If the Lynx don't bring back McCarville, I'd say her W career is done. Hasn't she made it clear she only wants to play in Minnesota? If she did want to play, who else would pursue her? Washington? Atlanta?

Lmao. Are people now whining about where players are signing as free agents? That is beyond pathetic.

Pierson is still a good player to sign for Minny.

No they wouldn't. They'd sign with Minnesota. It's extremely rare to win back to back championships. Plus, the Lynx win every 2nd year. This is going to be their year easily, if they stay healthy. And chasing a championship with the Mystics is a complete joke. Lol. Adding EDD isn't going to propel them into being a contender. A contender for the playoffs yes, but not for a championship. Not even if they do in fact steal away Kristi Toliver.


The Lynx always choke in the playoffs—they only win they are they so much better than every team in the WNBA that it's impossible for them to lose. The Sparks finally caught up to being as good as the Lynx, so, as I predicted last year but sadly didn't bet on, the Lynx choked against them in the Finals despite having home court advantage. I'd be shocked anybody other than the Sparks win the title, except for the Mystics, the rest of this decade.

I ran this Turkish article about Brunson I found through a teanslator. It looks like she just signed up with a club in Turkey.

WNBA Legend Rebekkah Brunson in Turkey
US national player Rebekkah Brunson, one of the legendary players of the American National Women's Basketball League WNBA, has agreed with MBK Dogus Hospital on Women's Basketball League teams until the end of the season.

WNBA Legend Rebekkah Brunson in Turkey

Rebekkah Brunson, who played in the long and shy Minnesota Lynx team of USA born in 1981, who is shown among the legendary players of WNBA of American National Women's Basketball League, has agreed with MBK Dogus Hospital of Bilyoner.com Women's Basketball League until the end of the season.


Information about Rebekkah Brunson;

In the 2004 WNBA drafts, Sacramento Monarchs lived in the 1st round, ranked 1st in the 10th, experienced experienced player, Monarchs wearing the formate for 5 years, and 1 championship lived. The Washington native, who transferred to another WNBA team Minnesota Lynx in 2010, rode with the team in 2011, 2013 and 2015. Rebekkah Brunson, who has also won three times in his career to honor the WNBA All-Star, also found himself on the WNBA defense team in 2011.
 
Besides the successes and stable career in WNBA, Dinamo Moscow, Dinamo Kursk, ZVVZ USK Prague, Cras Basket Taranto, Ros Casares Valencia and Nadezhda Orenburg have won numerous championships in European women's basketball teams and have achieved significant achievements in EuroLeague and EuroCup, while WNBA Continued to struggle in the Middle East, attracted great interest by the world press and aroused wide repercussions.
 
MBC Dogus Hospital Club President Mehmet Isikay, who talked about the transfer, "the need to make a number of changes in the staff on the result of the evaluation we made with our technical team, and we strengthened the cadre with Rebekkah Brunson. Rebekkah Brunson is a very high-level player that many Turkish teams have been involved in before and has made important initiatives to add to his squad. He has won numerous championships and achievements in both the United States and Europe. It is very important for both the quality of the league and for the Turkish basketball that it will be worn in Turkey. In this sense we are very happy and excited to see him among us, "he said.
 
Mehmet Işıkay, who also informed the team about the latest situation, "As everyone knows, our team's playmaker Jamierra Faulkner has informed us that he wants to leave us for family reasons. We tried very hard to keep him here, but we believed his team could not make a long term contribution to morale motivation and we distinguished our ways. After this point, the team needed some time to recover and needed reinforcements, and we made a significant boost with Rebekkah Brunson. If we do not see it, we can do a few more reinforcements. As MBK Dogus Hospital, we are a team with long-term goals and we want to continue our targets every year by continuing our struggle in a sustainable manner at Bilyoner.com Women's Basketball League. We want to continue our struggle in the finest leagues in the league and to continue to be a team that everyone is attracted to. Our confidence in our technical team and our players is endless at this point. "



Sounds like Brunson is taking the place of Faulkner, who has left the team for family reasons.

Funny because Faulkner almost immediately went right to CCC Polkowice after she left Turkey. She must have family in Poland Wink

Roster Review | Plenette Pierson

http://lynx.wnba.com/news/roster-review-plenette-pierson/?sf56024457=1


Quote:
Offseason Plans

Pierson is spending her offseason playing overseas for the KB Stars in South Korea.

In 28 games this offseason, she has averaged 14.1 points, 7.4 rebounds, 1.8 assists, 1.1 steals and 1.1 blocks in 27.8 minutes per game. Pierson is shooting 46.7 percent from the field and 68.4 percent from the free-throw line.



Quote:
Role For 2017

More a majority of her career, especially in the last five or six seasons in the WNBA, Pierson has played key minutes for each of her teams.

Expect Pierson to continue to play a key role for the Lynx as they hope to once again make a deep run in 2017.

Pierson is a perfect signing for the Lynx. She fits the physical style they play and she won't have to play heavy minutes, which is probably where she should be at this stage of her career. Her basketball IQ is very high as well. Be prepared for her to struggle as a defender in space. But with Fowles' presence that's less of a concern than it would be on other teams. And she will still defend close to the basket with physicality and be a factor on help defense as long as she doesn't have to cover too great a distance to do it. And she has a winner's mentality. Offensively she can still score inside or out, which is definitely a solid bench weapon.

Ok, my bad. They wished her luck in Minnesota and she didn't argue so I just assumed.
Clarification from Rachel:

Quote:
I never actually said I'm heading back to Minny! In talks at the moment


Apologies, Lynx fans.
It seems she is actually headed east this year.

If Jarry is a SF, plays hard, and can shoot a 3 this seems like the kind of something for nothing move Laimbeer (and/or Liberty managemnet) would make in a heart beat.

Yeah, you can have one of the bundle of players who made me think during the Olympics, "How the hell did Rebecca Allen not make this Australian squad?" Wink

(in fairness, Jarry would hardly have been the first cut to make room for Allen, but still...)

Jarry only played one season 4 years ago. I'm thinking they've probably moved on from her, but I'm not sure of the status of her rights. I think Liston may have gotten more minutes than Jarry, and they have moved on from Liston, so bringing back Jarry seems unlikely to me.

With Pierson, the Lynx will have 11, depending on what's going on with Cruz. She could be another half season player if they keep her.

11 + deferred Fagbenle (not signed yet) + 3 draft picks = 15

She didn't show much 4 years ago when she last played in the wnba and hasn't shown much since.

Fowles wins a championship in China. Now she has a nice chunk of time to rest up.
