PLAYERS: Roy Hibbert
TEAMS: Indiana Pacers

Could Roy Hibbert be dealt to another team? Indiana Pacers big man Roy Hibbert at one point seemed like he was on the precipice of stardom. During the 2012-2013 NBA season, the University of Georgetown product really started to grow into his own – especially during the playoffs. Then came the second half of last season when the Pacers fell apart. Hibbert was a shell of his former self and had disappeared mostly throughout the playoffs averaging 9.3 points and 5.5 rebounds. Now, a report from the Sporting News is stating that the Pacers are “quietly” shopping Hibbert. After a flurry of rumors dating back a little more than a month, there has not been much to speak of when it comes to the possibility of Indiana moving center Roy Hibbert in a trade. But, according to multiple front-office sources, the Pacers have quietly sought out possible new landing spots for their enigmatic big man. “I would say they’ve been doing that, but quietly,” one front-office source said. “They’re open to making major changes, if they’re there,” one general manager told Sporting News. “I think they’d be disappointed to see that same core group back intact, so it is a matter of, how drastic can the changes they make be? Moving Hibbert for multiple pieces would be a pretty drastic change, but they’re asking.” If the Pacers were to trade Hibbert, that would indicate they are in for a rebuilding process. The team already has budding star Paul George to build around, but they’re questions concerning polarizing guard Lance Stephenson, Evan Turner and the point guard position. Things could get real interesting the next few weeks in Indiana. The post Pacers making Roy Hibbert available appeared first on Pass The Pill - Kings of Hoops.
