The Sporting News’ Sean Devaney is reporting that Larry Bird is seeking offers for Roy Hibbert:

After a flurry of rumors dating back a little more than a month, there has not been much to speak of when it comes to the possibility of Indiana moving center Roy Hibbert in a trade. But, according to multiple front-office sources, the Pacers have quietly sought out possible new landing spots for their enigmatic big man.

“I would say they’ve been doing that, but quietly,” one front-office source said.

“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.”

Wow.

Let’s get right to what everyone is thinking: Rajon Rondo for Roy Hibbert?

It’s an intriguing scenario considering the Pacers reported desire to upgrade the point guard position.

    Man, Larry looks so disappointed in that picture. Meanwhile, Hibbert just learned that he has hands.

    Buy low, sell high.

  • I_HATE_SQUIDS

    who the hell is thinking that?

  • LA Flake

    Rondo for Roy? No thanks. Not even for Larry.

    With Sully & Kelly at the 4, we need athleticism at the 5.

  • KGino

    I threw up a little in my mouth thinking about that trade possibility

  • Andrew

    NO ONE IS THINKING RONDO FOR ROY…….IF WE WENT AFGTER ROY WE WOULD NEED A POINT GUARD LIKE RONDO TO SET HIM UP AND GET HIM IN THE RIGHT SPOTS ON THE FLOOR.
    GERALD WALLACE AND BASS PLUS A FIRST ROUND PICK FOR HIBBERT. THEN GET LOVE THIS SEASON OR NEXT SUMMER.

    • chuckmckenney

      Umm… they drafted a point guard. And Wallace and Bass won’t get it done. C’mon now…

  • RedsLoveChild

    At $15M per year….Hibbert is 7`2″, but plays like he`s 6`8″ or 6`9″.
    Very “sub-par” rebounder & scorer for his size.

  • Kevin

    Would Minny consider a Hibbert/Love swap?

    • Fitzy

      no

  • Brad P

    Roy Hibbert falls on his ass about 20 times a game

  • 409Pen

    How about…….Nooooo?!!!!!!!!!

  • adam

    Roy Hibbert for trade exception?

    • Fitzy

      we’d have to see how much Hibbert makes.

      • adam

        yeah, I would use that and throw them bass if you can do that. I don’t know if you can combine the trade exception with anything else though.

  • art

    Read my lips. N-O Chuck. I know…..it’s the off-season and let’s have something to talk about.

  • BillRussell

    I would only want Hilbbert if we had Rondo with him. Best thing about Rondos’ game is he make the people around him better.
