The Erie BayHawks have a temporary replacement for 7-footer Chris Daniels.

Earlier today, the D-League announced the New York Knicks have sent down 7-footer Jerome Jordan to play for the BayHawks. Jordan, who is in his rookie season with the Knicks after being taken in the second round (44th overall) of the 2010 NBA Draft by the Milwaukee Bucks.

The Knicks got Jordan in a trade with the Bucks for cash considerations. Out of Tulsa, Jordan is averaging 1.3 points and 1.3 rebounds in six games with the Knicks. He’s expected to practice with the BayHawks on Wednesday before they play at Maine on Friday and Sunday.

As a senior in college, Jordan averaged 15.4 points, 9.1 rebounds and 2.34 blocks in 35 games. Now if he can get close to those numbers in the D-League, that would be around Daniels provided the BayHawks.

Daniels averaged 16.8 points, 8.6 rebounds and 2.14 blocks in 14 games for Erie before leaving the team Monday to go play in South Korea.

Remember when I showed you the dunk John Wall smashed on Jerry Stackhouse this summer? If you didn’t, just do a search on the blog.

The young fella can ball.

So I wasn’t surprised he did his thing in leading No. 5 Kentucky to a 68-66 win Saturday against No. 10 North Carolina at Rupp Arena.

Early in the game, he crossed over Larry Drew II in the open court for a two-handed dunk and then followed that up with a reverse lay up and a perfect lob pass to Patrick Patterson for a two-handed cram to help the Wildcats build a 19-point first-half lead.

Then he overcame a leg injury and hit two free throws with four seconds left to secure the win and stem off a great North Carolina comeback. Wall finished with 16 points.

Again, the young fella can ball.

Just continue the countdown for him declaring himself for the 2010 NBA Draft. He’s 6-4, got crazy handles, swagger and athleticism, can knock down the 3 and is only going to get better defensively.

Yep, John Wall is definitely in the building.
