Loren Stokes

Loren Stokes, 27, has played three games for the Erie BayHawks since they acquired him out of the D-League player pool, but each game has been on the road. He’s averaging five points, four assists and shooting 75 percent (6-of-8) from the field.

So the 6-foot, 3-inch combo guard out of Hofstra will make his home debut for the BayHawks (20-9) on Thursday when Erie takes on the New Mexico Thunderbirds (14-18) at Tullio Arena.

Here are some highlights of Stokes playing overseas.

Along with Stokes, Reggie Holmes will make his Erie debut Thursday. Erie snagged the 6-4 guard from Morgan State out of the D-League player pool. Averaging 21.8 points as a senior, Holmes was the 2010 MEAC Player of the Year.

Erie now has full roster of 10 players so if Garrett Temple returns to the team, Erie the BayHawks must cut a player. Temple is in his second 10-day contract with the Milwaukee Bucks.

If Milwaukee wants to keep Temple after the second 10-day contract expires, it must sign him for the rest of the season. He’s played in seven games for the Bucks and is averaging 2.1 points a game.
