Pacers To Bring Back Hibbert And Hill

Last updated on Wednesday, July 11, 2012

(UNDATED) - The NBA’s moratorium is over and teams can begin signing free agents today.

The Indiana Pacers will bring back their two restricted free agents as center Roy Hibbert and guard George Hill can sign their new deals.

Hibbert will receive a four-year deal worth 58-million dollars after receiving a maximum offer from the Portland Trail Blazers last week. Hill agreed to a five-year contract to return to his hometown team last week. Details of the contract have not been released.

The Pacers' summer pro league team improved to 2-and-0 with a 78-74 win over the Oklahoma City Thunder in Orlando.

Lance Stephenson led the Pacers with a game-high 28 points on 10-for-14 shooting from the field. Rookie Miles Plumlee was the only other Pacer to reach double figures, finishing with 14 points.

Lazar Hayward led the Thunder with 15 points with Reggie Jackson adding 13 as Oklahoma City falls to 0-and-2.

The Pacers take on the Boston Celtics late this morning in game three of their five-game summer league schedule.
