Area 55 is over & Hibbert isn't co-hosting the celebrity softball game as usual. What to make of it? Not what u think bit.ly/1DgBnPA

Greg Rappaport

Roy Hibbert's 2014-15 season transitions into an offseason filled with questions, says @Mark Montieth nba.com/pacers/player-…

Candace Buckner

Roy Hibbert opting in....... To visit alma mater today. Sorry for the tease, couldn't help it. twitter.com/georgetownprep…

Scott Agness

Updated post: Not surprising Hibbert isn’t co-hosting annual softball event. He was ready to pass the torch. bit.ly/1DgBnPA

Scott Agness

Roy Hibbert noticeably absent on @indywish’s Celebrity Softball game flyer; George Hill, Paul George on board bit.ly/1DgBnPA

Andrew Perna

Before we continue to overreact, there is still a chance Roy Hibbert attends the softball game, right? PG and GH are bigger draws.

Scott Agness

Here's the flyer, via @RobertMathis98. It's been Mathis vs Hibbert. But not anymore. http://t.co/J30MjfRvk5

Scott Agness

Annual celebrity softball game is set for June 4th at Victory Field ft. Robert Mathis, Paul George, GHill. Noticeably absent: Roy Hibbert.

Steve Kyler

I can't think of a single team that takes on $16 million for Hibbert, offers real value to watch him walk in July. twitter.com/rpmfan43/statu…

Chris Herring

Hibbert would have to opt out of a $15.5M player option. So I don't think so. MT @jrd913: Roy Hibbert on a hometown discount, come on down.

Emiliano Carchia

Hibbert will have a diminished role with Pacers if he opts in sportando.com/en/usa/nba/158…

Michael Scotto

Keep an eye on Georgetown recruit @JGovan15 who will follow in the footsteps of Ewing, Mutombo, Mourning and Hibbert. sheridanhoops.com/2015/04/18/sco…

Jared Weiss

Kelly Olynyk is the new Roy Hibbert. #FakeTommyQuotes

Tom Halzack

Bird, Vogel don't see a role for Roy Hibbert next year. probasketballtalk.nbcsports.com/2015/04/17/sou…

Tom Halzack

Roy Hibbert is a completely different case but....does Roy just need the right situation like.... Evan Turner did? Doesn't fit Pacer's plans

Kurt Helin

Sounds like Pacers president Larry Bird, head coach Frank Vogel don’t want Roy Hibbert back next year dlvr.it/9RVlDY

Vincent Goodwill

Roy Hibbert: It was all good just a week ago. Very rarely do you hear such transparency from teams saying “please leave"

Brett Pollakoff

Writing up the Vogel/Bird comments on Hibbert, and worth reminding that @Candace Buckner is elite at what she does. indystar.com/story/sports/n…

Conrad Brunner

Less Hibbert, more flexibility for #Pacers next year, say Bird and Vogel. bit.ly/1JbPkD1

Royce Young

Pacers to switch to faster style, Roy Hibbert might be benched next year cbsprt.co/1OOOJec http://t.co/A6BsWxkhzQ

The latest on Roy Hibbert and free agency. bit.ly/1OnhEEf

Andrew Perna

He shouldn’t, but Roy Hibbert beats to his own drum. I wouldn’t be shocked if he did opt out of his deal.

Chris Herring

Ive already had a couple Knick fans tweet me that theyd like Hibbert at right price. But he'd have to back out of a $15M payday first, tho.

Chris Herring

Exactly. RT @Russ Bengston: If I'm Roy Hibbert I'm DEFINITELY taking that last $15.5 million from the Pacers now. Go ahead, don't play me.

Fabian Garcia

Además, Bird fue bastante duro con Hibbert que podría ser agente libre: "No tuvo una buena temporada y no podemos garantizarle nada".

Candace Buckner

Full Vogel quote when asked if Roy Hibbert would be benched if #Pacers go toward w/ fundamental offensive change...

Tony Jones

Fits for Roy Hibbert if he opts out (among playoff teams): Millwaukee, Brooklyn (if Lopez leaves), New Orleans (better than Asik)

Tony Jones

Roy Hibbert needs to opt out, if this is the way the Pacers truly feel about him

Emiliano Carchia

Bird hopes to re-sign Scola, doesn't know whether West and Hibbert will opt in sportando.com/en/usa/nba/158…

Tim Bontemps

If Hibbert does hit the market, you'd have to wonder if the Knicks would take a look at him. Would help their defense, at the very least.

Candace Buckner

"I'd expect him to opt in, he's got a good deal… it'll be speculative for me to make a guess like that." Vogel on Roy Hibbert.

Tim Bontemps

While Larry Bird did say he wants Hibbert back, made it clear Pacers want to be smaller, quicker. Hibbert can opt out and become a FA.

Tim Bontemps

From following @Candace Buckner tweeting today, it sounds like Roy Hibbert could very well be on the market this summer.

Chris Herring

Pacers are pretty much saying theyll be fine with or without Hibbert going forward. Yikes.

Brian Windhorst

Hibbert has a $15.5 million player option for next season. Hard to see him passing that up but never underestimate agent David Falk.

Candace Buckner

Vogel's assessment on Roy Hibbert's season: "He's got to work on his craft, like all of us do. And he'll do that."

Candace Buckner

Does new scheme mean Roy Hibbert will be benched, Vogel said: "Possibly." "Roy's role will be diminished." There it is again.

Brian Windhorst

Larry Bird said he wants to play smaller & faster next year & if Roy Hibbert stays role may change. Sounds like a prod to encourage opt out.

Scott Agness

Bird with a classic line on Hibbert’s struggles: “Well, I don’t think Lance is stealing his rebounds."

Candace Buckner

Bird emphasizes #Pacers want Hibbert here BUT… team will play smaller. Again, not looking good for the 7-2 rim protector.

Candace Buckner

If #Pacers make this change, it doesn't look good for slow and lumbering Roy Hibbert and his future in Indy.

Scott Agness

Bird on Hibbert’s year: “I didn’t think he played that well, to be honest."

Candace Buckner

Bird on Hibbert: "Whatever he does, he does. We'll assume he's going to come back." If he does, #Pacers still want to play different style

Scott Agness

When asked about Roy Hibbert and David West’s player options, Bird said “I have no clue.” Bird assuming both will be back.

Candace Buckner

Bird said he had "no clue" on whether Roy Hibbert and David West will opt in. Didn't ask in exit meetings but David spoke about "next year"

Candace Buckner

Most players I talked to mentioned rash of injuries that ultimately did in the yr. Neither David West nor Hibbert spoke after the game.

Candace Buckner

#Pacers not emptying bench yet, but Rudež coming in for Hibbert

Conrad Brunner

Gasol/Randolph=42 pts, 19 rbs Hibbert/West=9 pts, 7 rbs #optout
