Man, this is huge for DAL. With all the bonding that was happening between the Opal players when Lauren Jackson announced her retirement, I had a feeling something like this might come out of it.

I hope nobody falls for April Fools jokes on here anymore, though at least this one is a bit more believable for those who don't remember what day today is.

Well done! Laughing

I was thinking about doing one about EDD or Parker or someone demanding a trade to the Lynx....

But this was better.

This wasn't even that believable. At least make the contract something that's possible, since a max contract in the WNBA is 3 years.

That is a 4 year deal (through 2019 season). So....

It's four when re-signing with your own team.

I admit, I fell for it. Then again, I don't get off into April Fool's that much. So its easy to forget. Fell for it hook, line and sinker. Made my blood pressure rise. Laughing Laughing Laughing

No it wasn't. Rookies get a 3 year then a team option 4th year. They took the 4th year option and extended it 3 more years. This is why the Meesseman and Diggins press releases didn't say it was a 4 year deal, they just said what year the contract was good through.

A new contract is a new contract. She signed a four year contract. As Richyyy pointed out the CBA allows the current team to do 4 years.

OK, looks like I read it wrong. CBA says a contract can't be longer than 3 years, then it says it can be 4 if it's your own free agent. Whatever. I didn't believe this either way.

Maria Stepanova would be more believable.

The only faintly believable Hollywood Liz returning to the WNBA April Fools Day rumors would have to involve the Purple & Gold.

Cambage is enjoying life at the moment. What i can make out from her snapchats is vacation with friends, partying, going out to nice dinners, having fun but also working out regularly. No chance of playing in the wnba

though it says multi-year deal I have to wonder if it's just a two year deal? New CBA coming in 2020(maybe for 2019?) and will Liz show up during an Olympic year?

Of course not! She's Hollywood Liz!!! When has she ever been serious about anything?

Liz; "Well, I was serious when I signed the contract, but, what can I say?---I'm not serious now!!!" Razz

Yeah - why can't she be like Parker, or Fowles, of Angel, or Taurasi and show up for every game, every season?
