The Cleveland Cavaliers will their summer league roster began playing in the Las Vegas Summer League beginning Tuesday. Going into his third season with Cleveland, power forward J.J. Hickson is scheduled to play as is forward Danny Green, who just finished his rookie season with the Cavaliers. 

The Cavaliers 2009 first-round pick, forward Christian Eyenga of the Congo, is also listed on the roster. The 6-foot-5 Eyenga didn’t play last season after deciding to remain overseas and play. 

The team also has some familiar names like Rashard McCants, who starred on the 2004 national championship for North Carolina and rookies Jerome Dyson of Connecticut and Manny Harris of Michigan.

Erie BayHawks coach John Treloar is also working as an assistant for the Cavaliers, who are an NBA affiliate of the BayHawks along with the Toronto Raptors.

 Two things to notice about the schedule is the Cavaliers play against the Miami Heat, who LeBron James chose to sign with instead of the Cavaliers earlier this week, and the Milwaukee Bucks, who have Darnell Jackson, a player Cleveland let go this past season. Jackson is scheduled to play for the Bucks this summer.

The Erie BayHawks have four players from the 2009-10 season who will play in NBA Summer League games in Las Vegas starting today.

Shooting guard Mike Gansey (D-League Select team), point guard Blake Ahearn (Houston Rockets) and centers John Bryant (Milwaukee Bucks) and Mike Sweetney (Washington Wizards) will look to impress NBA teams to give them a chance to make an NBA team in training camp this fall.

Former BayHawk power forward  Alade Aminu will play for the Atlanta Hawks. Danny Green, who played two games for Erie last season, will see action this summer with his team, the Cleveland Cavaliers, while Darnell Jackson, who has played for the BayHawks while with their NBA affiliate, the Cavaliers, is with the Bucks.

BayHawks coach John Treloar is expected to work as an assistant for the Cavaliers.

Mike Brown was the 2009 NBA Coach of the Year and won 272 regular-season games in five seasons with the Clevleand Cavaliers.

Here’s a statement Mike Brown released two days after the Cleveland Cavaliers announced his firing Monday.

“The past 5 years have been an exceptional experience.  I have been very fortunate to lead a group of men who I respect and thoroughly enjoyed coaching on a daily basis.  At the same time, I was able to work alongside a terrific coaching staff and with Danny Ferry and a basketball operations team, all of whom I have a profound respect for. We partnered in creating a culture and a standard that I am, and will continue to be, very proud of.  None of which would be possible without the dedication and support of Dan Gilbert.  I am thankful for the opportunity that he gave to me and my family.  We have a deep appreciation for Northeast Ohio, the Cleveland Cavaliers organization, and the people in this community, and have enjoyed making this our home.” – Mike Brown

He released the statement through the Cavaliers. I haven’t seen first hand how the Cavaliers fire a coach, so this release may be what  they typically do. However, this just seems so weird to me.

In the mean time, this firing will affect the Erie BayHawks as well.

The Cavaliers are an NBA affiliate of the BayHawks as are the Toronto Raptors. Brown opened the door to Erie coach John Treloar and him at practices.

Treloar sat in coaches meeting as well, attended games and offered insight from what he observed.

Now Ferry had something to do with that because he hand picked Treloar to coach the BayHawks, but you still have to have a head coach open to the idea of having a D-League coach there.

Mike Gansey averaged 18.4 poinst and 8.2 boards in 27 games with Erie this season.

4:45 a.m. Wednesday.

That’s what time Erie BayHawks guard Mike Gansey’s first of two plane fights exits the runway en route to China as he will play with fellow D-League players and former NBA stars Robert Horry and Chris Mullin, a member of the 1992 Dream Team that won gold in the 1992 Summer Olympics, in two charity basketball games.

Before he headed out,  Gansey did a lengthy phone interview with me about China, the BayHawks and if his hometown team, the Cleveland Cavaliers, were going to win an NBA title this season.

