Former Erie BayHawks point guard Cedric Jackson is one of five training camp invites for the Cleveland Cavaliers, who open training camp today at Cleveland Clinic Courts in Independence, Ohio. Jackson played college ball at Cleveland State.

This is a step up for Cedric Jackson.

A year ago, he was a rookie point guard in training camp with the Erie BayHawks in the D-League. Now he’s a camp invite for the Cleveland Cavaliers, who open training camp Monday.

Then again, Jackson has NBA talent and should on an NBA roster already. Last season, he got NBA call ups from three different teams including the Cavs, who are an NBA affiliate of the BayHawks.

Now the last team to call Jackson up was the Washington Wizards, who signed him for the rest of the season in the spring of last year. So you might wonder, well, why isn’t he starting camp with the Wizards.

Well, my man Michael Lee of the Washington Post, let us know what happened earlier this summer on his blog.

The team rescinded a qualifying offer for Cedric Jackson last week, making him an unrestricted free agency.

The question is why did this happen.

Erie BayHawks rookie point guard Cedric Jackson left his mark with the Washington Wizards.

In Washington’s final game of the season, Jackson hit the eventual game-winning shot to beat the Indiana Pacers, 98-97, Wednesday night.

Called up by three different NBA teams – Cleveland Cavaliers, San Antonio Spurs and Wizards – Jackson should earn a spot on an NBA roster next season.

While looking for highlights of Wednesday’s game, I came across this video of Jackson doing an interview while with the Wizards about the NCAA Tournament.

After watching the Erie BayHawks lose to Rio Grande Valley, 110-88, Friday night without their rookie point guard Cedric Jackson, I came up with a few conclusions.

Now Jackson received an NBA call up with the Cleveland Cavaliers, who are an NBA affiliate of the BayHawks. This is the first time the Cavs have plucked a player from Erie as they are an NBA affiliate of the BayHawks.

Erie rookie point guard Cedric Jackson is averaging 27 points and nine assists in his last five games.

Erie BayHawks rookie point guard Cedric Jackson confirmed Friday that he will sign a 10-day contract with the Cleveland Cavaliers on Saturday.

Jackson is already in Cleveland and will not play for the BayHawks on Friday night against the Rio Grande Valley Vipers at Tullio Arena.
“It’s truly a dream come true,” Jackson said.

In his last five games, Jackson has averaged 27 points and nine assists for the BayHawks. He scored a career-high 34 in a loss to Austin on Tuesday.

The BayHawks (10-13) are playing tonight against Rio Grande Valley Vipers while the Cavaliers play at home Saturday night against the Oklahoma City Thunder.

With Cleveland starting point guard Mo Williams out with a shoulder injury and back up Delonte West getting diagnosed with a fractured left ring finger after injuring it against the Los Angeles Lakers on Thursday night, the move seems logical for the Cavaliers to pick up Jackson.

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.

Cedric Jackson will get back after it Wednesday after missing some of Tuesday's practice with an injury at East High.

Cedric Jackson sat on idle Tuesday night at East High School.

The trainers kept the former Cleveland State standout out of practice with a left hip flexor injury. For a guy who’s known for being tough, Jackson wasn’t comfortable watching the action from afar.

“I was alright to go, but they sat me out,” Jackson said. “Back in school, Coach Gary Waters always taught us to fight through the pain because sitting out is like a sign of softness. That’s not what I’m about.”

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.

Dea- day trades are always so zany, especially in a league few people ever keep track of them occurring.

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.
