The Lakers are in talks with the Pacers for a trade that would send center Roy Hibbert to Los Angeles, according to ESPN's Marc Stein.
Indiana drafted center Myles Turner with its first round pick in the NBA draft last month and are now looking to unload the former All-Star Hibbert, while the Lakers are hoping to add a veteran big man to the roster after losing out on free agent targets LaMarcus Aldridge and Kevin Love.
The deal has been agreed upon by both sides with the details to be worked out following the ending of the NBA's trade moratorium on July 9, according to ESPN
Hibbert started 76 games for the Pacers last season while averaging 10.6 points and 7.1 rebounds last season, and is just one year removed from making the Eastern Conference All-Star team for the second time in his career.
