I was told by an NBA official that the Bucks also had discussions with Indiana and were interested in acquiring veteran Pacers center Roy Hibbert, who hasn’t performed up to his lofty contract. Hibbert’s contract calls for him to earn $14.89 million next season. He then has a player-option the following season for $15.51M. Racine Journal-Times

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.

He added that Indiana’s preference would be to send Hibbert to the Western Conference. Portland originally gave Hibbert his max offer, and the Blazers have been intermittently linked to Hibbert. But the Blazers are focused on keeping star power forward LaMarcus Aldridge with a contract extension and making smaller tweaks to their bench. A source labeled a Portland deal, “unlikely.” Sporting News

"Roy's never asked us to go bring someone in," Bird, the Pacers' president of basketball operations, said. "I always say big guys are different. I would encourage Roy to try to get with one of the greats. Kareem Abdul-Jabbar is one of the best teachers. Bill Walton is great. They know how to play the position as well as anyone ever has. I would encourage that." ESPN.com

Bird said he's not sure what's to blame for Hibbert's inconsistent play. He said he talked to Hibbert briefly a number of times during the season and the center would ask him, "What do you see?" "When Roy loses his confidence, he struggles at times," Bird said. "I hope he can come back strong. I hope he can do the things necessary to get better." Bird said he hasn't talked to Hibbert about his summer plans yet but believes Hibbert is willing to do what it takes to improve for next season. "I think Roy is open to about anything, anything that he thinks would make himself a better basketball player," he said. ESPN.com
