Signing Bone & keeping Lavender doesn't make sense. One or the other.

Lavender is a 4. Bone brings toughness and a more block presence.

1. Re-sign Alana Beard


The Sparks signed her in Feb along with most of the rest of the team. If it was only a one year deal, she must have been contemplating retirement.

I guess the Sparks don't need instant offense.

I believe PHX still owns her rights (but who knows). If they do, what do you trade, instant offense?

I'm sure Stocks has given Agler the scoop on her.

8. Jenna O'Hea


You slipped her onto the training camp roster without it being one of your first steps. Are you bringing her in? Most people have moved on from her but you and zune are the holdouts.

Jenna O'Hea is back into the graces of the Opals and is trying to get a spot for next year. Part of it is because they finally have a coach that understands that its good for aussies to play in the WNBA and doesnt shut them out for it.
So if the other aussies are coming over then i would see that happening for her aswell and i think the Sparks could really use her.
She is friends with Parker and Agler is already familiar with her so there is certainly a chance

It looks like a position that the Sparks needed filled, so it would be hard to call it a negative. Question should be is it a negative for Atlanta, who lost her.

Early in free agency

Gray/RWilliams
Sims/Dabovic
Beard(unsigned)/Carson/Wiese
NOgwumike/Lavender/#11
Parker/Tolo(unsigned)

Other possibilities
Samuelson
Dubljevic(unsigned)
Tiffany Jackson-Jones(unsigned)
Sandrine Gruda(unsigned)

Between Sims and Gray, a “true PG” backup isn’t really needed. Other guards can do light minutes in those odd times when both Gray and Sims are both on the bench.

Samuelson not likely to make it unless she beats out Wiese or guards are dealt.

Dabovic was signed to be on the roster.

Beard likely to be signed (although what is the holdup?)

No word on Tolo. Urban legend or a real possibility?

Seems likely #11 will be a post (unless guards are dealt) or the pick traded.

#11 perfect for Vadeeva?


Max: Parker, Ogwumike, Beard, Sims
Expensive: Lavender, Carson, RWilliams
Cheap: Gray, Dabovic, Wiese, Tolo(?), #11

Again!?! I can see Candace pounding the hardwood once more in sheer frustration. I love players who do all the dirty work inside, and Marianna is quite a scrapper. I hope she gets herself together again. Marianna probably doesn't deserve this title, but we need a Big Bad Syl stopper.

Fighting with Dabovic for the backup minutes to Gray and Sims at the guard spots. Beard playing mostly the three with Carson, sliding over when they need bigger D. Riquna Williams available as all hell.

Maybe we are gonna hear about trades as I don't think Agler is a fan of Williams or Weise or even some bigs that didn't play.

Every time I think I've seen Cappie's worst hair day, I see a new picture.

Does this put the Sparks anywhere near the fabled LA cap?

They would have to be under the cap to add her, I believe. But I can't see them keeping more than 11 unless they can get rid of Williams and her max contract. According to Megdal, Carson has close to one too.

Not that it matters. They were deep in the post last year, but it didn't keep Agler from leaving his starters out there to pick up three or four first half fouls in the finals.

Ehh, not the big splash I was hoping for. If Cappie can accept a sparkplug role off the bench, similar to a Lou Williams for the Clippers, I am good with that. I don't want her starting over Sims. Yeah, with this move Williams has got to be gone. We already have Gray, Sims, Pondexter, Dabovic, and Beard. They probably keep Wiese too as she is on a cheaper contract. Just don't play Dabovic and Wiese together, their defense is atrocious.

Even though Agler probably won't play her, we need another big to help Parker, Ogwumike, and Lavender (and don't say Diarra!)

Might have trouble finding someone trading for that contract+injury history. She didn't exactly have a bounce back 2017.

Your comment led to me clicking on the link and I wasn't disappointed! OMFG! That is some kind of weird woven welcome mat she's got perched up there, with the weaving not finished, with the ends sticking out. One of the strangest ''hair-don'ts" I've seen that didn't involve an actor playing a creature from another planet.

Count me as another who did not want this signing to happen. When Cappie demanded a trade to New York, it was all "she's building her fashion line in the fashion capitol." When she was traded to Chicago, it was all "she's returning home." And now she's like "I was born in California." Cappie: you done retraced all your roots now and it's past time to leave the game. Stop before you ruin another team.

If Vadeeva can only play Center than flip Lavender to the 4 spot

Can LA afford that roster of 12 players?

Can they just cut R. Williams? or trade her for like a 2nd round pick?

Do you think going with only 4 posts, one of them being a rookie, is a good idea?
