HoopsHype Spencer Hawes rumors

February 20, 2014 Updates

The Philadelphia 76ers have traded center Spencer Hawes to the Cleveland Cavaliers in exchange for two second round picks, a person with knowledge of the deal confirmed to USA TODAY Sports. The person spoke on the condition of anonymity because the deal had not yet been announced. The seven-year veteran has averaged 13 points and 8.5 rebounds for a Sixers team that, at 22-33, is just three games out of playoff position in the Eastern Conference. USA Today Sports

Sixers general manager Sam Hinkie has reportedly discussed the possibility of dealing Hawes and fellow veterans Evan Turner and Thaddeus Young with every team in the NBA as the trade deadline looms at 3 p.m. Thursday, though a source close to the situation has said there's a "good chance" nothing happens. Perhaps that's because the Sixers, who have more available space under the salary cap than any team in the league, are asking for a first-round draft pick as compensation for any of those three, and because Turner and Hawes are in the final season of their contracts.
