Hawes on “physical-only” list for Orlando

FoxSports.com is reporting that it has the official list of those players invited to the Orlando Pre-Draft Camp and that Spencer Hawes is on the list of players who won’t play and instead will only take a physical.
Nothing really new there as Hawes said as much the day he announced his intentions. But interesting that these players are regareded as the likely lottery picks (also interesting is that the story says 10 players have been invited to take only physicals, but then lists 11 players).
Hawes’ decision-making process will enter a slightly different realm when the positions for the lottery are determined tomorrow. As we’ve mentioned here previously, Hawes has said the overall situation is as important as how high he will be selected, and once the lottery order is determined, it’ll be easier for him to figure out where he might actually go.
Speaking of Hawes, here’s a list of potential lottery picks from The Sporting News with the comment that “good workouts will bump” up his stock. I would expect that’s exactly what will happen as Hawes has apparently put back on much of the weight he lost during the season — which will alleviate that concern a bit in the eyes of NBA scouts — and his skill-set will likely impress more in person than it does on tape.
Here’s another story indicating that the Bulls would be interested in Hawes. I would imagine Hawes would be pretty intrigued by that possibility, as well.
