Roy Hibbert, who had a rough second half and even worse playoffs, is reportedly available for the right price.

Marc Stein of ESPN reports, "There is said to be some thought on both sides...that a fresh start would be beneficial for everyone after the big man's second-half woes." He added, "Hibbert's camp hasn't outright asked for a trade...but word is that it wouldn't exactly oppose." Hibbert sill has two years and $30 million left on his contract, with the second year being a player option. This story should only get more complicated during the summer.

Roy Hibbert had his second double-double of the playoffs with 10 points, 13 rebounds and a block in Wednesday's Game 5 win.

He hit just 4-of-11 shots and didn't even seem fully tuned into the game late, but still played well enough to help the Pacers win, after not even scoring in Game 4. David West added 19 points, nine rebounds, two steals and a block, and the Pacers will need more of the same from the duo for Friday's Game 6 at Miami.

Roy Hibbert blamed his scoreless Game 4 performance on coach Frank Vogel's gameplan.

David West had a tempting matchup with Rashard Lewis and he quickly became a focal point of the Pacers' attack in the first quarter. "The game plan really wasn't to utilize me as much," Hibbert said. "Would I like a little bit more touches early on? Yeah. But that's how the cookie crumbles sometimes ... I can't control plays called for me." Vogel blamed Hibbert's ineffectiveness on foul trouble, and it will be interesting to see if he's more involved in the offense when Indiana seeks to avoid elimination on Wednesday.

Hibbert was great in Game 2, with 12 points, 13 rebounds, a block and eight offensive rebounds, but never got it going on the glass tonight. Chris Bosh was terrible for the Heat tonight, which helped the Pacers stick around after they blew a 15-point lead, but Hibbert's ineffectiveness in the paint is a big problem for the Pacers right now.

He also hauled in eight offensive rebounds, while this was his first double-digit rebounding performance of the playoffs. Hibbert is a big reason the Pacers were in this game until the end and they'll need him to keep playing well with the series heading to Miami on Saturday.

Roy Hibbert scored 19 points with nine boards, three assists and one block in 39 minutes vs. the Heat on Sunday.

The Heat didn't respect his offensive game much and he was able to get terrific position deep in the paint. All but one of Hibbert's five makes came at the rim, but he did shoot just 1-of-7 from beyond two feet today. He played well on defense and he's been able to string together some positive outings, averaging 13.0 points, 6.4 boards and 2.0 blocks over his last five. The All-Star was an absolutel monster vs. Miami in the playoffs last year with 22.1 points per game, so he'll continue to be a huge factor in this series.

The Pacers grabbed a franchise-low 23 rebounds in Tuesday's Game 5 defeat, leading coach Frank Vogel to question his team's effort.

"We didn't hit them, we didn't hold them off the glass," Vogel said. "We didn't purse like we normally pursue and it was costly." David West led his team with six rebounds, but starters Lance Stephenson, Paul George and Roy Hibbert combined for only three rebounds in 92 minutes of action. "We didn't show up to play," West said. "We relied on one guy to rebound or two guys to rebound and that's not who we are." The Pacers will need to quickly move on from this franchise-worst performance on the glass with Game 6 looming in Washington on Thursday.

Ian Mahinmi played only five minutes off the bench and Luis Scola went scoreless in eight minutes, but starting PF David West added 14 points, three rebounds, eight assists in 44 minutes.

Roy Hibbert said on Friday that he was thankful for the advice from his former coach John Thompson III.

"He just told me how to work on positioning and bending my knees a little bit more," Hibbert said. "Things that a good coach sees the small details in. I'm very appreciative of him taking the time." The Pacers gave him the ball much more and he lucked into some more rebounds on his way to 28 points and nine boards on Wednesday. Interestingly, Hibbert has grabbed just 46.7 percent of his rebound chances in the playoffs, which doesn't even rank in the top 160 for all players in the postseason. Meanwhile, Marcin Gortat leads the postseason with contested rebounds per game. A lot of eyes will be on Hibbert tonight.
