Free agent center Spencer Hawes has agreed to a two-year, $13 million deal with Philadelphia, a source confirmed.

Hawes waited a long time to complete this deal, as he turned down offers from the Sixers last offseason as a restricted free agent in order to become an unrestricted free agent and test the market. The 7-foot-1 big man, taken No. 10 overall by Sacramento in 2007, has averaged 9.6 points, 7.3 rebounds, one block and 2.6 assists per game over his five-year career.

Hawes had an inconsistent campaign in 2011-12, playing in only 37 of 66 regular-season games because of injury. He came up big in the playoffs, though: He combined for 43 points in Games 3 and 4 against the Bulls and tallied 24 rebounds in Games 5 and 6.

Yahoo! first reported the agreement, which can't be signed until the free agency moratorium ends on July 11.
