Spencer Hawes played just 14 minutes off the bench on Friday, finishing with nine points on 3-of-5 shooting (including two threes) with four rebounds and a steal.
That's great per-minute production but Hawes' playing time this year is officially a concern. If he's not getting a consistent 20-plus minutes per game, he'll probably be unusable in standard leagues. Nov 1 - 1:54 AM

Spencer Hawes played 19 minutes off the bench on Thursday with four points, four rebounds, one assist and one block.

He did get some minutes at power forward, but mostly backed up DeAndre Jordan. Hawes will have a lot of weak games, so his owners might want to shoot for a higher upside, especially considering how durable Blake and DJ are.
Oct 31 - 2:34 AM

Spencer Hawes started for DeAndre Jordan (rest) on Wednesday and had eight points, 10 rebounds and two steals in 36 minutes.

As long as Jordan is healthy, Hawes is going to struggle to see enough minutes to make much of a fantasy dent.
Oct 23 - 1:44 AM

Spencer Hawes had 14 points and seven rebounds in a start at PF on Tuesday, with Blake Griffin resting as a precaution.

Hawes chipped in two steals, one block and one 3-pointer in just 28 minutes, highlighting his unique skill-set for a seven-footer. He was a top-50 player in just 31 minutes last season, and shouldn't see fewer than 25 per game backing up Griffin and DeAndre Jordan, so don't be afraid to grab him in the final rounds.
Oct 22 - 1:29 AM

Spencer Hawes scored 24 points in 23 minutes in Friday's exhibition win, hitting 9-of-15 shots (including three treys) with six rebounds, one steal and one block.

DeAndre Jordan and Blake Griffin combined to play 70 minutes and this illustrates how Hawes has a legit chance to help fantasy squads this year. Hawes will be held back by lower field goal percentage because of all those 3-point attempts, and his defensive stats are nothing to write home about, but all told he's a safe and solid pick in the late rounds of a standard draft.

Spencer Hawes played 23 minutes off the bench against the Blazers on Sunday with 15 points, six rebounds, three assists, one steal, one block and three 3-pointers.

He looks to be penciled in for minutes in the mid 20s with his new team, which should allow him to produce some decent fantasy stats due to his contributions in treys and blocks. Hawes may get some added run in the fourth quarter because DeAndre Jordan can't make free throws. Although, DJ's best quarter for free throws last season was the fourth.
Oct 13 - 9:30 AM

Spencer Hawes made his Clippers debut on Tuesday with nine points, eight rebounds and one assist in 24 minutes off the bench.

He also committed five turnovers and he'll need some time to adjust to a reserve role under Doc Rivers, behind DeAndre Jordan and Blake Griffin. In spite of his backup role, Hawes' 3-point shooting, shot-blocking and rebounding combine with decent percentages and low turnovers to make him a borderline option in standard leagues.
Oct 8 - 2:24 AM

Coach Doc Rivers said he's talked about playing Spencer Hawes, DeAndre Jordan and Blake Griffin together in limited situations.

It would be a very strange move and it's still doubtful to happen unless the wings get in foul trouble. Hawes will be a backup and is unlikely to have more than late-round fantasy value in standard leagues.
Oct 1 - 6:27 PM

Clippers coach Doc Rivers feels that newcomer Spencer Hawes can play equally well with Blake Griffin or DeAndre Jordan.

"When you have a starting big [in Hawes] as a backup big in a league without any bigs, that has to help," Rivers said. Hawes said that a jumbo frontcourt alongside Griffin and Jordan would be "a hell of a lineup" but there are no indications that Rivers is considering the move, so barring injuries he'll have to settle for 25-28 minutes as a backup.
Oct 1 - 1:47 PM

The Clippers officially signed FA C Spencer Hawes to a four-year, $23 million contract early Thursday morning.

Hawes will be a very serviceable backup to DeAndre Jordan and is a worthy starter if DJ gets hurt. But serving as a backup will hurt his fantasy value next season.
Jul 10 - 12:24 AM

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 year's statistical performance cannot be expected while playing under DeAndre Jordan and Blake Griffin.

Spencer Hawes agreed to a four-year, $23 million deal with the Clippers on Friday.

The Clippers gave a ton of minutes to DeAndre Jordan and Blake Griffin last season, so they absolutely needed a big man. Glen Davis was basically their best backup big last season, so it makes sense to pay a little more than market value on Hawes. His fantasy value takes an enormous hit here and he's not worth drafting in standard leagues.
Jul 4 - 7:40 PM

Spencer Hawes is visiting with the Suns on Thursday.

The Clippers are believed to be the favorites and want to use their mid-level exception on him. The Suns do have the second-most cap space in the league and could offer Hawes more money and also need a center, so it's really up to them on how they want to play it. The Blazers are also in the mix. Hawes would have the most fantasy value on the Suns.
Jul 3 - 2:58 PM

Spencer Hawes met with the Clippers and Warriors on Tuesday, but he's reportedly "very interested" in signing with the Trail Blazers.

"He likes everything about the Blazers," a source told the Oregonian's Joe Freeman. The Blazers have also pursued Josh McRoberts in free agency, making no secret about their desire to add a big man with 3-point range. Channing Frye is another possible target, but the Blazers may not actively pursue him until Hawes is out of the running -- working against Portland is the fact that they can't offer more than $5.3 million annually over a four-year contract.

Spencer Hawes has emerged as the Trail Blazers' top target in free agency.

Blazers' general manager Neil Olshey and coach Terry Stotts visited representatives for Hawes in Los Angeles late Monday night shortly after free agency began and the meeting "went very well", according to reports. The most that Portland can offer the unrestricted free agent is $5.3 million per year over four years, so Hawes would be taking a bit of a pay cut from the $6.5 million he earned last season if he signs with the Blazers. The 26-year-old averaged 13.2 points, 8.3 rebounds and 3.0 assists last season and would continue to be a solid mid-level fantasy big man if he signs with Portland.
