D-League.com provided a breakdown of Thursday’s draft. Here are the comments related to the Erie BayHawks.

3rd-round Sleeper – Mychel Thompson (7th in the 3rd to Erie, 38th overall)

In his senior year at Pepperdine, Thompson scored almost 15 points a game, pulling down 5.9 rebounds while he was at it. He’s also from great pedigree: Thompson’s dad, Mychal, was selected first overall in the 1978 NBA Draft and went on to have a 12-year career in the NBA. He’s now a radio color commentator with the Los Angeles Lakers.

Best pick in 6th round – Adrian Bowie (10th pick in the 6th round to Erie; 89th overall)

Bowie did whatever Maryland needed from him in his senior season in 2010-11, scoring 8.8 points a game to go along with 3.5 assists and three rebounds a game. He also shot .466 from the floor – the highest average of his career. He’s shown that he can shine, but he’ll now have to do it on a consistent basis.

The BayHawks begin training camp Nov. 10. in Erie.
