    Great news.

    Its a lot of money but big men are overpaid in this league.

    Hes been a great team mate, hes done a lot for the community and hes getting a little better every season.

    yes!... we better make a move or two before matching, though.

    Bid on Brand, sign OJ, trade pick for Marshon Brooks... one of those would be a good thing to do before matching

    A no brainer decision, if true.

    It wasn't about being the team everyone loved, it was about beating the teams everyone else loved.

    Now here's to hoping he keeps working hard and improving to show us he's worth that money.

    No kidding. Of course they are going to match. They have to. There isn't even a choice. I have not understood at all why people were so concerned about it.

    If the Pacers match, does that mean that they have to work with the same deal that Portland gave or can they even it out a bit more (cause apparently Portland front loaded the contract)?

    But yes, Pacerland rejoice!

    I literally flipped out when I heard the news. Roy is always improving and is one of the last well-rounded centers in my opinion. Great move by the Pacers.

    I hope it is front loaded.

    Because we're not doing anything better this season with whatever additional cap space were to be had by evening it out.

    They have to match whatever Hibbert signs. They are free to try and negotiate their own deal in the mean time though.

    What is up with the report the 1st 2 years of the deal are front loaded at 19 million each? If so the Pacers have no cap room now.

    Welcome back, big fella. Hope you're still wanting to work hard and improve, because 12 and 9 isn't going to cut it on that contract!

    too bad he is already there though, if his flight got delayed, and Batum was on time, we might be able to save a couple of bucks, but oh well. lol

    Obviously Roy is going to be overpaid. But the consequence of not re-signing him is significantly worse than what it will be for him to be somewhat overpaid.
