The Erie BayHawks continue their massive roster turnover with only a few days until the D-League trade deadline. After losing all-star center Henry Sims to a call-up recently, the BayHawks (20-18) have traded away D.J. Kennedy and Mike Singletary to Rio Grande Valley for guards Mustafa Shakur, Terrel Harris and forward Wesley Witherspoon. Kennedy, a D-League all-star, led Erie with 18.8 points and 5.5 assists per game and was second in rebounding at 8.3 rpg and second in steals at 1.7 spg. Singletary averaging 10 points, 5.7 rebounds and 1.8 assists per game for the BayHawks.
Shakur, a 6-4, 213-pound guard from Arizona, spent the past two seasons in Italy. Rio Grande Valley controlled his rights from his last appearance in the D-League. Shakur is averaging 11.5 points, 3.4 assists and 3.3 rebounds for Sidigas Avellino.
Harris, a 6-5, 190-pound guard from Oklahoma State, is putting up 12.5 points and 7.2 rebounds per game this season. He appeared in 22 games with the Miami Heat last season and played in seven games in Miami this year before being released in January.
Witherspoon is a 6-9, 215-pound forward from Memphis that could fill a need left by Sims’ departure for the BayHawks. He started the season with Austin before being traded to Rio Grande Valley. He averaged 4.7 points per game in 15 appearances with the Vipers.
All three new acquisitions will be in uniform Friday when the BayHawks take on Springfield at 7 p.m.
