Spencer Hawes reached an agreement with the Philadelphia 76ers on Wednesday, extending his contract for two more years at $13 million. This agreement came just days after Hawes was in Spokane participating in the Jamal Crawford A Plus Classic on Saturday night.
The Seattle Prep grad and former Washington Husky is entering his sixth season in the NBA. Hawes averaged 9.6 points, 7.3 rebounds and 1.3 blocks per game for the Philadephia 76ers in the 2011-12 season.
The Seattle-native has been active in the Seattle basketball community since leaving Washington early for the NBA draft after his freshmen season. Hawes participated in 2011's Seattle NBA charity game and can frequently be spotted at UW sporting events.
SB Nation Seattle asked Hawes a few questions before last Saturday's charity game, covering topics such as Brandon Roy's comeback and his summer plans.
