THERE ISN'T MUCH Spencer Hawes can't do on the basketball court. The 7-1 center, whom the 76ers acquired from the Sacramento Kings, along with Andres Nocioni, for Sam Dalembert, has already impressed new teammates and coach Doug Collins with his shooting, passing and total court awareness. Off the court, Hawes is just as versatile, as comfortable talking about pick-and-rolls as he is discussing world politics or music or current events. Yesterday morning at Saint Joseph's University, Collins oversaw his first workout with his new team, and was impressed with Hawes, among others.

He was the Rendell administration's antidote to a city-owned utility mired in the habits of a fat monopoly with little interest in innovation or efficiency. Here was Philadelphia Gas Works' first permanent president and CEO in almost six years, a real businessman with varied utility experience who thought of attracting new customers and improving service. But James Hawes III, who came to PGW after a stint as head of operations in Nebraska for the baby Bell company based in Denver, has spent money as if he were still operating in the land of lucrative stock options and not a municipal utility, records show.

REGRETS, we've had a few . . . And for this week's installment of Daily News Regrets, we turn to Feb. 27, 1998, when the Editorial Board had this to say about certain high-ranking executives at the troubled Philadelphia Gas Works: "PGW is on a roll, but City Council is in an uproar because the Hawes team received generous bonuses last year for the turnaround they launched in 1996. (CEO Jim)Hawes got $75,000, (COO Gregory) Martin $45,000 and (chief financial officer Ramon) Sharbutt $30,000 - typical bonuses in the utility business, but stunning in government . . . (Yet)

For James Hawes III and Gregory Martin, the gravy train ended long ago when Hawes resigned as Philadelphia Gas Works president and Martin was given the boot as chief operating officer. Gone are the perks, the fancy meals, the trips paid for by vendors, the excesses that were the emblem of this disgraced team. Yesterday, as snow and slush piled up outside, Hawes and Martin experienced a legal cold shower in a preliminary hearing before Municipal Court Judge Louis Retacco. But the Commonwealth's case, which continues today, has little to do with fast living in swank restaurants.

PGW President James Hawes III must be a firm believer in the "do unto others as you'd have them do unto you" ethic. Just as he received lavish relocation expenses beyond what his contract provided and kid-glove oversight on his company credit-card spending, he made sure that at least some on his staff were treated generously. Take the case of lawyer Sydney Marie Avent, until recently PGW's $135,000-a-year general counsel. Avent has been with the utility's legal operation almost from the start back in the mid-'80s.

As he prepared to move his wife and two kids here from Nebraska in the fall of 1996, former Philadelphia Gas Works President James Hawes III spent $1,366 in utility funds to rent his wife a car. That seemed odd to company auditors, who recently concluded a review of almost $600,000 in credit card charges and other expenses for Hawes and roughly 60 other top level employees at the city-owned utility. Odd because Hawes was entitled to a company-paid car and was driving an Olds Aurora.

SACRAMENTO, Calif. - It takes a lot to distract Lavoy Allen. But the 76ers forward/center, a Temple graduate, said he took time out of his preparation for Sunday's game with the Sacramento Kings to watch the Owls go down to Indiana in the NCAA East Regional. Temple lost, 58-52. "I watched it, and I was rooting for my guys," Allen said. "But I have been focused on getting ready to play the Sacramento Kings today. " The Hoosiers closed with a 10-0 run. "They almost had them, yeah," Allen said of the Owls.

When District Attorney Lynne Abraham on Thursday disclosed a criminal probe of executive spending practices at PGW, the company's public relations team quickly circled the wagons for a barrage of media inquiries. At PGW, the crisis manager was Harvey Clark, the former Channel 10 reporter and a one-time political candidate in a losing primary fight with then U.S. Rep. Tom Foglietta. Clark, the $75,000 PGW manager of communications and media relations, denied any improper expenditures.

Last fall, when reports came in that El Nino might wreak havoc with weather on the East Coast, Philadelphia Gas Works President James Hawes 3rd decided to put together a contingency plan to cover potential revenue loss. And while company revenues were not adversely impacted by weather through December, the balmy days that followed turned the utility upside down. "We heard that things might go south and that's what happened. It has been much like an emotional roller coaster," Hawes told City Council's finance committee yesterday.

