76ers center Spencer Hawes has tentatively agreed to sign the Sixers' $4.1 million qualifying offer for the 2011-12 season. Hawes is expected to be in Philly tonight. Signing the qualifying offer means that Hawes, who was a restricted free agent this off-season, will become an unrestricted free agent in the summer of 2012.

Hawes started 81 games last season for the Sixers, his first with the club. He averaged 7.2 points and 5.7 rebounds a game. Hawes, 23, is a 7-foot center expected to compete for the Sixers' starting spot at center.

The Sixers are practicing today from 3-6 p.m. at the Philadelphia College of Osteopathic Medicine. With the addition of Hawes, the team now has 14 players under contract for the upcoming season.
