David Hawkins (born October 28, 1982 in Washington, D.C., USA) is an American professional basketball player. A 1.93 m (6 ft 4 in) tall swingman, Hawkins is currently playing with the Italian Euroleague club Olimpia Milano.
Hawkins played college basketball at Temple University 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 All Atlantic Ten second team and to the 2003-04 All Atlantic Ten first team, averaging 16.9 and 24.4 points per game respectively.
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.
