Doug Collins hoping for Spencer Hawes turnaround

Sam Sharpe-US PRESSWIRE

Spencer Hawes has been bad this season, and Doug Collins isn't letting it slide.

The Philadelphia 76ers have gotten off to a respectable start, especially considering they are without Andrew Bynum, the star center acquired in the offseason from the Los Angeles Lakers.

However, they have other big-man problems like the curious case of Spencer Hawes. After being re-signed this summer, the 76ers were hoping to see serious production from Hawes in the low post. Instead, they haven't gotten much of a return on their investment at all.

As John Finger of CSNPhilly.com points out in his excellent column, Philadelphia's head coach Doug Collins isn't pleased at all with what's going on and hasn't sugarcoated it.

It's obviously still early in the campaign, but Hawes needs to show something sooner rather than later if he wants to remain part of the everyday rotation. Thus far, Hawes is averaging only 7.2 points and 5.2 rebounds per game while shooting a dismal 62.5 percent from the free throw line.