From nearby Olmsted Falls, Ohio, Gansey, as expected, picked the Cavaliers to win it all. Here’s what else he had to say Tuesday afternoon.

Erie BayHawks rookie Kyle Goldcamp, center, still has a chance to win the team bracket pool, but his coach, John Treloar has the inside track to taking it home. Treloar has Duke and Michigan State making it to the championship game.

John Treloar has the inside track.

Treloar picked Duke and Michigan State to meet in Monday's championship game.

Everyone has an NCAA Tournament bracket pool going. So when the Final Four rolls around, the smoke clears and you begin to see who has the best chance of winning the pool.

For the BayHawks, it’s their head coach – Treloar.

The team bracket commissioner – shooting guard Mike Gansey - is still holding out out hope WVU wins it all so he can brag that he was the only one to pick the Mountaineers to take home the national title. Gansey starred for the Mountaineers when they reached the Elite Eight in 2005.

However, he told before Tuesday’s practice Treloar has Duke and Michigan State meeting in the championship game. True to form, Duke will take on WVU in one national semifinal while Michigan State faces Butler in the other.

Rookie point guard Cedric Jackson has played four games for Erie since returning to the team from his 20-day stint with the Cleveland Cavaliers on an NBA call-up. Jackson shot 1-of-11 from the field in Friday's home loss to the Dakota Wizards.

They’re not broken.

Erie BayHawks rookie point guard Cedric Jackson has severely bruised ribs after taking a hard foul in Friday’s night loss to the Dakota Wizards, Erie coach John Treloar said.

So Jackson will make the trip to Maine with the team today for Sunday’s 5 p.m. game. The question is can Jackson play through the pain. Jackson took a shot to relieve the pain last night, but Treloar said he will not do that for Sunday.

Darnell Jackson had his way inside, but was as winded as a sail boat Thursday night.

Danny Green’s first shot, a corner 3, sailed over the other side of the rim, but his lob pass to Cedric Jackson was as perfect as a 24oo SAT score.

In the end, the Cleveland Cavaliers forwards put in work and were instrumental in Erie’s 114-108 win against the Dakota Wizards tonight.

In 16 games with Idaho, former Erie BayHawk guard Donell Taylor is averaging 23.1 points for the Stampede.


It’s a word former Erie BayHawks guard Donell Taylor uses quite a bit.

As Taylor road a bus from Houston to Dallas earlier Friday, he felt a little better than nice because he had been selected to participate in the D-League All-Star Weekend festivities at the Dallas Convention Center.

Taylor was selected as a replacement in Friday’s Shooting Stars competition.

Lafayette has shown a more complete game in Fort Wayne than he did while with Erie last season.

When Fort Wayne combo guard Oliver Lafayette received his starting lineup introduction, a small buzz of cheers arose Wednesday night at Tullio Arena.

By the time the first half ended, a fan said the following to him:

“Hey Oliver, we still love you, man.”

The way Lafayette shot the ball probably made some Erie fans wish he was still a BayHawk.

Lafayette scored 25 first-half points on a ridiculous 9-of-9 shooting from the field in the 21 minutes, 42 seconds. He was an amazing 5-of-5 from the 3-point line.

Now Lafayette cooled off in the second half, the Mad Ants lost 109-87, but Lafayette showed the BayHawks, their coach John Treloar and their fans he’s a pretty darn good player.

“Coach realize I’m a player and a force to be reckoned with,” said Lafayette, who finished with a season-high 32 points on 12-of-18 shooting. “Coming into this game, I didn’t have any grudges. I just wanted to lead my team to a victory.”

Jackie Manuel is the hustle guy of the late unit Erie may end games with more often this season.

This won’t take long.

What I noticed in Erie’s 102-89 win was the game-ending lineup coach John Treloar went with against the Los Angeles D-Fenders in the final day of the D-League Showcase in Boise, Idaho.

He put rookie point guard Cedric Jackson, forward Ivan Harris, newly acquired guard Mike Gansey, center John Bryant and swingman Jackie Manuel.
