Indianapolis, IN (Sports Network) - The Indiana Pacers re-signed center Roy
Hibbert and guard George Hill on Friday.
Hibbert, a 2012 NBA All-Star, averaged 12.8 points, 8.8 rebounds and 2.0
blocks through 65 games last season.
Originally the 17th overall selection by the Toronto Raptors in the 2008 NBA
Draft, the 7-foot-2 Hibbert was traded to the Pacers on July 9, 2008 and has
spent all four of his seasons with Indiana. He has career marks of 11.1
points, 6.4 rebounds and 1.6 blocks.
"I'm happy to be back and I have unfinished business here," said Hibbert. "I
can't wait for the season to begin."
Hill, an Indianapolis native, tallied 9.3 points, 2.8 rebounds and 1.6 assists
in 50 games (nine starts) last year.
"I'm happy to be staying home with family, friends and my AAU program," said
Hill. "The main thing was to keep this team together and keep moving forward.
It was always a dream to be with the Pacers and now that its reality for a
longer period of time, it's great."
