Based on this season so far, it didn't help them much. Nor did getting No. 5.


Wilson is light years ahead of Plum, and will bring great size to the Power Forward position.

Knowing San Antonio if they got Wilson they will still finish next season lower than whale shit! Laughing

Would probably be playing more center in San Antonio, where Erika is decrepit and Vickie Johnson appears to have very little use for Kayla Alexander. This roster is still very much in flux and could be very different by the time Wilson theoretically arrives, but I wouldn't bank on her being a 4.

Having her start at center will make them worse than this season imo

I think this is the end of De Souza. Kayla has looked good at times this season, and I believe would be even better with Wilson as a strong 4. I actually believe they will make the playoffs next season if they get Wilson.

I forgot about Katelynn Flaherty, maybe she will have a 1st round draft pick performance this season, if not I think she'll go in the top 6 of the 2nd round.

For scouting the Russian, Vadeeva.
I peeked in and saw her drawing doubles and finding an open teammate pretty well.

Mitchell, Harper look to represent Buckeyes on national team

http://www.dispatch.com/sports/20170728/womens-basketball--mitchell-harper-look-to-represent-buckeyes-on-national-team

Quote:
A blend of high stress and high elevation will await players invited to training camp for the U.S. women’s basketball national team for players 23 or younger in Colorado Springs, Colorado.


Quote:
Mitchell, twice the Big Ten’s player of the year in her first three seasons at Ohio State, has some experience with national-team training camps — she was a surprise cut from the U16 team in 2011


Quote:
The training camp features many of the nation’s top women’s college basketball players, including Associated Press first-team All-America selections A’ja Wilson of South Carolina and Katie Lou Samuelson and Napheesha Collier of UConn, second-team selections Gabby Williams of UConn and Mitchell, and third-team selections Lexie Brown of Duke and Victoria Vivians of Mississippi State.


Quote:
After Ohio State lost to Notre Dame in an NCAA Tournament regional semifinal in March, Mitchell said she would work to become “the most versatile player ever.” She has spent time playing off the ball this summer.


Quote:
In addition to practicing with her teammates, Mitchell regularly sharpens her skills at pickup games throughout Columbus. She has built a network of basketball contacts locally — if there’s a pickup game coming together, she’ll get an invite.

Best part of this trade for the Dream - Dream will not be tempted to draft Russell.

If We end up with the 5th pick ill boycott outside the draft that night..We finish the tied for 8th but lose via tie breaker hopefully too seattle in which we've been massacred by twice. End up.with #1 or #2 bring Liz Camb*tch into the fold. If we get #1 Glory can go Well take Aja. if #2-4 Im looking for DD anyone else should be considered trade bait. Russell could be a serviceable backup. I dont think Gabby or Kelsey Mitchell will blow through the league as most predict.

"Hate" is too strong of a word. Intense disappointment may be more appropriate. I lost the fun in this unless it was fun to upset me.

I think the Lynx could afford to gamble on this Vadeeva making waves overseas. Thibault and Agler both being foreign player specialists might beat the Lynx to it.

If the Lynx are seeing promise in Jones, I hope they draft big in this class of forwards. It'll be somewhat disappointing if the best available is a guard, although I would be somewhat intrigued by Kia Nurse at #12.

OK

Minn #12 Vadeeva (That works for me I could see Agler taking her at 11 as well)

How do you feel about Vivians? Atkins? or S. Thomas? IMO Minn needs a wing as much as a post I think Minn could pull a post in Free agency. I'm also think Greenwell and Duke will have a big season moving her to borderline 1st round. If Nared is still on board i think she would be a good fit in Minn but with Deshields gone even with the 4 freshman I think Nared has a big statistical season moving her to mid/late first round.

Better draft than this year ... I see Wilson and Mitchell as solid picks with all-WNBA potential.

DeShields is a head case, but you never know.

Williams, Russell, Turner and Billings could all be starters in the league, and are likely at worst rotation players (though Russell could be a bust).

As usual, though, the dropoff occurs just past midway in round one (just like the NBA).

I think Williams can be a All WNBA type player and would project as the best player on Indy, Chicago, or San Antonio. I also think She can defend a number of WNBA post player, with Fowles and Griner being her only match up problems.

I really like Gabby Williams, but the success rate of 5-11 post players in the WNBA is not all that high. If she can develop a three-point shot, she could be a very valuable wing, and if not, an undersized four who can cause matchup problems, but hard to see her as a post.

I have Vadeeva going to LA or MN also. Both teams tend to be either overstocked with returning players or limited by salary cap. You can stash Vadeeva overseas until you need her. It will also give Maria time to develop physically. She is already smart and skilled beyond her years. What Vadeeva needs to do is work on her body. I remember during Dolson's first two years at UConn, she didn't look like any kind of pro player. So, it's possible to make yourself a significantly better athlete. Vadeeva just turned 19 two weeks ago, so she's got plenty of time to work and improve if she's motivated.

I don't think SA should put all their eggs in the Wilson basket. Besides, not many teams win the lottery consecutively. It rarely happens. For their sake, hopefully they are more prepared. But, Williams or DeShields wouldn't be bad consolation prizes.

