Then again, Jackson has NBA talent and should on an NBA roster already. Last season, he got NBA call ups from three different teams including the Cavs, who are an NBA affiliate of the BayHawks.

The Erie BayHawks have four players from the 2009-10 season who will play in NBA Summer League games in Las Vegas starting today.

Shooting guard Mike Gansey (D-League Select team), point guard Blake Ahearn (Houston Rockets) and centers John Bryant (Milwaukee Bucks) and Mike Sweetney (Washington Wizards) will look to impress NBA teams to give them a chance to make an NBA team in training camp this fall.

Former BayHawk power forward  Alade Aminu will play for the Atlanta Hawks. Danny Green, who played two games for Erie last season, will see action this summer with his team, the Cleveland Cavaliers, while Darnell Jackson, who has played for the BayHawks while with their NBA affiliate, the Cavaliers, is with the Bucks.

BayHawks coach John Treloar is expected to work as an assistant for the Cavaliers.
