Spencer Hawes

  1. Timberwolves reportedly turn eye toward Jarrett Jack

    Feb 20, 2014, 1:58 PM EST

    Jarrett Jack, Jameer Nelson

    The Minnesota Timberwolves wanted Andre Miller, but he’s headed to Washington. The Timberwolves still need a better backup point guard to make a playoff push – they’re outscored by 4.7 points per 100 possessions when Ricky Rubio sits (+5.8 when he plays) – so they’ve turned their attention elsewhere. Hearing that the Timberwolves, falling short…

  2. Report: Sixers lower asking price for Evan Turner

    Feb 20, 2014, 10:41 AM EST

    Philadelphia 76ers v Boston Celtics

    The Sixers have been willing to trade any of their three core players all season long, but to make a deal for either Evan Turner, Spencer Hawes or Thaddeus Young, Philadelphia GM Sam Hinkie has been holding out for a first round pick in return. As the deadline approaches and teams get more desperate, things…

  3. Dion Waiters leaves with injury after throwing down monster dunk against Sixers (VIDEO)

    Dion Waiters is known for being a bit of a chucker if you’re the glass-half-empty type, or perhaps as a deadly outside shooting threat if you’re feeling more positive. On this play from Tuesday night’s win over the Sixers, however, he showed that he has the athleticism to attack the rim with the best of…

  4. The Extra Pass: Five teams to watch closely as the trade deadline nears

    Feb 19, 2014, 7:59 AM EST

    Kenneth Faried

    With just more than 48 hours left until the NBA’s trade deadline, it feels like the biggest deals may be behind us — Rudy Gay and Luol Deng have already been moved. Rumors are swirling, but the feeling around the league is it is all a lot of sound and fury signifying nothing. Still there…

  5. Spencer Hawes has Barack Obama toilet paper that Evan Turner won’t use

    Feb 14, 2014, 3:40 PM EST

    Spencer Hawes, Evan Turner, Josh Smith

    At one point, the official Barack Obama store was selling Obama koozies, Obama aprons, Obama handbags, Obama baby bibs, Obama golf balls, Obama tube socks, Obama dog shirts, Obama spatulas and Obama divot tools. However, I don’t think the site ever had Obama toilet paper. But thanks to teammate Evan Turner, we know 76ers center…

  6. There is zero chance the Knicks trade Carmelo Anthony, can we stop talking about it?

    Feb 11, 2014, 1:44 PM EST

    Cleveland Cavaliers v New York Knicks

    I’ve been surprised how often this has come up lately. During radio talk show interviews, in emails, I even had a friend ask me: Are the Knicks trading Carmelo Anthony? No. Not even close. I’m not sure how this delusion even became a talking point. Yes, the Knicks do know Anthony can opt out of…

    Feb 10, 2014, 12:44 AM EST

    Philadelphia 76ers v Los Angeles Clippers

    The Los Angeles Clippers won by 45 and it wasn’t that close. Seriously. Sunday night was just a perfect storm of everything going right for the Clippers and everything going wrong for the Sixers. This was a game where the Clippers were ahead 100-51 after three quarters and went on to win 123-78. Here are…

  8. Report: Spurs, Bobcats may be interested in trading for Sixers’ Evan Turner

    Feb 9, 2014, 5:00 PM EST

    Philadelphia 76ers v Atlanta Hawks

    Not much has changed since the beginning of the season for the rebuilding Sixers, who all along have been willing to part with Evan Turner, Spencer Hawes, and/or Thaddeus Young if the price was right. Philadelphia is holding firm on asking for a first round draft pick in exchange at the moment, and will likely…

  9. Report: Sixers will trade Evan Turner or Spencer Hawes but want first-round pick

    Feb 7, 2014, 12:22 PM EST

    Philadelphia 76ers v Atlanta Hawks

    We are still in the “I’m going to see how much I can get” phase for general managers in trade talks — with the trade deadline two weeks away they still think somewhere another team will flip and give them what they want. The “I’ll take this because it’s the best I can do” phase…

