At age 25 Spencer Hawes is headed into his seventh NBA season,but soon will be a free agent, his second since joining the league.
With rookie Nerlens Noel out until at least Christmas following ankle surgery, he will be the team's starting center.Hawes appeared in 82 games last season, averaging a little more than 27 minutes per game with 11 points and 7.2 rebounds.
He’s a good shooter and will be a big body that can fill the lane but struggles at the low post.
However he has been plagued with injuries during the 2011-12 seasons and recently took the day off from the 76ers’ first practice of the training camp session at Saint Joseph’s University to rest his twisted knee after slipping on a wet floor the day before
But the Philadelphia 76ers are in a rebuilding mode and his veteran experience could be vital to the development of young players and a good fit into their new up-tempo offense.
“Coach Brett Brown is big on stretching the floor out, much more than we were in the past,” Hawes said. “He kind of has that Spurs mantra where he get threes or shots in the paint. Trying to adapt to that has been an adjustment for us, but guys are receptive.”?
