According to  (Roy) Hibbert, they (Los Angeles Lakers) want him to “be mobile, play defense and protect the rim.” And the 2014 Second Team All-Defense honoree is receptive toward this role.

“Look who we have in terms of scoring power: Lou Williams, Nick Young, Kobe (Bryant), JC (Jordan Clarkson), D’Angelo (Russell),” Hibbert said. “All those guys can score, so I’m not gonna sit here and say, ‘I need the rock.’ … I know what I need to do to help this team win, and that’s to shore up the defensive end.”