Chicago could end up with say DeShields and maybe Mitchell or Billings. So not a bad trade for them.

Everyone on this board must hate the Chicago Sky. So many of you having us use our pick on DeShields. I want nothing to do with her.

I would love to get Mitchell and a post (I like Billings a lot, btw).

Since you all mentioned Vadeeva, when is Cecilia Zandalasini eligible to declare? She's on my radar as well. She's a young, talented player from a European team with very limited success, meaning she'll be more available regularly.

Already been and gone, and therefore a WNBA free agent. Italy have been just as successful as Russia in recent years, though (i.e. not very).

Everyone on this board does hate the Sky except for the diehard Sky fans. Diehard fans love the Sky, period. They don't jump ship when their favorite player farts her way out of town.

I'm surprised more @WNBA teams aren't here for the training camp. It's one cost to see 35 of best college players

which teams are there?

I've thought Billings was somewhat similar to Akhator. Athletic but pretty raw. Her shooting is mostly from 4 feet and in unless she has worked to extend it...and at that distance the % aren't very good. I would also be surprised if she is actually 6'4" tall. She does have a LOT of hustle, kinda like a GloJo type player. I'll be interested to see how she does this year in the P12. If she shows well, she could certainly work her way up the draft order.

Call me a homer, but I think Billings is closer to GloJo than Ahkator. She's still pretty raw, but she's athletic and the footwork is there. This could be a big year for her. Idk about 6'4 either...

I'm not a college game expert.

I saw Billing a couple times last year and thought she looked great. I thought she was fast and even if not 6' 4" was legit PF in the W size. GloJo seems like a decent comp. I think if she goes to a team with some strong scorers she'll be a nice fit. I could see her succeeding in PX or Atl, or off the bench in LA or Minn, Chicago could be interesting alongside Dolson, sort of doing what Boyette was supposed to do as a rebounder and rim protector but from the PF spot instead of how Imani pushed Dolson to the PF spot.

I really like Gabby Williams, but the success rate of 5-11 post players in the WNBA is not all that high. If she can develop a three-point shot, she could be a very valuable wing, and if not, an undersized four who can cause matchup problems, but hard to see her as a post.


She's on same team with Wilson at U23 so one would assume she's playing the 4 at a minimum, not the 5.

I'd just note that Billings team got smoked 93-75 in that game and she was outscored by two opposing bigs (Shepard and Stevens).

Not sure where Gabby is playing but it did look like they used her to guard the low post, I noticed she wasn't in the review they did so maybe she got a little lost out there. Collier had a big game and looks like a top 3 pick in 2018 or 2019.
Billings isn't really a rim protector so i'm not sure she would be a good pick up for the sky if that's what they are looking for, Stevens looks like a bigger version of Dewanna Bonner and even at 6'6 could be more of a small forward then Delle Donne, Stewart, or Jones. Should Stevens declare for 2018, I think she would challenge Wilson for the top pick if a team at the top doesn't need a true big.

Billings is bigger and more athletic than Akator. She really impressed me in that February UCLA win over Stanford when she totally outplayed Erica McCall. I say this as someone who went in as a McCall fan. People should remember that Erica is pretty athletic herself. I was looking forward to a competitive match-up, but it really wasn't. McCall had trouble shooting over Billings and ended up with 14 pts on 4-14 shooting. Erica did get 12 boards, but she had no blocks and fouled out. Billings put up 21 pts (6-12), 15 rebounds, and 4 blocks. It's only one outing, but it was an impressive performance from Monique in a big game, matched-up against a quality player.

I thought the teams were fairly balanced but that if I had to pick a team it was team 2. Great height with McCowan, Stevens and Shepard, and a true point guard in Canada.

And it's turned out that team two has smoked it's first two opponents.

Wilson's team lacks height and a pg, unless you consider Mitchell a true pg.

After the round robin, Team 1 (Billings, Brown, Fluker, McCarty, Nared, Samuelson, Slocum, Vivians, White) is the only team without a win, with the other three teams tied at 2-1 each. In the semifinals, Team 1 plays Team 3 (which badly beat previously unbeaten Team 2 this afternoon), while Teams 2 and 4 face off in the other.

The title game and bronze medal game will be streamed live Friday morning.

I think Z can be a small forward once she hits the pros, and not just occasionally play there like EDD.

Typical USA: bad three-point shooting, too many turnovers, way too athletic for whoever they're playing.

Sabrina Ionescu and Brittany McPhee both looked good in the box score. McPhee is an interesting player -- up to this point, she has raised her game only when the competition has forced her to, but she has raised her game. She wasn't nearly as good at Stanford as a freshman as she is now, and it's possible she'll keep on improving at the pro level.

Now whether that means she'll be able to start in the WNBA at some point is another question, but she could turn into an Allie Quigley/Anna DeForge kind of player who takes until her mid-20s to make an impact.

Got Kalani Brown taken down and Tearica McCowan to replace her. She tore up to #4 in user drafts.
