Southeast Notes: Hawes, Lamb, Napier, Chalmers

Spencer Hawes feels refreshed in the wake of the offseason trade that took him from the Clippers to the Hornets, and he’s shown signs of bouncing back after a poor season last year, as Rick Bonnell of the Charlotte Observer examines. Hawes regrets his decision to sign with the Clippers in 2014.
“When you feel like you made the wrong decision, it adds a lot of pressure and it builds and builds. Good as it looked on paper, it just wasn’t the right fit for whatever reason. That’s what ate at me the most, that I felt like I kind of failed myself,” Hawes said to Bonnell. “Then when you get a clean cut, it allows you to start over and build a new foundation and get your career back on track. I feel like going out there, individually it took a turn and not for the better.”
The 27-year-old center is seeing about the same amount of playing time with the Hornets that he did in L.A., but he’s shooting 52.0% compared to last year’s 39.3%. See more on the Hornets and other Southeast Division insight:
