19. Roy Hibbert

Roy Hibbert was drafted by the Toronto Raptors in 2008 but was shipped off in a six-player trade to the Indiana Pacers, where he would play for his first seven seasons in the NBA.  Playing at Center, Hibbert was a fantastic defensive presence in the paint, and he would have three straight years (2011-12 to 2013-14), where he was in the top five in Blocks per Game.  In the last of those years, Hibbert was named a Second Team All-Defensive Selection.

An All-Star twice (2012 & 2014), Hibbert averaged over 10 Points per Game in six straight years.  He was traded to the Los Angeles Lakers in 2015, and overall, as a Pacer, Hibbert averaged 11.1 Points, 6.8 Rebounds, and 1.9 Blocks per Game with a PER of 16.2.
