Indiana Pacers Trade Rumors: Roy Hibbert Traded To Portland Trail Blazers, Denver Nuggets, Utah Jazz With Luis Scola For First Round Pick?

indiana-pacers-center-roy-hibbert.jpg?w=

The Indiana Pacers are shopping Roy Hibbert in a trade and some options for Indy are the Portland Trail Blazers, Denver Nuggets, Utah Jazz and Milwaukee Bucks and Luis Scola could be included in the deal and the team does decide to trade Hibbert, they could be looking at a first round pick in return.

 

The Pacers are coming into the offseason after another defeat to the Miami Heat in the finals and now according to reports, the team is shopping big man Roy Hibbert after his subpar playoffs performance. According to ESPN.com, Pro Basketball Talk and the Sporting News, the Pacers are "quietly" shopping Hibbert around the league to gauge interest and some teams interested include the Nuggets and the Blazers, who gave Hibbert and offer a sheet a couple years ago when he was a restricted free agent.

 

ESPN.com reports that the Bucks could be an option for OJ Mayo along with a draft pick, while the Nuggets could be interested in Hibbert after looking into the Kevin Love trade talks earlier in the offseason. The Bucks also have Larry Sanders and they could be looking at making some big moves with Jason Kidd coming in and Jabari Parker getting drafted at the number two pick. The Nuggets have players to move and first round picks, including JaVale McGee and Randy Foye and they could be an option for the Pacers.

 

Indiana was disappointed with the way Hibbert played in the playoffs and now just a couple years after signing him to an extension, he could be gone. Lance Stephenson is likely on his way out after rejecting a five year deal from the team and that means moving Hibbert will open up some nice cap space. According to Marc Stein, the team is interested in trading for Goran Dragic and a trade to the Suns for Hibbert could net the team the point guard. The Suns reportedly are not looking to trade Dragic unless it's a mega-deal, so that likely means it will not happen this summer.

Hibbert is coming in with a $14.8 million contract and the team may feel moving him is the best move after he had multiple zero-zero lines in the NBA playoffs. A change of scenery could be good for Hibbert, as the fans started to turn on him in the end. The Blazers likely would not pull off this deal if LaMarcus Aldridge commits to a max contract, but right now that is still up in the air.

Hibbert is a much better player than those games in the POs showed.  It seems like he was pouting over the Bynum thing, but even if he was, that's a pretty immature response.

 

Not sure what Indiana is doing right now.  With Miami out of their way and Cleveland probably a year or so from becoming a threat, why break up the band now?

Someone on this board once asked "Would you trade Nash for Hibbert?" (assuming they'd even do it).

 

I think I would....

 

He's overpaid based on how he started to play but I think that was more mental than anything. His contract is only 2 years now.

That was me haha

I would do it in a heartbeat with how this market has been and the lack of talented big men in this league. I think he was just in a slump, id easily pay Hibbert due to the fact that he's been pretty healthy his entire career which is always great on a big mans résumé.

Stretch Nash, give Indy a trade exemption for Hibbert. We'd have a defensive anchor finally.

Were talking about trading or stretching Nash and you want to buy your assets low. This deal writes itself.

 According to Sporting News, the Pacers have been quietly shopping Hibbert this offseason, waiting to commit to something once they knew the future of Stephenson. Several teams appeared interested as the Los Angeles Lakers, Atlanta Hawks and Phoenix Suns were all looking to the big man for help. However, with Stephenson out of the picture, the Pacers might not be able to afford letting Hibbert go.

Larry Bird offering Hibbert/Hill to the Celtics for Rondo? 

 

So what does this mean for the remaining players on Indiana's roster? According to Sporting News, the Pacers have been quietly shopping Hibbert this offseason, waiting to commit to something once they knew the future of Stephenson. Several teams appeared interested as the Los Angeles Lakers, Atlanta Hawks and Phoenix Suns were all looking to the big man for help. However, with Stephenson out of the picture, the Pacers might not be able to afford letting Hibbert go.

 

There has been speculation that the Pacers are interested in getting involved in a trade for Rajon Rondo. ESPNBoston.com reported the Pacers could offer up a trade package that included Hibbert and George Hill in exchange for the point guard. Right now, Boston is denying Rondo is available for dealing, but they also said the same thing about Paul Pierce and Kevin Garnett before sending them to the Brooklyn Nets. Anyone is available for the right price.
 

Giving up Hibbert and Hill at this point is not an option for Indiana unless they plan on overhauling the whole roster. The team lost a big scoring presence meaning Hibbert's defense and Hill are needed for the long run.

Indiana was really stupid to lose stephenson he was the nba leader in triple doubles he maybe was a locker room killer but he made that team alot better

As far as hibbert the guy was a top 5 center until his meltdown indiana needs to get a good guard in return

The rondo trade would make sense for indiana because he gives them a two way star that they just loss and indiana really needs a pg

I said it before the draft i would take hibbert on the lakers in a second for a nash trade but no way indiana does this

Denver needs a true center for the triangle hibbert fits in that role better then anyone available other then love and denver has the assets to give indiana

They could get a center and a wing or sg from denver

But pacers must be in blow up mode the problems in that locker room must have been deep

But indiana coming in trying to replace lance with stuckey is a bad look

Minny should offer Nicola Peckovic for Hibbert straight up. Hibbert would be a fantastic fint in Minny who really needs a shot-blocker and Peckovic would be a nice offensive punch for the Pacers.

Not sure how anyone who plays for larry legend can give anything less than everything they have.

Dude played like every possession mattered. Players today not so much.

Seems like hibbert didnt react well to lance and PG leapfrogging him in importance...just guessing here


Praying for 1. Kobe's Health, 2. High Draft Pick (Randle!) 3. Miracle Trade (Not yet), 4. Quality Free Agent (Boozer, kind of), 5. Brilliant Coaching Hire (Byron!...but the jury is out)

I think Mr. Bynum was a threat as well but I heard that Roy has these mental breakdowns at least once a year since hes been a league. Its been expected
