Forward Ivan Harris has shaved his head since last season with Erie and no longer rocks the braids.

The Erie BayHawks have to make their final two cuts by Wednesday at 5 p.m. to get their roster down to 10 players for the season opener Friday at Fort Wayne.

On Monday night, the BayHawks had a controlled scrimmage at East High School that revealed quite a bit about each of the remaining 12 players. The White team consisted of guards Cedric Jackson, Oliver Lafayette, Rod Wilmont, forwards Ivan Harris, Kyle Goldcamp and center John Bryant.

That team beat the Black team, 34-32. The black team consistead of first-round pick, guard Donell Taylor, guards Zach Sowers and forwards Jackie Manuel, Martin Zeno, Alade Aminu and Jarvis Gunter.

Very competitive game, but here’s what I noticed about each player in the scrimmage.

Here’s who the Erie BayHawks will likely start in Thursday’s 7 p.m. D-League preseason game against the Fort Wayne Mad Ants and Meadville Area Senior High School.

When looking at this starting line up, two things jump out.

If you followed the Erie BayHawks last season, you know Ivan Harris, Jackie Manuel, Jarvis Gunter and Oliver Lafayette.

If you followed them really closely, you know Raheem Moss from training camp. He was the last player cut before the regular season opener.

If you follow area college basketball, you know Gannon center Kyle Goldcamp and Edinboro guard Joe Jones, who is from Erie.

So those seven guys need no major introduction.

The remaining 10 in training camp for the BayHawks?

They’re a different story. Let’s a take a look at them.

Wizards Jazz Basketball

The Erie BayHawks' first-round pick, Donell Taylor, left, played two seasons for the Washington Wizards.

I mean, how many people really knew the D-League did these type of things?

The Erie BayHawks not only drafted Donell Taylor with the second overall pick in Thursday’s D-League Draft, but they pulled off a trade in which they got Georgia Tech big man Alade Aminu for a player off their allocation list, forward Rob Kurz of Notre Dame.
