The Chicago Bulls called up NBA veteran point guard Mike James on Wednesday after he had played just three games with the Erie BayHawks.

It’s the quickest call up for any player the BayHawks have had. Guard Quincy Douby was with Erie for five games in the 2008-09 season. It was Erie’s expansion season.

Here’s James, who played 40 seconds in Chicago’s 14-point win against Washington on Wednesday.

Quincy Douby has made his way back into the NBA after playing five games with the Erie BayHawks.

The Erie BayHawks won’t have combo guard Quincy Douby for the D-League playoffs as their former guard signed with the Toronto Raptors on Monday through 2010.

When I first talked with Douby when he came to Erie a month after being released by the Sacramento Kings, his mindset was to get back in the NBA asap. Can’t blame the guy. The Kings picked the former Rutgers guard in the first round of the 2006 draft.

After five games with the BayHawks in which he averaged 18 points, Douby was back in the NBA. The Raptors signed him to two 10-day contracts before signing him for the remainder of this season and next season.

The BayHawks added him to their playoff roster in hopes he may become available, but understand this. The D-League’s main objective is getting guys into the NBA.

So the league gets its wish when guys like Douby choose to play in it for a stint and use it a springboard to get back into the NBA.

Erie BayHawks guard Quincy Douby signed a second 10-day contract with the Toronto Raptors after being called up by the NBA franchise last month. He's the first BayHawk to receive an NBA call up.

The Toronto Raptors have signed Erie BayHawks guard Quincy Douby to a second 10-day contract Friday, the Toronto Star reported.

No surprise here, but what that means is the BayHawks will be without the combo guard for the remainder of the regular season.

Erie has four games left with the final one being April 11 against Fort Wayne.

Douby, who came to Erie after the Sacramento Kings released him earlier this, averaged 18 points in five games with the BayHawks.

Erie lost four of those games.

A first-round pick of the Kings in the 2006 NBA Draft, Douby joined the Raptors March 24 and has played in only one game for the NBA franchise. He had two points and an assist in five minutes of play.

So with a roster void, the BayHawks may opt to acquire someone out of the D-League player pool. Is it too late in the year to bring someone new into the Erie fold as it battles to earn a spot in the upcoming playoffs?

We’ll find out.

After being released by the Sacramento Kings last month, combo guard Quincy Douby made his way to Erie and played only five games with the BayHawks before getting an NBA call up from the Toronto Raptors on Tuesday.

It’s the NBA’s league.

So the NBA can dictate action that takes place in the D-League. The Erie BayHawks experienced that in their relationship with combo guard Quincy Douby.

Unlike the other players Erie coach John Treloar has brought in during the season like  Mike Cook, Darian Townes and Tony Bethel, he didn’t set out to get Douby.

But when the Douby entered the D-League player pool after being released by the Sacramento Kings last month, there was seemingly some pressure for a D-League team to pick him up.

“When you have the opportunity to get a player of an NBA-talent level, the league doesn’t demand that you do it, but they encourage it very strongly,” Treloar said. “When Quincy Douby signs that contract with the D-League? I didn’t recruit Quincy Douby to sign a contract with the D-League. The D-League recruited him.”

So when the BayHawks got him on March 11, it threw off the rotation of the team. Not blaming Douby for that, but the reality is his presence took away minutes from other players and altered team chemistry.

I remember asking Erie combo guard Maureece Rice about it when Douby arrived in Erie. The first thing Rice said was, “It’s late the season.”

He didn’t look down upon the decision and welcomed Douby in, but you could tell he knew this was going to affect the team in some form.

Fair or unfair, that’s the nature of the D-League.

OK. It’s unfair.

With only six games remaining in their regular season, combo guard Maureece Rice (with ball) and the Erie BayHawks (23-21) trail the Central Division-leading Iowa Energy (25-17) by three games.

With only one D-League game played Tuesday night, the Erie BayHawks are still ninth in the playoff chase. Only eight teams make the playoffs.

However, the outcome of Tuesday’s game between the Bakersfield Jam and Iowa Energy has bearing on Erie’s playoff hopes.
