Spencer Hawes to play in Goon Squad Classic
Add another former Sacramento King to the Goon Squad Classic lineup. Philadelphia 76ers center Spencer Hawes will make his return to the capital city region for the planned November 20th charity game.
A new flyer features the former Kings center, along with Donté Greene, Jimmer Fredette, Kevin Durant and others. Former Kings guard Kevin Martin, now with the Houston Rockets, has also committed to playing in the exhibition.
The game looks to be a go, but it’s still pending an official announcement due to the NBA labor impasse. The players union and owners are conducting another federally mediated negotiating session today. And though the league has cancelled all games for the month of November, an agreement on a new labor deal would probably nix the GSC from happening.
