The Blazers' top free agent target met with the Golden State Warriors and Los Angeles Clippers on Tuesday, according to Yahoo Sports, soaking in sales pitches from Bob Meyers and Doc Rivers. But, the source said, the meetings did nothing to knock the Blazers out of contention. "He likes everything about the Blazers," the source said. Oregonian

The Blazers can offer Hawes no more than a midlevel exception, which would, at most, pencil out to $5.3 million per year for up to four years. He made $6.5 million last season, when he averaged 13.2 points, 8.3 rebounds and 3.0 assists, while shooting 42 percent from three-point range, for the Philadelphia 76ers and Cleveland Cavaliers. It's unclear how long Hawes will draw out free agency or whether he will visit any other teams. But, the league source said, Hawes is in "no rush" to make a decision. Oregonian

The two main free agents are Spencer Hawes and Deng. The Cavs want Hawes back. Assuming Griffin remains the general manager, he will make a strong push to keep the center. Griffin values big men who can pass and shoot. In fact, the Cavs have been asking Hawes to shoot even more. Cleveland Plain Dealer
