Always appreciate your insight Scott!! I'm curious and I'm surprised no one has mentioned this from what I've seen and heard. How was Roy Hibbert's contract structured when Portland signed him to an offer sheet in 2012. Also wasn't our own Chad Buchanan in the blazers FO at that time?

I also think this was a signal to the fans that "We will try to get the best talent in Indy, even if we have to pay", but I just don't like how clean the offer sheet was, as you mentioned thats Herb's preference. Which was why I was curious on Roy's deal back in the day and he is the only pacer that comes to mind that had been in that position.
