LOOKING FORWARD: In Pennsylvania, John Dudley notes the Knicks currently are in the "third year of an affiliation agreement" with the Erie BayHawks. BayHawks Majority Owner Steve Demetriou in a statement said that the franchise has been "in contact with potential affiliates." He called the addition of the White Plains franchise "very positive news for our league." Demetriou previously said that the BayHawks would "seek a hybrid affiliation in which the NBA team pays for and controls basketball operations while local ownership maintains primary responsibility for business operations" (ERIE TIMES-NEWS, 3/11).
FEELING MINNESOTA: In Minneapolis, Sid Hartman notes the T'Wolves "might have their own farm team in the near future." T'Wolves President of Basketball Operations Flip Saunders said he and Owner Glen Taylor are "talking about the ability to buy maybe a hybrid-type team and have our own NBDL team where we can put our own coaches in there, our own system, and we can send guys up and down" (Minneapolis STAR TRIBUNE, 3/9).
