http://www.indystar.com/article/2009.../1062/SPORTS04Rookie center Roy Hibbert has struggled at times this season, but wants to develop into a go-to player for the Pacers.
"We have great shooters on this team from Danny (Granger) and (Troy) Murphy all the way down," Hibbert told the Indianapolis Star. "They're able to hit shots, but if they're not hitting from the outside, I want to be that presence that they can throw the ball down to."
Indiana, even when they had a hobbled Jermaine O'Neal, has lacked a viable interior threat recently.
"I think that's the next step for us, honestly," Granger said. "You have to have a good low-post presence. You can have good wings and good point guard play, but if you don't have a low-post presence, it's hard to be a contender in the league. Roy is going to help us a lot."
