Spencer Hawes Could Be the Steal of the 2014 NBA Free Agency Class

Spencer Hawes was not the most attractive free agent out on the market, but he could definitely be a strong piece of the puzzle to getting the Clippers to realizing their championship aspirations. The Los Angeles Clippers have officially signed veteran center Spencer Hawes to a 4-year contract worth $23 million.  Compared to last year, the production that Hawes can give the Clippers as not only the primary back up center, but also as a spot starter should anything happen to DeAndre Jordan, is a huge improvement. Let's get into a little background on Hawes first. Hawes is the nephew of 10...

NBA Offseason: Cleveland Cavaliers need to add a center after losing Tyler Zeller, Spencer Hawes

With Tyler Zeller being traded to the Celtics, and Spencer Hawes leaving for the Clippers in free agency, the Cavs are in need of center who they can count on next season. Yesterday, the Cleveland Cavaliers sent Tyler Zeller to the Boston Celtics in a trade designed to dump Jarrett Jack's salary on the Brooklyn Nets. Zeller became the latest center to depart the Cavs this offseason. Last week, Spencer Hawes agreed to a deal with the Los Angeles Clippers. At this moment, the Cavs only have two true centers on their roster -- Anderson Varejao and Brendan Haywood -- and neither of them can be...

Regarding Potential Sign-and-Trades for Hawes, Farmar, and Granger

There's been a few signings made, both by the Clippers and by other teams snatching LAC's free agents. Could these deals become sign-and-trades? After every transaction having to do with the Clippers, or a Clippers free agent, this summer, people seem to have one lingering question: can it be a sign-and-trade?  Let's clear up the misconceptions around this issue: Can Spencer Hawes be signed-and-traded?  Can the Clippers use their TPE? Why does this matter? Yes!  Spencer Hawes is the best candidate for a sign-and-trade.  However, due to the rules where a TPE cannot be used in...

How Good of a Deal Was Spencer Hawes?

How Good of a Deal Was Spencer Hawes?

Spencer Hawes was given a 4-year, $23 million contract. Was that a good value? The Clippers recently used their biggest free agency tool, the mid-level exception, to sign backup big man Spencer Hawes to a four year, $23 million contract.  It seems like a good deal for a backup PF/C who can stretch the floor, but it's hard to evaluate a signing without context: what was the market?  The two other biggest names of free agency, as far as stretch bigs were concerned, also signed today: Channing Frye agreed to a four year, $32 million deal in Orlando, and Josh McRoberts got the four year, $23...

NBA Free Agency 2014: Clippers Moving Forward With Limited Flexibility

Now that the Clippers have gotten their third big in Spencer Hawes, what else can they do in free agency? The Clippers entered this off-season with several needs, and not a lot of ways to fill them.  Now, after the news that the team has agreed to sign Spencer Hawes for the full mid-level exception, the biggest tool that Doc Rivers had to work with has been used up.  Aside from trades, the Clippers have four avenues left with which they can upgrade the roster: sign-and-trade deals for existing Clippers, a sign-and-trade deal for the TPE from the Eric Bledsoe trade, the bi-annual...
