6 Replacements for Spencer Hawes

On Monday, the Philadelphia 76ers announced that center Spencer Hawes would be out at least two more weeks due to his strained left Achilles tendon.

Counting on Hawes for the rest of the season is a risky proposition at best. In the interim, the team is likely working the phone lines in an attempt to land a big man prior to the March 15 trade deadline.

Now that Philadelphia has parted ways with backup center Francisco Elson, the team needs to acquire an interior presence sooner rather than later. That said, it will be hard for anyone to replicate what Hawes has given the team when healthy.

With Hawes in the lineup, Philadelphia is 12-2—without him, the 76ers are 9-13.

There are a number of players out there who might meet the 76ers needs at the 4 and 5 positions—here's a look at six possible replacements for Spencer Hawes.
