BayHawks Waive Three to Set Roster
Erie, Pennsylvania, Wednesday, November 17 - The Erie BayHawks set their 10-man roster today in preparation for the start of the season by waiving three players: Maureece Rice, David Gomez and Charlie Parker.
Rice is being released due to injury, giving the BayHawks the first right of refusal to sign him upon getting a clean bill of health.
The BayHawks opening night roster currently stands at 11 players, 10 permanent roster spots and one NBA player on assignment (Solomon Alabi from the Toronto Raptors). NBA D-League teams are permitted to carry only 10 players with D-League contracts, however, are allowed to expand rosters to a maximum of 12 active players to allow for NBA assignments. Each NBA affiliate can assign up to two players at any given time.
The BayHawks tip-off the season with back-to-back games this Friday and Saturday versus the Springfield Armor at 7pm at the Tullio Arena. It marks the first time in franchise history that Erie opens the season at home.
Tickets still remain for opening weekend and can be purchased by contacting the BayHawks at 790-5600, in person at the Tullio Arena box office or online at ticketmaster.com.
