Swish Appeal put out the rumor that Fitzgerald is the one cut. Copper might have jumped the gun and assumed she made it because the roster was at 12.
Cruel world if true!

Yeah,that would be ....However,Feyona did respond to Copper with a"'thanks Kah"

Hopefully the conflicting reports about the roster cuts are cleared up before the season begins.

It's kinda late in the process to be making any changes. That was dog of Pokey. I thought she loved her PG's. Oh course, maybe the GM thought it would be a good idea.

Now if Fred & Bibb pick up Feyonda off waivers Chong could be in trouble. Feyonda played great in that pre=season game last saturday.

I would rate Chong higher. Fitzgerald is a rookie just like Chong so why would Dallas assume Fitz is better than what they've already seen in Chong?

Your ideas lately seem to involve breaking up the Fab Five. What have you got against the Fab Five? Let's keep them together at least until next year when Cambage and a 2018 first rounder joins the team.

My ideas are based off who can make this team better. The FAB 5 thing is cute and fun and history breaking and all but they all wont make this team better . I would not rate chong higher , not discrediting her neither but Fitzgerald stood out to me saturday night . And if not chong then Air Ball free throws evelyn should be next . I want a Win Now team sorry im not content with just being an average team

Now that i recollect out of the 5 only 2 will make an impact this season . So yeah maybe your right im not all that excited about 5 new players coming to a struggling team per history . Cann the Fab 5 and focus on the Future 2

Chicago will not pick her up. That would make too much sense and have Chicago winning more games. Chicago wants to sit at the Wilson roulette table.

One issue, especially with a rookie, is coming into a new team just before the season starts and trying to pick up the system. The player who has been there has a significant advantage and can help the team more in her limited minutes because she'll know where she's supposed to be on the floor.

And I can tell you from a coaching standpoint that one of the most overlooked and underappreciated aspects of any player's game is knowing where to be on the court and getting there at the right time.

So from that perspective, Fitzgerald would have to be considerably better than Chong for the move to make sense -- and I don't see that being the case.

Fever must like how Wheeler is progressing, with not as many responsibilities as last year.


Any interest in Hamson? Indy was last in the league in blocked shots, but that's her forte. Teammates usually love an unselfish offensive player, who makes them look good on D too.

She was signed with the Fever. Was the question why not suspend her instead?
I think the injury was under the Fever watch, so I'm thinking they bought her out and then waived her, but I didn't read any press releases. The Fever probably decided they weren't interested in Lucas as a RFA next year.

I couldn't get the videos to run, but one is an interview and the other is her speaking to the crowd.

I believe the waived an injured Pohlen last year and now she is back. Might do the same with Lucas.
