Roy Hibbert's Days With the Indiana Pacers Numbered?

This season's Indiana Pacers were nothing like last season's Pacers with Lance Stephenson gone and Paul George out for most of the season with an injury. In a way you could say that it became Roy Hibbert's team, but with the Pacers sitting at home with the playoffs preparing to start it is safe to say that didn't go so well.
