Here is a taste of my Sunday column:
While the Sixers' lack of a No. 1 scorer is glaring, the first priority should be acquiring a big, physical center.
Though he's a pretty good offensive big man, 22-year-old Spencer Hawes is not an interior defensive force. Hawes will become an unrestricted free agent if the Sixers don't tender him a $4.05 million qualifying offer.
If the Sixers qualify him, they'd have seven days to match another team's offer (once the lockout is over) - and they also must realize Hawes could end up accepting the $4.05 million and returning for another season.
