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


Yes.  Particularly with Larry Bird saying Bynum was better than  Hibbert when healthy.  And in the two games Bynum played before his knee swelled it's not out of the question that if Bynum had somehow remained healthy he'd likely have been starting during Hibberts meltdowns.

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

^ This. I rather trade for Hibbert than that rumored Bledsoe trade, Defensive big to go along with Randle, and his contract ends the same year Lakers are trying to go big on.

Kareem Abdul-Jabbar tweeted tonight he's in Indy to start offseason sessions with Roy Hibbert.

 

Dinner with @kaj33 and Larry was great. Loved hearing their stories. Learned so much and asked a lot of questions.

Pacers should ask for Bledsoe instead.

Report: Pacers, shopping Roy Hibbert, called Pistons to talk Greg Monroe http://dlvr.it/6ZTWDg 

Doubt they want Hibbert specially since they already got Drummond.

I would totally take a chance of Hibbert. If it works out we have a solid big man for years. If not then his contract would be up in 2 years. Not a major loss really.  

 

A Steve Nash and Sacre trade for Hibbert would actually work too. http://espn.go.com/n...tradeId=nq7kr3w

 

But thats if the pacers just want spending room next season. Honestly would not be a horrible idea. Pacers without PG have no chance and they need to rebuild. I wouldn't doubt you hear some rumors for this in the coming weeks. Pacers may get desperate.

Agreed, I wouldn't mind seeing a Randle/Hibbert on the frontcourt.

And really a nash and sacre trade isn't that bad for a highly over payed player who has been struggling. Were giving them spending money on a franchise that needs to rebuild and were getting a expensive project player.

Refresh my memory...wasnt Hibbert an ALLSTAR last year?

I know he drastically tailed off in the playoffs.


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

Hibbert would really be the one guy who could change this season's outlook for the Lakers by providing DPOY caliber defense to a very deadly offensive squad, but i cant see how we are supposed to get him to LA though.

 

Theoretically, we could offer Clarkson, Hill and the 1st rounder from Houston, but i think the Pacers can do better and i Hill would have to agree.

 

That said, i think the Pacers are in a bit of a tough spot right now. Both Hibbert and West could be FAs next summer and with Lance in Charlotte and Paul George's immediate future being somewhat up in the air, i think they could go in many directions and i think they may (or should) be considering a complete fire-sale.

Hill has a no trade clause. He'd have to want to go to Indiana.

I know, that's why i wrote "Hill would have to agree"...

 

One reason why he would agree could be that it would increase the chance of getting the 9M next season, which i dont think he'll get in LA.

 

 

How about this: Nash, Hill, Clarkson and Houston's pick for Hibbert, Hill and whatever bad deals they may have?

Worth noting that Roy Hibbert has a 15% trade kicker - given a few rumors bouncing around the net these days

Lakers wouldn't care. They really don't have that high of a payroll anyway. The only problem is his money would hurt next year's FA.

If Hibbert thought the media was tough on him in Indiana for his yearly meltdowns, watch him explode in L.A. Hibbert was an all star last year but I would never confuse him as being an all star caliber player... disgraceful selection and one of the worst historically IMO

Hibbert's selection was due to the Pacers being the best team in the league during the beginning of the season - with Hibbert being the defensive back-bone and second most important player behind Paul George. He was the runaway candidate for DPOY at that point as well and people were discussing whether he was the best big in the game. He deserved an all-star selection.

 

Unfortunately, their offense somehow imploded from midway through the season and the rest of the way and Hibbert somehow were in a funk the rest of the season. Hibbert in LA would be different as he would only be counted on to be a defensive anchor, which perhaps would be the best role for him.
