The Orlando Magic signed Seth Curry and Peyton Siva to non-guaranteed deals this offseason with the intentions of assigning them both to their D-League affiliate, the Erie BayHawks, for the 2014-2015 season. For that to happen, the BayHawks first had to acquire Curry's rights. It cost them a first round pick in the 2015 D-League Draft and the rights to Scott Suggs, who averaged 18.5 points, 3.9 rebounds and 2.1 assists for them last season, to make it happen.
In the case of Siva, the Detroit Pistons, who drafted him with the 56th pick in the 2013 draft, waived him following the conclusion of last season. The Fort Wayne Mad Ants, therefore, didn't hold his rights.
Once the Magic signed and waived both Siva and Curry, all they had to do was clear waivers to become eligible to join the BayHawks.
On Thursday, the BayHawks announced that they have indeed joined the team after clearing waivers. Kadeem Batts and Drew Crawford will also be on the BayHawks' roster through the affiliate players rule, which allows D-League teams to sign up to four players that were waived from their affiliated NBA team.
The BayHawks will kick their season off on November 14th in a matchup with the Idaho Stampede.
