I don't recall Hamby ever playing the 3 and seems to me she has yet to show much at the 4 either. I hope Riley and VJ come up with somebody at the 4 who is at least close to what they had with Young.

agree. Hamby shows a lot of activity, but not a lot of skill.

I thought NY might give her another look, glad to see someone has, and in SA there is at least a chance she will make the team.

I can see Bulgak at the 4 spot for SA. Alexander & Harrison at center with DeSouza as their 5th post.

Jefferson/Colson
Mcbride/Gwathmey
Currie/Peters/Montgomery
Hamby/Dos Santos/Bulgak
DeSouza/Harrison/Alexander

Plus #1 and #5, not a bad place to be if you are in rebuild mode. DeSouza can mentor the young posts, she and Currie give a veteran presence Jefferson, and McBride are two players with a lot of potential. There are a lot of Small Forwards on this team. I wouldn't be surprised if we don't see a trade or two.

I'll predict Bulgak won't make the cut, and Peters & Colson are unsigned as far as I know. UK, are you suggesting SAN won't even draft a post?

Doesn't look like Colson is getting resigned. The two I'd cut are Gwathmey & Montgomery.

Gwathmey looked pretty hopeless last year. Maybe if they cut her now, fans won't remember that they gave up Jia to get her...though I suspect Jia was asking out.

No Colson sure looks like they're drafting two guards.

Looks a lot like a starting 1, a starting 2, and nine backup frontcourt players in search of some starters.

Alexander showed a lot of improvement last season. I'd guess she's the starting center. Their starting 4 is the big question. Hamby? Dos Santos? Does Hughes still try to mold Hamby into a SF?

PG: Jefferson/K. Mitchell(#1 pick)
SG: McBride/#5 pick
SF: Currie/Peterson/Hamby
PF: Dos Santos/Bulgak
C: Alexander/Harrison/DeSouza

SA can pretty much go in either direction with their picks, it crossed my mind they could pick up two guards, or a guard and a wing. It doesn't have to be the guard and a post that we've been assuming in most mocks.

Both Colson and Peters are reserved so they can't go anywhere else until SA renounces their rights, they could still easily sign on when they return from overseas. PX still has three top players who haven't put pen to paper, and the Liberty still have a unsigned cored player, so I wouldn't read too much into Colson and Peters having not having signed on yet. I think they both had more impact than some players currently on the roster so who knows?

Looking at what they have and where they are trying to go I wouldn't be surprised if Currie was traded. I wouldn't be that surprised if she was traded to the Liberty. It makes sense for NY. I don't know how I feel about it though because I would be nervous to see what we would have to offer to make it happen. I don't think there is a simple one for one trade. Maybe Boyd for Currie? IDK

Colson is an assistant coach at Rice. If I was going to make an offer to New York, I'd offer Currie for Zealous. Zealous would be a good backup for McBride. If Deshields declares it would be an even better trade for SA.

I would do that trade. I like Zellous but it seems like a fair price. I actually didn't throw that out there becuase I thought Currie and Zellous were a little too similar, and thought a younger speedy back up PG might carry more interest for SA, but Zellous for Currie seems very workable.

And if they did draft Deshields they could start her with McBride and Jefferson from day 1 and not have to worry about stepping on Currie's toes or ego in the process.

Looks like SAS will have quite an array of post players in camp and I cannot say I am wildly enthused about any of them but hope VJ and Riley can sort out that mess. I still hope SAS takes a young post with the #5 if they take the best guard available with the #1

The posts in the draft aren't better than what's already there. You take best available both times. Or maybe try to fix their crappy offense.
