Hawes’ agent, Greg Lawrence, told Yahoo! Sports the two sides had agreed to the extension.
Hawes, a five-year veteran, averaged 9.6 points and 7.3 rebounds per game last season, his second with the 76ers.
Why? Why? Why would you do that. I would have understood a one year deal since Brand is coming off the books and you will have some cap space for next years big free agency. But now you are paying $6.5 million over the next two years. I really hope they have a plan because between the Celtics, Knicks, Nets in your division, and then the Heat in the same conference, there isn’t much to look forward to as a Sixers fan.
Ps. Evan Turner isn’t worried about the Celtics, Knicks, Nets, or Heat; he’s just glad Toronto didn’t get Steve Nash!
