The Erie BayHawks (9-5) are now atop the East Division after winning 110-104 at Springfield (4-10) on Saturday night. They have a half game lead on Maine (10-7).

D.J. Kennedy had 20 points in last night’s win for the BayHawks, who have won seven of their last eight games. The BayHawks’ next two games will be in Reno at the NBA Development League Showcase.

They play the host Bighorns and the Texas Legends.

I sat down with NBA Development League President Dan Reed for an interview before the Erie BayHawks played the Iowa Energy on Friday night at Erie Insurance Arena.

In Part 1, I asked Reed about how the D-League has changed since he joined in 2007. We also talked about the D-League’s groundbreaking hires and future NBA commissioner Adam Silver’s feelings about the league.

Erie BayHawks general manager of basketball operations, Allan Houston, did an interview at halftime of Erie’s 111-88 loss to Austin in the second day of the D-League Showcase in Reno earlier today.

NBATV interviewed Houston, who is also an assistant general manager of the New York Knicks. The Knicks and BayHawks are hybrid partners.

Houston talked about trying to balance his two jobs, the addition of Mike James to the BayHawks and the Knicks.

How do you balance the two and how much time do you dedicate to each one of them? “It’s fun, but it’s a balance. I try to be around the Knicks as much as possible. Be around our team and try to keep understanding the dynamics of the coaching staff and what’s going on, but this is fun because you get to see a lot of players and be familiar with a lot of the players, especially the great talent pool that’s come in so far (to the D-League Showcase). I think the Showcase is great because you see everybody at one time. In a shortened season, it is tough, but you get it done.”

In the last two days, the D-League has announced separate suspensions from the same game.

From yesterday:

NEW YORK – Dakota Wizards guard Maurice Baker has been suspended one game for striking Idaho Stampede forward Cedric Simmons in the shoulder/face, it was announced today by Chris Alpert, Vice President of Basketball Operations and Player Personnel for the NBA Development League.
The incident occurred at the 11:00 minute mark of the fourth quarter on Saturday, Dec. 5, in Boise, Idaho.
Baker will serve his suspension tonight when the Wizards play the Utah Flash in Orem, Utah.

From today:

NEW YORK – Idaho Stampede forward Cedric Simmons has been suspended one game, it was announced today by Chris Alpert, Vice President of Basketball Operations and Player Personnel for the NBA Development League.
Simmons is being suspended for making contact with a game official at the 11:00 mark of the fourth quarter during the game Saturday, Dec. 5 in Boise, ID.
Simmons will serve his suspension on Friday, Dec. 11 when the Stampede travels to play the Los Angeles D-Fenders.

What a shame. Just for the record, Idaho won that game, 133-99.
