The Charlotte Hornets didn't have any competent three-point shooters on their roster last season, and it was a serious problem.

Spencer Hawes Wears Awesome Christmas Suit For Clippers-Warriors (Photo)

Los Angeles Clippers veteran Spencer Hawes didn’t play in Thursday’s Christmas Day matchup against the Golden State Warriors, but he received plenty of attention for his choice of attire.

Los Angeles Clippers: Why Spencer Hawes is the X factor

Sometimes when teams sign players, you immediately know what kind of impact that player might have on your team.

Philadelphia 76ers: Where Does Spencer Hawes Stand?

When the Philadelphia 76ers traded for Spencer Hawes back in 2010, it was a debate as to whether or not he could be a contributing factor to the team.  The Sixers had parted ways with long time center Samuel Dalembert as Hawes was brought in to be a replacement.
