BUY LOW: Roy Hibbert (Indiana). We hear constantly about how some players get paid and become complacent. Some owners might feel that way about Hibbert, who signed a four-year, $58 million contract. It’s still too early to say that, but if you can find an owner of Hibbert who has that sentiment now is the time to get him at a discount. Hibbert is in a shooting slump that has his field goal percentage at 40.7 percent, which is awful for a 7-foot-2 center that should be able to get easy looks from close range. Hibbert shot 49.7 percent from the field last season. There certainly seems to be a lack of confidence right now as Hibbert is shooting just 51.9 percent from the foul line. Hibbert is a 71.9 percent shooter for his career from the charity stripe. The rebounds are there with an average of 8.3 per game and he is blocking 2.5 shots per game. The Pacers offense is struggling as a whole, too. Hibbert will rebound and the shooting averages will rise towards his career marks.
