Orlando Magic Executives Discuss New Partnership With Erie BayHawks

Russ Isabella-USA TODAY Sports

Members of the Orlando Magic recently discussed the benefits of forming a single affiliation with the Erie BayHawks.

Upon announcing their newly formed NBA D-League hybrid affiliation with the Erie BayHawks, members of the Orlando Magic staff, such as General Manager Rob Hennigan, head coach Jacque Vaughn, and CEO Alex Martins, discussed the evident benefits.

It should be noted that the Magic appear committed to ensuring the BayHawks are an extension of the NBA franchise. Though they aren't that close to geographical proximity, just the new pairing itself is promising, because it shows dedication to such a relationship from Orlando. With so many NBA and D-League teams forming one-to-one affiliations, there are obviously fewer minor league franchises to pair up with. Better to take advantage now.

What's more, a source tells RidiculousUpside.com that the D-League has no immediate plans to expand into the southeast, or i.e. closer to Orlando.
