On Spencer Hawes
Hawes isn’t an orthodox center. He’s 7-foot-1, but he does his best work offensively along the perimeter. The Hornets took on his contract – three seasons and about $17 million in guaranteed money – in part to move on from the failed Stephenson experiment. But they also needed another center, with Bismack Biyombo leaving for Toronto, and Hawes has offensive skills coach Steve Clifford desires.
