    Good! I hope we find a sucker to take him off our hands.

    With that being said I doubt we can get much for him based on his contract/production.

    Hopefully, if we trade him, we get fair worth for his whole year and don't get screwed because of how he ended it.

    It would be for the best if he had a change of scenery, IMO.

    I hope we find a deal.

    Like the guy, but tired of watching him pout everytime he plays horrendously (which is a lot).
    Stop quoting people I have on ignore!

    I hope this also means the Pacers have plans to tweek their blueprint a little and go more umptempo with better ball movement. I was just watching WNBA today and I swear both teams had better ball movement and even energy than the Pacers do.

    Oh absolutely. Then again, a fourth grade girls basketball team would have better ball movement than the Pacers.

    Most likely to be shopped, least likely to be moved, imo (not counting PG).

    I know making fun of the WNBA is an easy way to get cool points, but in general, WNBA teams have better ball movement than most NBA teams. There are very few players you can throw the ball to and go ISO, but even the stars buy into the team concept. It's probably due to a number of reasons, but they're not exactly playing for their next contract.

    Not making fun of WNBA. Making fun of Pacers offense more like it.

    I like Roy, I like him a lot. But as I've been saying since we were eliminated, for the first time in a good many years, I really don't care who the Pacers keep or trade. The last 3 years I've been SO proud of this team and all we've accomplished and the "Swagger" we've built.

    But it eroded, crashed and burned SO embarrassingly badly this season that it really soured me on our team, to be perfectly honest. I truly felt we were beating the Heat this year at a minimum, as I know lots of us did. So for us to just self-destruct and implode was especially difficult to swallow. I can handle losing. It hurts, but I can handle it. But the WAY we lost was the most demoralizing thing I've ever experienced as a Pacers fan.

    That being said, I am honestly totally fine with any "core" moves we make. I'll be a bit sad, and I'll wish it had all worked out better. But mostly I would just be relieved.

    If we can move Roy for something even remotely in the zip code of equal value, I wouldn't fault Bird one bit for pulling the trigger.

    I don't want to sell Hibbert for pennies on the dollar. Thankfully I don't think Bird would do that. That being said, if we could somehow get a "good" deal for him, then you have to strongly consider pulling the trigger.

    Didn't mean to direct it at you, just responding to your general statement about the ball movement.

    As for trading Roy... the grass isn't always greener. There better be a plan to bring a center back, because trading our defensive anchor would leave a pretty big hole in the middle. I think Roy means more to this team defensively than most people give him credit for, and I wouldn't be surprised to see our perimeter defense look worse as a result, too. Our entire defensive schemes, which funnel everything to the middle, would be useless.

    OKC or Phoenix. Phoenix has the cap space to take him back entirely. OKC, if they lose out on Gasol. Could take Hibbert. We'd have to take Perkins expiring contract though. By the way, to those of you on the board who're good with this cap stuff. Would having KP's expiring contract allow us to trade for a center in a S&T? For example....

    Pistons S&T Monroe to us. Could we take the cap hit now, with KP's expiring coming off next Summer and avoid the tax?

    I really, really, doubt this is us calling teams with a "hey, want Hibbert?" Probably more like his name coming up as part of packages for All Star type guys, like the Dragic rumor, and us saying "yeah we can talk about including him."

    So Heisenberg what would be your dream package for a guy like Hibbert? Would Dragic and a pick be what you'd want? Or Bledsoe and a pick?

    Or if it's OKC.... Reggie Jackson and Jeremy Lamb? Or Jackson and Perkins expiring? Or Lamb and Perkins expiring?

    If we trade Hibbert we would need a defensive minded big to come back in the deal. Whether they're a project or not we would need a big, shot blocking presence. Ian as a starter doesn't scare me outside of the fact that he will foul out 1 of every 3 games.

    Obviously the hope would be a trade thought brought back some help in the backcourt/wing area as well. But our entire defensive philosophy is around having a great rim protector.

    So, KP+???? to get a S&T of Monroe? I'm gonna guess you suggest including Scola....cuz he would have to be included to make salaries match. Who else? Solo and future first?

    The reality is that we have NO ASSETS to get a S&T of Monroe.

    ...the hell would we do that? We're the last team in the east that would be trading for hibbert.

    It wasn't about being the team everyone loved, it was about beating the teams everyone else loved.

    That philosophy might have to change. I'd hope they would bring back someone with more mobility and quickness.
