The Portland Trail Blazers and one other unnamed team have offered All-Star center Roy Hibbert a maximum value contract, reports SI.com's Sam Amick. The Indiana Pacers, Hibbert's team of four years, offered less than the max, which would start at roughly $13 million per season.
Amick reports that Hibbert may sign Portland's offer sheet, forcing Indiana to decide whether to match. You would have to believe that Indiana would match, given Hibbert's importance to the club.
Hibbert and Eric Gordon (also seeking the max) are the only two restricted free agents likely to draw contracts at or near the max this offseason. JaVale McGee and Brook Lopez are also expected to come in with high-dollar contracts.
The Blazers are low on centers, but did pick up Meyers Leonard from Illinois in the 2012 NBA Draft on Thursday.
