Phoenix Suns meet with free agent center Spencer Hawes

Free agent center Spencer Hawes is in town to meet with the Phoenix Suns on Thursday, according to Arizona Sports’ Craig Grialou.

Hawes finished out the 2013-14 season with the Cleveland Cavaliers after being traded from Philadelphia, where he had spent the previous three-and-a-half years. Last year was perhaps his best as a pro, as he posted 13.2 points and 8.3 rebounds per contest in 53 outings with the 76ers and 27 with the Cavs.

The 7-foot-1 big man also developed a reliable outside shot last season, converting 41.6 percent of his three-point attempts. His 128 makes from behind the long line were more than his career total prior to the season.

The seven-year veteran turned 26 in April, and he has put up numbers of 9.7 points, 6.4 rebounds and 46.5 percent field-goal shooting in 24.9 minutes per game in his career.

Hawes, a Washington product originally drafted by Sacramento, is an unrestricted free agent after finishing a two-year, $13.1 million contract that he signed with Philadelphia prior to the 2012-13 campaign.

The 2007 first-round draft pick has reportedly also drawn interest from the Golden State Warriors, Portland Trail Blazers, Miami Heat and Los Angeles Clippers — as well as one of his old teams, the 76ers.
