If the Indiana Pacers are ousted by the Washington Wizards in the second round of the NBA playoffs then the franchise will look to offload under performing center Roy Hibbert.
Chris Broussard of ESPN has reported that it is believed around the league that the Pacers will look to trade away their 7 ft 2 big man if they are to be defeated by the Washington Wizards and fail to reach the conference finals for a rematch with the Miami Heat.
The demise of Hibbert has been a rather incredible tale, named an All-Star earlier in the season he set an NBA record by being the first All-Star to rack up back-to-back zero point games in the playoffs.
Hibbert has become a shell of the dominating defensive center he appeared to be when the Pacers were cruising early in their campaign, he has since been a non-factor in the tribulations of the Indiana post season and it seems the front office may have given up on him.
Despite his lack of production, Hibbert would still be a much revered asset to another title chasing franchise and many suitors would make themselves readily available if the Pacers were to offload the the two-time All-Star.
It appears that Hibbert may be playing for his Pacer future as he approaches the rest of the daunting playoff series with the ruthless Washington Wizards squad.
