Mike James Will Begin NBA Comeback With D-League's Erie BayHawks

Mike James started 50 games for the Washington Wizards during the 2008-09 season, but the veteran guard hasn't been quite as active on the NBA circuit for the past few seasons. He'll look to get back on track starting this week, however, as he joins the Erie BayHawks.

The BayHawks, owned by the New York Knicks, claimed James before he cleared waivers on Wednesday afternoon. He'll join a team with several NBA prospects the Knicks are likely interested in with Devin Green and D.J. Kennedy on the wings and Chris Daniels manning the middle after being cut by the Lakers in training camp.

James, 36, has posted averages of 10.5 points and 3.6 assists thus far in his NBA career, but he hasn't played in the big leagues since appearing in four games for Washington during the 2009-10 season. He spent 12 games in Turkey last season with Aliaga Petkim, but has apparently decided to join the D-League to work toward an NBA comeback this year instead of chasing another paycheck in Europe.
