Pacers Shopping Roy Hibbert

The Pacers are shopping big man Roy Hibbert, sources tell Sean Deveney of the Sporting News. “I would say they’ve been doing that, but quietly,” one front-office source said.

Of course, with two years and $30MM left on Hibbert’s contract, he’s not a great match for every team out there.  The center was erratic in March and April as well as the postseason too, so it’s unclear what kind of return Indiana could expect from a Hibbert deal.  Meanwhile, there’s still uncertainty around Lance Stephenson after the club saw their five-year, $44MM offer rejected.  Dumping Hibbert’s contract could help facilitate a return for their unrestricted free agent.

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.

One source added that star small forward Paul George is untouchable in any deal with the Pacers while power forward David West is all but off the table.  Also, in a Hibbert deal, the source says that they would prefer to send him to the Western Conference.  The Blazers have been linked to Hibbert in the past but a source labeled a Portland deal as “unlikely.”

Suns got PG’s and are in the West. Could have done it at Draft and could have got a PG in the Draft.

I would like the nuggets to trade for him with a package around McGee.
