Pacers aim to lock up Roy Hibbert, George Hill as free agency looms
June 30, 2012Eastern Indiana Sports
Indiana Pacers general manager Kevin Pritchard kept the details vague but the team plans to be aggressive with free-agent center Roy Hibbert.
Come Sunday morning at 12:01 a.m., the start of the NBA free agency period, the Pacers will be on Hibbert's doorstep making their pitch to re-sign the free agent center.
"We'll absolutely be there," Pritchard said.
The Pacers will also be meeting with free agent guard George Hill once he returns from vacation.
The team's free agency strategy is simple. Re-sign Hibbert and Hill so they can keep their starting unit together, then add pieces to their bench.
