Coach Doug Collins said that the challenge in the early part of the 76ers season has been getting more production from more players. It's not an unusual challenge, Collins said, but better play must coaxed out of about three quarters of his team. Following Monday's practice, Collins said that the rest of the 10-7 Sixers have to produce as effectively as Jrue Holiday, Thaddeus Young, and Evan Turner. They are combining to average more than 47 points per game. "I have three guys playing at an extremely high level - Jrue, Thad, and Evan," Collins said.

As the curtain rose in the room some 30 feet above the 76ers' practice court at Philadelphia College of Osteopathic Medicine, media members went to the window to get a glance of what Sixers fans have been waiting to see for more than a month. There on the court was center Spencer Hawes, planting hard on his left foot with no hesitancy or apprehension, and running through sets at the team's Tuesday practice as the Sixers (25-17) made ready for Wednesday's game at Indiana. Hawes, who has missed 27 of the last 28 games with a strained left Achilles' tendon, is expected to be in the starting lineup for the first time since he played on Feb. 6 in the Sixers' 95-90 victory over the Los Angeles Lakers at the Wells Fargo Center.

Although the 76ers have recently turned in some of their best performances of the season and ended a 15-game road losing streak, the bottom line is that just 11 games remain until the playoffs, and the Sixers are on the outside looking in. On the bright side, the Sixers' 100-92 win over Milwaukee on Wednesday prevented the Bucks from sweeping the season series from the Sixers. Also, the Sixers, who play at Cleveland on Friday night at 7:30, have gotten great play from center Spencer Hawes.

Of all the working parts that must come together if the 76ers are going to realize their potential, transitioning Spencer Hawes from center to power forward - a position he's never played - is pretty low on the list. One week after the Sixers re-signed Hawes to a two-year, $13 million deal, they then signed 6-foot-11, 270-pound Kwame Brown. Sixers coach Doug Collins anointed Brown the starter and immediately said Hawes would start at power forward. The blockbuster trade for center Andrew Bynum partially scuttled those plans, relegating Brown to the bench but not altering the plans for Hawes, who welcomes the opportunity to play power forward alongside the massive, 285-pound Bynum "The way I play, alongside a bigger body guy it could be that I'm better suited there," Hawes said.

The 76ers said Monday that center Spencer Hawes was examined by Richard Ferkel of the Southern California Orthopedic Institute over the all-star break, and the doctor recommended that Hawes no longer wear a protective boot. He said that Hawes should not play in a game for at least two more weeks. - Inquirer staff

Spencer Hawes one day will consider following a certain right-wing right tackle into elected office. In 2010, Jon Runyan parlayed his fame as an Eagle into a congressional seat in New Jersey -- a tack Hawes can see taking: "If the opportunity presents itself ... " For now, Hawes, 24, will just play center for the Sixers as they seek their first title in almost 30 years. He said he has a hard time finding informed debates with his less civic-minded peers in the NBA. "They don't last very long.

The 76ers reached agreement in principle on a two-year, $6 million contract extension with Lavoy Allen on Sunday, the first day of free agency, according to sources with knowledge of the situation. The deal cannot be officially signed until the moratorium on signings is lifted on July 11. Allen, a 23-year-old forward-center from Temple, was the 50th overall pick in the 2011 NBA draft. After averaging 4.1 points and 4.1 rebounds in 41 regular-season games, 15 of them as a starter, Allen was better in the playoffs, averaging 6.3 points and 5.0 rebounds.
