Roy Hibbert Unlikely To Receive Extension Before Deadline, Wants To Stay In Indiana
Despite having his best season to date it is unlikely that Roy Hibbert will get a contract extension by next week, according to Indystar.com.
"My personal gut feeling is that we'll do something in the summer, because the max guys are the ones that get extensions right away," Hibbert told Indystar.com. "I'm just going to follow my agent's lead."
"I have every intention of staying," Hibbert said. "Indiana is my home."
With no contract extension Hibbert will become a restricted free agent following this season, which allows the Pacers an opportunity to match any offer made to him. Through 12 games this season Hibbert has averaged 13.9 points, 9.8 rebounds, and 1.4 blocks per game.
