Hawes Traded To Philadelphia 76ers
PHILADELPHIA, Pa. (AP) -- Former Washingtoon Husky and Sacramento King center Spencer Hawes was traded today along with forward Andres Nocioni to the Philadelphia 76ers for center Samuel Dalembert.
"We are excited to add two players in Spencer Hawes and Andres Nocioni who will help us immediately and provide us with additional frontcourt depth," Sixers general manager Ed Stefanski said in a statement. "Spencer is a young seven-footer who will provide us with versatility at the center position, while Andres will provide us with a tough veteran presence."
Hawes, a 7-1 center, averaged 10 points and 6.1 rebounds last season. He was Sacramento's first-round draft pick in 2007.
Nocioni and Hawes join a rebuilding team that missed the playoffs last season and has the No. 2 overall pick in next week's draft.
The Sixers have a new coach in Doug Collins and some talented players already on the roster. They expect to improve significantly after an awful 27-win season.
Hawes, the 10th overall pick three years ago, has averaged 8.8 points and 5.5 rebounds in his career.
