BayHawks Set Toronto Free Agent Tryouts
ERIE – The Erie BayHawks, NBA Development League affiliates of the Toronto Raptors, have set Toronto free agent tryouts for October 31 and November 1, at the Kerr Hall Gymnasium on the campus of Ryerson University, 350 Victoria Street, Toronto.
Players interested in participating in the free agent tryout can get registration forms online at ErieBayhawks.com. A registration fee of $175 (U.S. Funds), in the form of a money order or cashier’s check payable to the Erie BayHawks must accompany the completed forms and be received by October 28, 2009. For all registrations received after October 28 and at the first day of tryouts the fee will be $200 (U. S. Funds).
“We are excited about our new affiliation with the Raptors,” said BayHawks head coach John Treloar. “With this being the only NBA Development League tryout held in Canada this season, we expect a strong turnout.”
Space for the tryouts is limited, interested participants should register early to guarantee their place. Hopefuls should arrive prepared to participate in team drills, individual skills work and scrimmages. BayHawks coaches and staffers will be on hand for player evaluations.

NBA Development League
The NBA Development League, founded in 2001, is the NBA’s official minor league and featured 16 teams with direct affiliations to NBA teams during the 2008-09 season. This Fall, two new NBA D-League teams will begin play in Portland, Maine and Springfield, Mass.-- the birthplace of basketball. Eighty-four former NBA Development League players were on 2008-09 NBA end-of-season rosters, amounting to almost 20 percent of NBA players, and the league continues to develop coaches, referees, and front office staff for the NBA and its teams. In fostering the league’s connection to the community, its teams, players and staff promote health and wellness, support local needs and interests, and assist in educational development through NBA D-League Cares programs. The NBA D-League also advances the game of basketball as the research and development arm of the NBA. Throughout the season fans can watch all NBA D-League games on NBA Futurecast, the free live Web-streaming initiative found at nba.com/futurecast.
Hope to see come Canadians from the Senior Mens Team trying out like Jermaine Anderson, Olu Famutimi, Jermaine Bucknor, and others Toronto and the rest of Canada is starting to produce some very good bball players and I for one would love to see some Canadians on some DLeague teams.
