Cavs Consider Deal For Spencer Hawes

February 20 at 8:31am CST By Chuck Myron

The Cavaliers are eyeing Spencer Hawes, among many potential targets, tweets Marc Stein of ESPN.com. Hawes is among a trio of veterans for whom Philadelphia has been demanding a first-round pick. The Cavs have their own 2014 first-rounder, and a pair of extra first round picks that could come their way for 2015.

The Rockets have also shown interest in Hawes in connection to talks surrounding Omer Asik. Hawes, who’s making $6.6MM this year, will be an unrestricted free agent at season’s end

The Cavs already have Anderson Varejao, Tristan Thompson, Tyler Zeller and Anthony Bennett, among others, competing for time on the interior. That would make Hawes, a 7’0″ center, a tough squeeze onto the roster. The 25-year-old is nonetheless having a career year, putting up his best-ever numbers in points, rebounds, assists and three-point shooting.
