    Default Roy Hibbert anyone?

    He's rumored to be available and although he had a horrible second half of the season+ Playoffs he was still second team all nba defensive team. It wouldn't take much to get him either. The main problem would be JV and Roy's minutes but maybe you could try JV at the 4. I probably wouldn't take roy but It's kinda slow right now so i thought i would start this thread. Thoughts?

    I think many individuals are disappointed by Roy Hibbert's poor rebounding skills... and I believe Raptors desperately need a rebounder.
    Furthermore, adding Roy Hibbert to Raptors' roster may affect Jonas Valancinuas in negative manners.
    Although, Roy Hibbert was praised for his offensive skills last season, I sincerely believe Jonas Valancinuas can develop to become a better offensive big man, if he has already not done so.
    In conclusion... let's stay away from Roy Hibbert please

    Roy and about 30 million of his friends is available. It would be a Rudy Gay Deja Vu.

    Don't even compare those two, Hibbert would just bring a bad voodoo bro the locker room, + Rudy tried to become his better self in the summer, which he is in Sactown right now.

    I don't see how Roy helps us in any way.
    On offense, we have a wing attack based system with Demar, Ross, Lowry, Vasquez and 2Pat on the perimeter. Roy doesn't provide any spacing.
    Moreover, he doesn't have an offensive repertoire to begin with. We are talking about a guy who has shooting percentage as a big man in the 40 percentile

    On defense, he's great, but is the difference between JV next and Roy on defense that huge?
    Does it warrant max contract money? Does it warrant destroying our cap space for the 2015 FA crop?

    Plus Roy brings too much baggage with him. We are already trying to develop a young center and mold him into good habits, so Roy would really destroy the locker room.

    A 22 year old JV who already puts up better offensive numbers than Roy while showing improvement on defense and owed $7.5M over next 2 years with option to keep him for another 4-5.

    ORRRRRRRR

    A 27 year old EMO who is worse than JV offensively and much better defensively when he isn't crying and owed $30M over next 2 years with UFA looming after that.

    I think I'd find a new team to cheer for if we made this move.



    ah... who am I kidding, I'd grin and bear it.

    Eyyy. Now that's thinking. The danger is if the second move goes wrong we're absolutely screwed.

    Not a chance in hell. Who wants to pay slightly-better Hasheem Thabeet 30 million? Not to mention the bills for all the therapists you'd have to send him to so he'd shut the hell up and play some decent basketball...

    If we get Hibbert for cheap, then pass him off for picks (to a team desperate for a 7 footer) I'm in.

    Breaking sideways off this line of thinking, the only thing that makes sense about Toronto getting into Hibbert negotiations is to try and be a 3rd team to help facilitate and hopefully walk away with a solid asset or two somehow.

    Fuck Hibbert. He's beyond overrated. He's not even that good defensively. Has anyone noticed that he's basically invisible defensively when he actually is matched up against any competent offensive C? He's a good rim protector when he doesn't have to worry about his man at all and just gets to camp in the lane. I liked him coming out of college as a decent (ie average) NBA starting C, which really is a steal of a pick at 17...but he's not worth his contract or the crazy amount of hype he gets.

    I can't wait until JV kicks his ass every matchup.

    Hibbert was a beast in the first half of the season. He's got great physical tools and amazing defensive instincts.

    In saying that, if I paid 15M+ a year to an NBA player I wouldn't expect to have to babysit him mentally as well.
    Maybe it's the culture of the Pacers as well, but watching him sulk tells me that he may be great talent-wise but he ain't no leader or even a complement to a leader to bring you to the promised land.

    If I was MU I'd join the trade talks to up his value just to ensure the team that actually gets him has to overpay.

    But seriously, he's likely not something the Raptors may ever need in the duration of his playing career.

    He already does tho. Hibbert is a 7'2 pile of garbage. If he wasn't 7'2 he wouldn't be in the nba. His only skill is his size and he has nothing other than that. No post game no shot no perimeter defence and a madd overrated defence. He only gets blocks because he's fucking 7'2 and he still doesn't rack um up. Dude can't even fucking rebound. I wouldn't even poke him with a 10000000000 light year pole man.

    No thanks. Unless the Pacers amnesty him and we could sign him for the veteran's minimum. He is as good as Bargs in rebounding or even worse.

    There's buying low and buying toxic. This is the latter.
