Former BayHawk forward, Taj McCullough (headband) has a multitude of offensive skills.

The D-League is having a pre-draft camp this weekend in Los Angeles that’s gathering up some news on the league web site.

The Erie BayHawks had two players invited to the 25-player elite camp in combo guard Maureece Rice and small forward Ivan Harris. In addition, former BayHawk forward Taj McCullough was also invited.

McCullough played most of the season for Fort Wayne last season after Erie released him.

Erie assistant Ben McDonald, who is from Long Beach, Calif., was scheduled to scout the three-day camp as well.

With NBA scouts in attendance, this should open up some doors for guys to get serious NBA looks in the upcoming summer league next month in Las Vegas.

Forward Ivan Harris and the Erie BayHawks have earned a spot in the D-League playoffs, but who will they play in the first-round? With a 2-0 record against Erie, Colorado may chose to play the BayHawks.

The D-League playoffs is no longer a lump of clay.

It has finally taken shape, sort of. We won’t know the pairings until Sunday evening, but this is what we do know.

1. The divisional winners: Colorado (Southwest), Utah (West), Iowa (Central).

2. Austin is the fourth seed and will host a first-round playoff game.

3. Defending D-League champion Idaho, Dakota, Erie and Bakersfield are the remaining wild-card teams available for the divisional winners to pick to play in the first round.

4. Colorado and Austin are on one side of the bracket while Utah and Iowa are on the other side.

The question is which divisional winner will pick Erie or will all three pass on the BayHawks, thus forcing Austin to play them?

Whoever faces Erie in the playoffs better have an serious plan for how to defend Maureece Rice. He's averaging 26.2 points in his last 10 games and has scored a combined 73 points in his last two games.

The D-League playoff format is going to make things very interesting.

For those who don’t know, the three divisional winners will have home-court advantage for their first round games.

The twist to all this is they also get to pick their first-round opponent out of the four lowest wild-card teams. The divisional champion with the best record will pick first, followed by the champions with the second and third best records, respectively.

Now Erie (26-23) is among those final four wild-card teams along with Dakota (27-23) and Bakersfield (26-24). The fourth team will be determined after Saturday’s games.

So which divisional winner will pick Erie?
