Four years disqualification for David Hawkins due to cocaine3 aprile 2013
David Hawkins did it again, but this time his career could be permanently damaged: after the 3-months disqualification due to having use of cannabis when he was wearing the Virtus Roma jersey “The Hawk” has been banned again by the Turkish Federation for 4 years, this time because of use of cocaine.
Found positive at the “doping test” after the game between Galatasaray (that fired him after that game) and Gaziantep, the action from Turkey arrived today, that excludes Hawkins from the “high-level basketball”.
The player, seen in Italy on the court of Rieti, Roma, Milano and Siena, spent last two years in Turket , wearing at first the Besiktas jersey (creating with Deron Williams an explosive couple)and then the one of Galatasaray (which pays him 500 thousand dollars ).
The news is of course a shock for basketball fans , who could admire numbers and acrobatics of one of the most solid and powerful American players of the last year.
