In a Seattle Jamal Crawford Pro-Am game, Spencer scored 58 points and collected 17 rebounds. I can’t believe a guy on the Sixers actually knows how to rebound first of all. Spencer went 19/30 from the field and 18/22 (WHAT?!) from the free throw line. He now has the highest scoring mark by an NBA player this summer. I think those 22 free throw attempts is more than the Sixers had all of last season. I wonder what Doug Collins thinks of this video, what do you guys think? The Sixers Sense

Collins, sources say, pushed for the Sixers to amnesty aging power forward Elton Brand to clear the cap of most of his $18 million salary. The Sixers used that space to sign Nick Young and Dorell Wright - both likely to walk in free agency - and extend Spencer Hawes' deal for another year at $6.5 million. Philadelphia Inquirer

While attention in Philadelphia is focused on the future of free-agent center Andrew Bynum, none of his rivals would be surprised if Hinkie used this week to begin a shakeup. Jrue Holiday, Evan Turner, Thaddeus Young and Spencer Hawes would be the Philadelphia veterans who would draw the most interest, depending on Hinkie's yet-to-be-defined preferences. SI.com

Former Washington standout Spencer Hawes happened to show up at the St. Regis Hotel in New York where NBA owners are meeting to discuss the possible sale of the Sacramento Kings to an investment group that wants to relocate the team to Seattle. You might think Hawes would have divided loyalties. He grew up in Seattle and was drafted by Sacramento in 2007, playing three seasons with the Kings. However, Hawes is a diehard Sonics fan.

"Honestly, I think it's going to be good to get it over with," Sixers center Spencer Hawes said. "With all the expectations we had coming in and the way the season has gone, it will be nice to take the positive going forward and try to flush the rest of it." Philadelphia Inquirer

Collins publicly mentioned that Hawes had just one rebound in 21 minutes. But instead of sulking, as he has sometimes done in the past, the 76ers’ 7-foot-1 center responded with much better play. “Spencer said, ‘I looked at myself and said that was the truth,’ ” Collins recalled after Wednesday’s 100-92 victory over the Bucks. “That’s what really good players do — examine themselves and say, ‘I can do better.’ That’s what he did.” Hawes said hearing it from Collins helped. “Coach (said), ‘We’ve got to know every night what you’re bringing to the table, what we’re going to get from you,’ ” Hawes said. “I think making a more concerted effort toward that has helped me and just slowing down (was important, too).” phillyburbs.com

Hawes said it's a bit "hypocritical" considering Seattle lost his hometown Sonics how Sacramento could lose the Kings but said this is business. "There’s a sale agreement that’s in place there was a pretty big check that was cashed to secure that it goes through," Hawes said. "This is a business and when you agree to sell a business I don’t think it’s necessarily written in any by- laws that you necessarily have the right to match any offer. I don’t know how all the intricacies of this work but I wish the first time around the city of Seattle would have acted like Sacramento did with all the efforts." Sulia
