Could The Nuggets Trade For Hibbert?


Apparently. the Indiana Pacers are shopping around Center Roy Hibbert. They are quietly entertaining offers for the big-man, and one of the teams that has been mentioned is the Denver Nuggets. The Nuggets who have a loaded front court could look to deal away two of their big for Hibbert or even a different combination.

Another possibility for the Nuggets could be trading Randy Foye a big and a pick Hibbert. Foye can’t be happy with acquisition of Aaron Afflalo, could this could make sense. The Nuggets have been one of the teams trying to go after Kevin Love, so why wouldn’t they try to go after Hibbert? One thing is for sure, and that is that the Nuggets don’t need another big man without shipping another out. In my opinion, the Nuggets should sit tight as I believe Roy Hibbert won’t be worth trading any of the player that are already on the roster.

    Agree with trading Foye

      No way should we think about Hibbert cause his a bit special, although a explosive combo guard would be very good who is acturally tall to go along with Ty Lawson

    I’d actually love to trade for Hibbert. I’ve been “secretly” hoping the Nuggs were talking to the Pacers as soon as I heard he was “secretly” on the market.

    Maybe…Foye or Chandler & McGhee and a future 1st. I’d do it in a heartbeat. If you take Hibbert for what he is, a defensive stalwart with an okay post up game, he’d immediately gives our team somewhat of a low post presence and improves our defense. Also, I think he and Faried would play well off each other because he can pass pretty well for a big too.
