S&T Pau & they take on Nash.. Could see a Hibbert for Sanders deal going down.. 2 troubled young bigs with huge contracts, but Sanders atleast shows up when he's not doing something stupid off the court.

With the League loudly saying no thanks. :man10:

I'd want to see him really do some special stuff before I took on that contract.

Did I miss something between Bynum and Hibbert?

Apparently signing Bynum really hurt Hibbert's confidence in Indiana. He started performing badly when Drew showed up in town. Then had his best game in the playoffs this year after the Pacers cut Drew.

According to knowledgeable Pacers fans at another forum, Hibbert has pulled this disappearing act in the past.

But that was before Indy was contending for titles. Now with the spotlight on the team, Hibbert's mental issues are being picked apart by the national media.

If Indy is willing to take Nash off our hands, I'd be willing to listen to an offer from them. Otherwise, they can keep him.

It'd take more than that or me. Hibbert is a big risk at this point on a big contract. It'd take more than just an expiring contract for us to bail them out.

I'd strongly consider Pau (re-signed) and Nash for Hibbert.

I don't know. Hibbert sank the Pacers in the playoffs this year with his disappearing act. He could do the same thing to us. Remember Pau's vanishing act in 2011?

I want none of that.

Hibbert is probably just unhappy and would likely play better in a different environment.

Great asset if we can get him producing without being locked into his contract beyond 2015. I like it for a S&T Pau & Nash.. Pretty sure we can still afford Melo. If Hibbert can just protect the rim, he becomes more valuable next to Kobe & Melo than Pau. I don't care if he puts up 10 & 7. Just play elite defense & we're good.

We are not getting hibBert for gasol and 85 year old Nash.

Not a fan of his game anyway unless they are truly giving him away.

Don't want Hibbert, he's mentally fragile, Kobe would probably make him cry.

Hibbert complained about not being a part of the offense in Indiana... How would he react to Kobe? Or even worse Kobe AND Carmelo?

Marc Stein ‏@ESPNSteinLine 55s
Reports of deal between Hawks & Kent Bazemore are premature but I'm told Bazemore he has face-to-face meeting scheduled w/Hawks tomorrow


Looks like we are about to lose another one while we wait on Melo and LeBron.

At least that one we have seen coming for a bit now. Bazemore randomly got a ton of attention this summer. After the 6th team checked in on him I stopped believing we were going to bring him back. :man10:

If so, so be it. Bazemore has some upside but I like X Henry better.
