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.

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.

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

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.

BEFORE LAST night's 76ers-Bulls game it was announced that Chicago coach Tom Thibodeau was named Eastern Conference coach of the month. No wonder, as his team went 15-4 in January, including a 9-1 mark at home. His team wins with defense, as do Doug Collins' Sixers. Last night, the home team did it a little bit better as the Sixers improved to 16-6 with a 98-82 win in which they pulled away in the second half by limiting the Bulls to 3-for-16 shooting and 11 points in the third quarter.

Name one Philadelphia 76er. Just one. Come on. Iverson doesn't count. Nor Barkley or Erving, and certainly not Wilt. Name one Sixer who was in uniform Tuesday night against the Orlando Magic. Now, this gets much, much harder. Name two! If you can name the starting lineup, all five, without looking it up, maybe the team owners should consider buying you a ticket on Stubhub - for $6.40. That was the cost of one upper-deck ticket Tuesday. The 15-42 Sixers lost miserably Monday night to the   11-43 Milwaukee Bucks at the Wells Fargo Center.

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.

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 NBA SEASON is just about a quarter gone and the information it has provided about the 76ers is still very much a mystery. Nerlens Noel still hasn't hit the floor - and probably won't until next season - and though he has been impressive so far, the future of Michael Carter-Williams is still unknown. The three vets on the team - Thaddeus Young, Evan Turner and Spencer Hawes - could all be gone before next season. The NBA careers of Tony Wroten, James Anderson, Hollis Thompson and much of the rest of the roster are very much uncertain.

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.

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.

SPENCER HAWES' 7-year NBA career has been marked by inconsistency and whispers that he's soft. Last season, for instance, he had only three games in which he pulled down at least 15 rebounds. And he went through a stretch of 29 games in which he registered single-digit boards in 27 of them. And on five occasions, he followed up 20-point-plus performances with six-points-or-fewer stinkers. Watching Hawes play could be frustrating, not knowing what you're getting from one game to the other.

Spencer Hawes is arguably the 76ers' best three-point shooter. All 7-foot-1 inches of him. The center was shooting 50 percent from beyond the arc heading into Monday's game against the Golden State Warriors. Thaddeus Young, at 60 percent, was the only teammate with a higher percentage than the seven-year veteran. But while Young has only attempted five three-pointers, Hawes has made 6 of 12, and was on pace to make 164 of 328 this season. That would shatter his career-best of 40 for 115 he had as a Sacramento King during the 2008-09 season.
