Tweet of the Night: Roy Hibbert waiting to hear the news on Jennings, Oden and Pekovic

IND_Hibbert_RoyIt has been nearly a month since free agency began in July, and many of the notable names have been taken off the market, as teams begin to fill out their rosters accordingly.

Some important names that are still on the market have yet to officially sign a contract, however, and Indiana Pacers center Roy Hibbert is itching to find out what’s going on with them, as seen below:

Some players simply don’t care about what other players or teams around the league are doing unless it directly involves them or their team. Others pay close attention to the league they play for, and Hibbert is clearly one of them. So lets take a look at what’s going on with some of the players the center mentioned.

Greg Oden hasn’t played a game since suffering this gruesome knee injury back in the 2009-2010 season, but has drawn plenty of interest since making himself available this summer. After impressing a few of the teams that saw him work out last week, he is reportedly most intrigued by the New Orleans Pelicans and the Miami Heat.

The most recent news about the status of Nikola Pekovic came last week, when it was reported that Flip Saunders would visit the center’s agent in New York to iron out the differences about how much Pekovic is truly worth. It is believed that the team offered a four-year, $50 million deal. The center’s agent Jeff Schwartz, however, was apparently not satisfied with the amount and sent in a counter offer.

Brandon Jennings is still mulling over his options. With a lack of interest from teams around the league, the latest rumor on the point guard is that he is considering the idea of picking up the Qualifying Offer from the Milwaukee Bucks to become an unrestricted free agent next summer.

    The only reason Hibbert wants to know whats going on in free agency is because he wants to know what Miami is doing yall made yall moves dont worry about us yea we trying to get somebody your size to play against your weak ass you good when you playing against little guys

      • Raheen Peterson says

        Man yall couldnt beat Miami with out Greg Olden yall better hope we dont get him cause if we do its a 3 peat but first we has to get him if we do yall ass out

        • dan says

          Where to begin.. I could start with your ability to communicate but that’s too obvious. As a heat fan, you wouldn’t know who Greg oden was since he’s been out injured since before you started watching basketball a couple years ago. But let me explain a little bit to you – oden grew up down the street from me and the dude simply matured way faster than everyone else. He looked 35 in high school. His body is way older than his age and the more he plays the more worn down it becomes. Oden makes Jonathan bender look healthy. Even if you get him enjoy the 3-5 games he will play before he gets hurt.
