Somebody nudged Ed Stefanski...

...out of his self-induced slumber. Phil Jasner reports the Sixers of one of three teams negotiating with unrestricted free-agent forward Hakim Warrick

The 6-foot-9 Warrick, a Philadelphia native that played his high school ball from at Friends Central, has spent his four years with the Memphis Grizzlies. The Milwaukee Bucks and Cleveland Cavaliers are also showing interest in the former Syracuse star.

According to Jasner, the Sixers are offering a one-year deal probably for their midlevel exception, worth a maximum of about $5.8 million. Warrick, 27, made $2,119,102 last season.

The No. 19 overall pick in the first round of the 2005 draft, the athletic Warrick was a member of Syracuse's NCAA national championship team in 2003. He appeared in 82 games last season, averaging 11.6 points and five rebounds.

He holds career averages of 10.2 points and 4.3 rebounds, shooting 50 percent.
