Before we continue to overreact, there is still a chance Roy Hibbert attends the softball game, right? PG and GH are bigger draws.
Annual celebrity softball game is set for June 4th at Victory Field ft. Robert Mathis, Paul George, GHill. Noticeably absent: Roy Hibbert.
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
Roy Hibbert: It was all good just a week ago. Very rarely do you hear such transparency from teams saying “please leave"
He shouldn’t, but Roy Hibbert beats to his own drum. I wouldn’t be shocked if he did opt out of his deal.
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.
Además, Bird fue bastante duro con Hibbert que podría ser agente libre: "No tuvo una buena temporada y no podemos garantizarle nada".
Fits for Roy Hibbert if he opts out (among playoff teams): Millwaukee, Brooklyn (if Lopez leaves), New Orleans (better than Asik)
Roy Hibbert needs to opt out, if this is the way the Pacers truly feel about him
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.
"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.
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.
Pacers are pretty much saying theyll be fine with or without Hibbert going forward. Yikes.
Hibbert has a $15.5 million player option for next season. Hard to see him passing that up but never underestimate agent David Falk.
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."
Does new scheme mean Roy Hibbert will be benched, Vogel said: "Possibly." "Roy's role will be diminished." There it is again.
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.
Bird with a classic line on Hibbert’s struggles: “Well, I don’t think Lance is stealing his rebounds."
Bird on Hibbert’s year: “I didn’t think he played that well, to be honest."
When asked about Roy Hibbert and David West’s player options, Bird said “I have no clue.” Bird assuming both will be back.
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"
Most players I talked to mentioned rash of injuries that ultimately did in the yr. Neither David West nor Hibbert spoke after the game.
