Spencer Hawes Rumors
The Charlotte Hornets announced today that center Spencer Hawes underwent a magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) which revealed a sprain of the medial collateral ligament (MCL) in his right knee. Hawes is listed as out for Game 6 tomorrow night in Charlotte and will be re-evaluated in a week. He suffered the injury during the Hornets win in Game 5 last night in Miami. Hawes has appeared in five playoff games for Charlotte with averages of 3.6 points (.462 FG%) and 3.2 rebounds in 10.6 minutes per game.
B/R: Will Seattle ever get another franchise? If so, should the team be called the Sonics? NR: I hope it has a franchise again. It should be called the Sonics, for sure. Nothing should change. Keep the same colors—just swag the jerseys out. S–t, the main reason Seattle should have a team is because of the ballers it produced. Kevin Durant right now would tell you [that] if he had the chance to go to the Sonics or stay in OKC, he for sure would be in Seattle, and he wouldn’t want to leave ever. Myself, Isaiah Thomas—he has f–king offense—Jamal Crawford, we could build a Seattle team that would compete in the NBA, for sure. Brandon Roy, Marvin Williams, give us Zach LaVine, Avery Bradley, Aaron Brooks, Spencer Hawes, Jon Brockman, Rodney Stuckey…we’re taking all Seattle guys.
It’s not as if they didn’t try to get Howard out of Houston. Charlotte offered Al Jefferson and Spencer Hawes, according to the New York Daily News’ Frank Isola. Industry sources tell Forbes that Miami called, knowing that Chris Bosh could be lost for a significant amount of games if he’s suffering from a second round of blood clots.
Frank Isola: Houston Rockets turned down Charlotte’s offer of Al Jefferson and Spencer Hawes for Dwight Howard, according to league sources.
Q: Who on the team would you say is your best friend? Frank Kaminsky: Spencer [Hawes]. His vets passed down certain values to him, and he’s passed down those values to me. The biggest thing that I have learned so far is just to forget. There are so many games and so many things that can happen, so you can’t let things drag on throughout the season, or else you can bury yourself and bad things can happen.
Frank Kaminsky: At @Starbucks where Frank is spelled “Craig” #CraigAtStarbucks. Starbucks Coffee: Foul on us. Two shots (of espresso) for you! Frank Kaminsky: I feel as disrespected as Seattle felt when you sold the Supersonics (cc: @spencerhawes00)
