David Hawkins (born October 28, 1982 in Washington, D.C.marker, USAmarker) is an American professional basketball player. A 1.93 m (6 ft 4 in) tall shooting guard, Hawkins is currently playing with the Italian Euroleague club Montepaschi Siena.

College career

Hawkins played college basketball at Temple Universitymarker for John Chaney's Owls. He became the team's leader after being reinstated to it from a suspension due to bad grades. He was named to the 2002-03 Atlantic Ten Conference All-Atlantic Ten Conference Second Team and to the 2003-04 Atlantic Ten Conference All-Atlantic Ten Conference First Team, averaging 16.9 and 24.4 points per game respectively.

Professional career

Hawkins was not drafted by any NBA franchise and signed for the 2004-05 season with Sebastiani Rieti, then in the Italian second division. His game did not remain unnoticed and as a consequence he agreed to play for Italian powerhouse Virtus Roma in March 2005. Roma's management probably never regretted their choice, as Hawkins finished the season with an average of 17.1 points per game. During the next season in the Italian capital he shined in ULEB's Eurocup, not only averaging 18.5 points per game, but also showing great versatility and leading the competition in steals with 2.9 per game. Roma reached the quarter final and Hawkins showed he was ready for Europe's highest stage, the Euroleague.

Spending two more seasons in Roma, Hawkins helped the team regain something of its past glory by qualifying twice to the Euroleague's Top 16. During those two Euroleague seasons, he averaged 13.6 and 10.9 points per game. Nevertheless, at the end of the 2007-08 season, team manager Dejan Bodiroga decided not to renew his contract. After that, Hawkins signed with another Italian Euroleague team, Armani Jeans Milano. In 2009, he moved to Montepaschi Siena.
