Hawes, Sixers to make NBA history with deal


You may not have known it when he agreed to terms – in fact it’d be pretty sad if you did – but the upcoming contract between the Sixers and Spencer Hawes will make NBA history when it becomes official, according to HoopsRumors.com.

Never before in the history of the National Basketball Association has a player re-signed with the team he accepted a qualifying offer from the year before.

“A qualifying offer is the one-year tender teams must make to players coming off their rookie contracts in order to retain the right to match offers from other teams,” Chuck Myron of HoopsRumors explains. “Usually, qualifying offers are merely the starting point for negotiations, if that.”

As Myron explains, players rarely accept qualifying offers. The typical course of action after a qualifying offer is extended is for a player to either agree to an offer sheet with another team or end up signing with his current team for more money than the qualifying offer called for.

Hawes last season actually became one of only 14 players in NBA history to accept a qualifying offer. The group is filled with middling players, though Ben Gordon, Raymond Felton and former No. 1 overall pick Michael Olowokandi make appearances in the list.

One of the 14 names is new Sixer Nick Young, who agreed to a one-year, $6 million deal with the team on Friday (see story). Young accepted a qualifying offer from the Wizards last season at about $3.7 million.

So... yeah. The next two years of Hawes’ career in Philly might not be historic, but his contract will be.

****, I am surprised that has never happened before. I guess I thought more guys had accepted the QOs in the past.

That's because players accept the QO so they can become an unrestricted FA because they are unhappy with what their current team is offering and nobody else is offering a contract they are happy with so they play out the year to hopefully increase their value and to be more likely to get a better offer in UFA because teams aren't afraid to offer you a contract that their current team can automatically match. Accepting the QO so you can sign with the same team again makes no sense and Hawes probably lost money because of it. Looks like no one else wanted him...

You guys are jerks, i thought all of you are tired of the Dwight circus, at least this is interesting IMO. I mean...not one other person before him?

Very interesting read.
