The Sporting News’ Sean Devaney is reporting that Larry Bird is seeking offers for Roy Hibbert:

After a flurry of rumors dating back a little more than a month, there has not been much to speak of when it comes to the possibility of Indiana moving center Roy Hibbert in a trade. But, according to multiple front-office sources, the Pacers have quietly sought out possible new landing spots for their enigmatic big man.

“I would say they’ve been doing that, but quietly,” one front-office source said.

“They’re open to making major changes, if they’re there,” one general manager told Sporting News. “I think they’d be disappointed to see that same core group back intact, so it is a matter of, how drastic can the changes they make be? Moving Hibbert for multiple pieces would be a pretty drastic change, but they’re asking.”

Wow.

Let’s get right to what everyone is thinking: Rajon Rondo for Roy Hibbert?

It’s an intriguing scenario considering the Pacers reported desire to upgrade the point guard position.
