Sixers’ Spencer Hawes agrees to extension
The Philadelphia 76ers and center Spencer Hawes agreed to a two-year extension Wednesday, worth an estimated $13 million, according to Yahoo! Sports.
Hawes just completed his fifth NBA season, averaging 9.6 points and a career-high 7.3 rebounds. He also set career highs in free-throw percentage, field-g0al percentage and blocks last season. Hawes can not sign that extension until July 11. The Miami Heat, Minnesota Timberwolves and Portland Trail Blazers were also rumored to be interested in Hawes.
Hawes, 24, was traded in 2010 from Sacramento where he was the 10th overall pick in the 2007 Draft.
