Signs with the Clippers. Interesting place to land. Two big man that demand minutes in front of him. However he didn't sign because of the money. He could have received similar contracts elsewhere.

Got to think he is in line for minutes. 96 minutes per game at PF and C. 3 guys...still seems like he has a good opportunity.

Rotoworld says he is not draftable. Seems like a pretty short sighted opinion considering his productivity the last two years. I foresee a lot of pick and pop opportunities in that offense.

I love this signing, perfect fit mutual fit for Hawes and LAC.  He will get @ 30 minutes as a stretch PF/C, perfect complement to Deandre and Blake.

85% of rotoworld's predictions are huge fails, so nothing new

I love Hawes a lot this year. DJordan can't hit Fts so hawes should play a lot late in games. So give Griff 36 minutes DJ 30 and that leaves 28 for Hawes a nice hunk for a 4 year 23 million dollar contract. I see a top 80 starting position in the postseason rankings with little downside.

I dont like Hawes nearly as much as I did heading into last year. I dont see Jordan getting any less than the 34 mins he played last year. He will be motivated as next year is a contract season and should be primed to possibly even improve on last years numbers.For all the talk about the depth of the frontcourt in LAC land, both Blake G and Jordan played reasonable NBA starter mins (35 & 34 respectively). They surely werent run into the ground like Bulls players in recent seasons. I just dont see them playing any less mins in a stacked western conference where games are competitive just about every night. I think Hawes plays 24-26 mins which probably isnt enough to make him truly fantasy relevant. I see 10ppg-6rpg- with close to a block. His efficiency will be improved, but that still isnt enough to get me excited. Of course his value would go through the roof with a DJ or Blake injury........

So much for hawes wanting to go back home and all that crap.  I'd much rather have gone to Portland. I see stealing time from Robin Lopez a lot easier than from Deandre.


The Trail Blazers reportedly offered Spencer Hawes the same exact contract (length and terms) he received from the LA Clippers.

It appears Hawes would prefer the spotlight of LA, to a smaller market in Portland. Hawes will serve as a backup in LA, and a repeat of last years statistical performance cannot be expected while playing under DeAndre Jordan and Blake Griffin.

I'm agreeing with this.
DeAndre Jordan is only 25, and has had a career of great durability as far as big men go. 3 consecutive seasons of 0 games missed and 82 out of 82 games started.

Don't see why they would backtrack and offer DJ much less minutes than the 35 he got last season when he set league-wide marks in FG%, rebounding, and was tops as a post defender and improved his blocks tremendously, maybe they bring him down from 35 to 34 or 33..but I don't see much less.

And I don't really see Hawes as highly desirable if he's only getting ~24 or 25 mins, maybe I'm wrong.

Yeah this thread should not be active until DJ/Griffin get hurt, he's going to be a non factor in fantasy this year outside of really deep leagues.  Huge signing for the Clippers though. This will  give them a lot of flexibility as well as not turning their team to cr@p every time one of their bigs has to go out in favor of Ryan Hollins.
