roll the dice and try to choke the Pacers with a max contract offer.

    Best scenario would be to pay him a little more than his market value immediately, or pay him a lot more later when another team smells blood.

    Do you guys think we will try to sign Mayo? And somehow we won't be able to?

    I guess the owner's rule of not bidding on RFA won't keep some teams from bidding on Hibbert. So much for that plan.

    Eh. Collusion happens when two or more parties have an explicit conversation with the intention of fixing prices. Refusing to bid on opponent's RFAs is a moral/ethical stance... and if other teams buy into that model without an explicit conversation between those teams, then it's fair game.

    That's what I'm saying. Herb can stand on his own moral ground, but if another team bids on Roy, he can't say one word about it, because that would be taken as collusion.

    Like what has already been said that falk is just doing his job, but I really doubt Hibbert ever leaves the Pacers. I'm not that worried about it he'll get paid and remain a pacer the only thing I have a problem with putting out offers now is that we get into a bidding war with only ourselves.

    His cap hold will be less than his eventual salary, so who cares.

    Perhaps if this little tidbit gets recycled through here enough times, the information it contains will change.

    Why couldn't he? If he says that his stance is that he's not going to try and sign other teams' RFA, while a team or teams bid on Roy while he's a RFA, I don't think you can make a case of collusion if Simon talks.

    Why? Because the actions of the other teams directly contradict what Simon is saying they should do, as the "right" thing.

    If no team puts in an offer for Roy, I would think there would be a stronger case for collusion.

    This isn't worth worrying over.

    It's pretty much 99.9% certain that Roy will be back. He's a RFA, we won't let him just leave, he's happy here, we have the capability to pay him.

    Whatever it is we should match it...Roy is quickly becoming the best player on the roster.

    As much as I like Roy, I am exercising a little more caution with him. Am I the only one who remembers his torrid start to the year last season? He was the MIP favorite until Kevin Love started going bananas, and then he continued to steadily fade down the stretch. Before we go lauding him with accolades, let's remember that he's started out fast before. I'd like to see him sustain this production all season before talking extension or claiming him to be the best player on the team.

    I hate agents so much.
    as do i. i hate any profession that basically adds no value to society. agents are money movers. it's sickening how rich these people are while at the same time, really providing nothing of value to society. those are the real parasites, not the single mother of 4 on welfare.
