Here’s a video done by Erie Times-News photographer Janet B. Kummerer did on Allan Houston, a former star guard of the New York Knicks who is now the general manager of basketball operations for the Erie BayHawks.

An assistant general manager with the Knicks, Houston was in Erie on Monday. The Knicks are the sole NBA affiliate of the BayHawks, who are entering their fourth season in the D-League.

Erie opens the 2011-12 season Nov. 25 at Rio Grande Valley.

The NBA affiliates of the Erie BayHawks – Cleveland Cavaliers and Philadelphia 76ers – made some selections tonight’s NBA Draft, which means one thing.

For now, the D-League looks as if it’s going to have 17 teams for next season. The league has added two franchises in Springfield, Mass., and Portland, Maine, but a current team – the Anaheim Arsenal – is relocating to Springfield.

So our sports department intern, Eric Peddigree, and I took a moment to see what would be the best way to divide the league up. So we printed out a map of the United States and began to go to work on it.

“All I need is a piece of paper,” Eric said.

I provided the pen. It wasn’t that hard. The D-League probably already got it figured out, but just in case it doesn’t, Eric and I wanted to help the league out.
