The Erie BayHawks is a 2008-09 expansion team in the NBA Development League. The team plays its home games at the Louis J. Tullio Arena in Erie, Pennsylvania.

The "BayHawks" name is a reference to Presque Isle Bay, on which the city of Erie lies. The hawk represents the city's wildlife and naval history, as the greatly respected birds were used by naval expeditions to send important messages. The team's colors of black, red, and gold pay homage the Erie-based Oliver Hazard Perry and to the naval uniforms worn during the American Revolution.


The majority owner of the Erie BayHawks is Steve Demetriou, with Ron Sertz as the team president. Sertz is also a minority owner of the Erie Otters of the Ontario Hockey League.

Logos and uniforms

The official colors of the Erie BayHawks are black, gold, and red. The primary logo depicts a red and black hawk in flight with a gold beak and talons. The hawks is superimposed over a gold basketball and a partial, black ring with "Erie" rounding the top. The "BayHawks" wordmark is centered over the entire design in white, scripted letters.
