MIL Power Forward/Center: 7’1, 245 lbs; 11th year, Washington

NBA Role: offensive-minded pivot • Salty DOG

Spencer Hawes is a perfect fit for offensive systems built on ball movement and floor spacing: his two specialties; gifted passer at the five spot – finds cutters in the lane and lofts pristine lobs to fellow bigs, over the top, for easy looks; shooting big: likes launching threes after rolling out to the perimeter, can spot up and knock down corner treys following a guard’s dribble penetration; slow footed, not much of a defender or rim protector; excellent style doesn’t exactly define Big Spence – known to sport the occasional tacky suit, he’s also the ‘mastermind’ behind Jeremy Lin (BKN)‘s eclectic hairstyles; acquired by MIL (Feb. ’17) – Hawes could earn minutes in J-Kidd’s second unit
