I think Hickson has plenty of potential, but he is apparently an elite level knucklehead that we dont need around our team. He doesnt fit the environment we seem to be building here.

If you are talking Hickson, may as well throw anthony randolph into the conversation.

Hawes is better than Mullens at everything Mullens does, plus he is a good rebounder, passer, shot-blocker, etc - all the things Mullens doesnt really do at all. Until Mullens can consistantly shoot over 35% from 3, he shouldnt really be playing more than 12 minutes a game.

Sorry is there a suspension on Hickson I'm not aware of or is this just an unfounded bias? Hickson has potential to be a top 10 power forward..

Hawes is an RFA right? No way Philly doesn't match any reasonable offer.

Free agent center Spencer Hawes has agreed to a two-year, $13 million deal with Philadelphia, a source confirmed.

Hawes waited a long time to complete this deal, as he turned down offers from the Sixers last offseason as a restricted free agent in order to become an unrestricted free agent and test the market. The 7-foot-1 big man, taken No. 10 overall by Sacramento in 2007, has averaged 9.6 points, 7.3 rebounds, one block and 2.6 assists per game over his five-year career.

Hawes had an inconsistent campaign in 2011-12, playing in only 37 of 66 regular-season games because of injury. He came up big in the playoffs, though: He combined for 43 points in Games 3 and 4 against the Bulls and tallied 24 rebounds in Games 5 and 6.

Yahoo! first reported the agreement, which can't be signed until the free agency moratorium ends on July 11.