The reshaping of the Sixers took a dramatic turn Thursday. The team parted ways with starters and faces-of-the-franchise Evan Turner and Spencer Hawes, plus reserve Lavoy Allen, while acquiring three expiring contracts and five second-round picks in a series of moves before Thursday's 3 p.m. trade deadline. Turner and Allen were shipped to the Indiana Pacers in exchange for Danny Granger, who has an expiring contract, and a 2015 second-round pick. The Sixers also traded center Hawes to the Cleveland Cavaliers for forward Earl Clark, center Henry Sims, and two 2014 second-round draft picks - one from Cleveland and the other from the Memphis Grizzlies.

Center Spencer Hawes has endured his share of losses, trade rumors, and uncertainty over his future during a 76ers season in which perseverance has become mandatory. Despite posting career highs in virtually every significant category and assuming a major leadership role, Hawes has experienced more than his share of frustration with a team that has lost more than twice as many games as it has won. "The majority of nights you go home and look at the scoreboard and your team has suffered a loss," he said.

Spencer Hawes didn't like the question. Understandably so. A confident 25-year-old, the 76ers center believes his best basketball is ahead of him. But will it show up on a stat sheet? The same question goes for his teammates Thaddeus Young and Evan Turner. One could argue that there's a lot of uncertainty surrounding their futures. Right now, they are all having career seasons, doing things even some within the organization never envisioned happening. Outside of rookie point guard Michael Carter-Williams, they are the stars of the team.

FOURTEEN. THERE were many numbers accumulated during the 76ers' 126-125 double-overtime victory over the Orlando Magic on Tuesday, but the 14 was one that might become more of a trend. It is a number that was produced by Thaddeus Young and Spencer Hawes. It wasn't the number of rebounds they corralled, nor the number of shots they blocked - both good guesses since they are the starting center and power forward. Instead it is the number of three-pointers the two attempted - Hawes with eight and Young with six. While it would appear to be a high number for two of the few power players on the team, coach Brett Brown is on board with those two players pulling the trigger from distance.

The 76ers are not counting on Spencer Hawes or Tony Wroten to play in Wednesday's road game against the Orlando Magic. Hawes was a late scratch Saturday before a 106-98 setback to the Indiana Pacers because of left knee soreness. Wroten also missed the game with a lower back strain. Hawes hurt his knee Friday when he slipped on a wet spot in the fourth quarter of a 115-107 overtime victory over the Milwaukee Bucks. Wroten hurt his back in the middle of last week. The strain forced him to leave Friday's game in the third quarter.

IT DOESN'T really go with conventional thinking to call an end-of-game play for your 7-footer to get the ball near the side out-of-bounds line and attempt a game-tying three-pointer with the clock about to expire, unless he's Dirk Nowitzki. These 76ers aren't conventional, nor is many of the moves coach Brett Brown makes. But that is what this Sixers season is going to be about, and results like last night's 115-107 overtime win over the Milwaukee Bucks will happen every once in a while.

It took nine days and an opponent with more problems than themselves. But at long last the 76ers got another win. Thanks to a matchup that pitted a rebuilding team vs. a struggling one, the Sixers' four-game losing streak is over. On Friday, they defeated the Milwaukee Bucks, 115-107, in overtime at Wells Fargo Center and lifted the weight of searching for their next victory. Never mind that the Sixers (6-8) beat a Bucks team (2-9) that now has a seven-game losing streak and that has a revolving starting lineup.

Statistically, 76ers forward-center Spencer Hawes is off to the best start in his seven-year NBA career, and he attributes it to one simple factor - not having to look over his shoulder. Now in his fourth season with the Sixers (5-8) after playing his first three in Sacramento, the 25-year-old Hawes has prospered knowing that his playing time will be consistent. Hawes is averaging a career-high 33.2 minutes. He is also averaging career highs in scoring (16.2 ppg.) and rebounding (10.2)

THERE IS not a lot, if any, looking back for the 76ers organization this season. The model being put into place is one whose pieces are aligned for the future, and many of those pieces haven't even been obtained yet. But Wednesday night you couldn't help but think what could have been. With Thaddeus Young away from the team due to personal issues, coach Brett Brown moved Spencer Hawes to the power forward position and started Daniel Orton at the center. Hawes properly responded by pouring in his Sixers' career-high 28 points on 10-for-13 shooting.