  10. Report: Sixers shopping Evan Turner around, not any takers yet

    Feb 3, 2014, 7:07 PM EST

    Philadelphia 76ers v Sacramento Kings

    Right now we are in the “there’s a lot of talking” phase of the trade season — the trade deadline is Feb. 20 and GMs around the league are trying to gauge the value of their players and see what other teams are asking for theirs. Names such as Arron Afflalo and Glen Davis in…

    US Airways Passenger Jet Crashes Into Hudson River By NYC

    LOS ANGELES — “They have to be shooting a movie or something.” That was Vince Carter’s first thought. Five years ago yesterday, the morning of Jan. 15, 2009, Carter woke up in the bedroom of his home in Edgewater New Jersey, and was lazily sitting on his bed just looking out the window of his…

    Kevin Durant

    Our quick look around the NBA, or what you missed while watching the Dallas Cowboys miss the playoffs again… Kevin Durant, Oklahoma City Thunder. With Russell Westbrook out a whole lot more scoring load falls on Durant’s shoulders — and he answered against a tired Rockets team. Durant had 31 points on 11-17 shooting, 13…

    Dec 19, 2013, 1:26 PM EST

    Omer Asik

    Omer Asik may not like it, but he’s staying a Rocket for now. Probably. After weeks of talks — not to mention media and fan speculation — Rockets’ GM Daryl Morey has looked at the trade market for Asik and decided it’s not good enough. The Rockets have pulled out of all Asik trade talks…

    Five ideas that could help make the NBA even greater: Offensive Goaltending: Let’s get rid of it. The “in the cylinder” call is routinely one of the toughest for refs to get right on the floor, and we know how the subsequent huddle and review process can suck the life out of a game. If it…

  15. Report: Sixers a viable trade destination for Omer Asik

    Dec 8, 2013, 11:00 AM EST

    Omer Asik

    The reports surrounding the status of Rockets big man Omer Asik will continue their steady stream until the inevitable trade happens. Houston wanted to make it work with Asik playing alongside Dwight Howard, but that experiment failed and with Asik being disgruntled in his situation and constantly requesting to be traded, the Rockets seem determined…

    NEW YORK – The Nets fell to 4-11 on the season after an early blowout ended up becoming a heartbreaker before the final buzzer sounded. But the vibe around the team is good despite the rough start, because some of the key players believe that the recent effort shown has the beginnings of trending things…

    Memphis Grizzlies at San Antonio Spurs

    The top of our rankings remain solid this week, but after a bad weekend of injuries there were a few shakeups farther down with more to come. 1. Spurs (12-1, Last Week No. 1). They are the winners of 10 in a row and are doing it with great defense, good offense, not much Tim…

  18. Report: Derrick Rose to have surgery Monday, likely to repair meniscus and end season

    Nov 24, 2013, 5:00 PM EST

    Derrick Rose

    Derrick Rose will have surgery on his right knee on Monday, coach Tom Thibodeau said Sunday. Rose has a choice with getting his torn right meniscus repaired, although both options involve surgery (and it depends somewhat on the tear itself). Both options have big impacts on the Bulls front office and its next move. One…

    Spencer Hawes Sixers

    Spencer Hawes ladies and gentlemen. With the Sixers down three and 3.9 seconds left against the Bucks, Hawes set a pick then slid down the sideline and wasn’t option No. 1 on the play — plus Gary Neal had him well defended — but Hawes got the pass and went up with it, knocking down…

    Three takeaways from a busy Wednesday night around the league: It was Paul George, in the Garden, with the dagger It’s a crazy thing to watch an entire arena lose all hope, all at once. The Knicks were well on their way to a statement win over the Indiana Pacers. Maybe it could have been…

  21. NBA All-Star balloting opens with some interesting questions

    Nov 15, 2013, 4:56 PM EST

    Kobe Bryant

    If he doesn’t come back until December, is Kobe Bryant still a starting All-Star guard in the West? Or should Stephen Curry or James Harden have that spot? Does Kevin Love move past Tim Duncan into the starting lineup? Is Paul George a starter in the East? Is it time for a Derrick Rose/Kyrie Irving…

    Toronto Raptors v Milwaukee Bucks

    One of the best parts about the start of any season is the chance to get familiar with the new faces in the league.

The Sixers beat the Bulls 107-104 on Saturday to improve their undefeated record to 3-0 on the season. Chicago and Miami…
