The Oregon Ducks currently have a great post player in Ruthy Hebard. Whatever happened to the one that graduated a few years ago, Jillian Alleyne?

She had a knee injury and was drafted in the 2nd round by the Mercury but ended up getting cut. Not sure if she ever fully recovered from the knee injury.

With all of the talk of Bonner and Dupree wanting to be in the same city, I find it interesting that one is signed and one isn't.

The thought or rumors of them wanting to play together this season doesn't seem likely now. Phoenix has Lyttle & Little at PF. No need for Dupree to come over.

Teams sometimes hold off on signing players that are expected to sign for big money. This gives them some room under the salary cap for potential signings or trades followed by freeing up room to finally sign their stars. I am assuming that Dupree, Tina Charles, and Kayla McBride (who is not yet officially signed anywhere that I see) fall under this category.

Plausible with Charles, semi-plausible with Dupree, but pretty damn unlikely with McBride. The only players Vegas have that could be on anything like high-end salaries are the three they've added this offseason (Young, Swords, Bone). The rest of the roster is youngsters and junk. Leaving about as much cap room, relatively speaking, as the Cleveland Browns. Even Trader Bill shouldn't have any real need to ask McBride to wait.

But yeah, sometimes both sides are so comfortable that the deal will be done that they feel no urgency to dot the i's and cross the t's.

I think it's 100% certain. I don't know the cap numbers in LV's specific case but the fact that she was on site and still unsigned is what makes me think they are holding off deliberately. Or maybe there's just some detailed negotiation going on like she gets a chip allowance Laughing

Is “choose a seat” more sacred then other community service assignments players need to sign up for?

Well, yeah. This is the team catering to its STH, the most valuable customers they have. It wouldn't make much sense to have them meeting and getting pictures with someone who isn't going to be on the team.

And in the inaugural year, too. They had Jefferson and McBride with McBride coming over from Turkey for it. Pretty clear indication that they are the players they want as the face of the franchise.

They had Kayla Alexander representing the Aces at their big name reveal ceremony and subsequently practically gave her away in a trade. Did that make sense? Everything doesn’t have to make sense. Stuff can happen, like Howard not staying with the Lynx.

I’m sure Harding signed autographs and took pictures with plenty of fans that preseason before he got traded away from ATL.

McBride is the best player that would be on the team after she signs (until Wilson signs), so I agree that it doesn’t much sense not to sign her and yet she remains unsigned for reasons unknown and can only be surmised. Her being at a “choose a seat” event wouldn’t give me that much comfort. In fact, her being at this event and not being signed would give me pause.

Comparing a rotation player, who was most likely the only player available at the time, to the franchise player is interesting.

Didn't they also have MoJeff there? So yes, they had two under contract players representing the team. There might not have been an intention to trade her at the time.

Isn't that literally what happened with the Lynx and Maya Moore a couple years back? I remember all sorts of trepidation on these forums about what it could all mean, and through all the hand-wringing the voices of reason were saying the delay was a non-story. I think ultimately the excuse was some nonsense about a printer, but in reality it was just that she was overseas and neither side had any worry about what was going to happen and that they would make it official eventually.

Latta's still available. And the cored players(Charles, Dupree, Langhorne). But that's about it.

There's only Langhorne and Charles left for core players. Charles seems to be staying in New York. Maybe a Langhorne trade?

Well, now you know the trade, Doug F. posted it.

Gee and it involved the Lynx, and Shades didn't know about it. Hey, but I don't know anything....

I wonder if the cap situation for the Liberty is tight enough that Charles may be saying go ahead and make some deals to get some good players for them and she’ll take whatever’s left over. Just trying to think of why they would delay her signing when it appears she wants to stay with the team.

I’ve noticed they have occasionally promoted in the past that she has donated half(?) her WNBA salary to charity, so she might not worry about getting top dollar. Of course, I’m not sure if has played overseas this season. Kinda hard to take a big tax write off when you’re not making that big overseas money.

I'm still not worried about the Charles delay

I believe if a player is cored they have to receive a max contract.

Maybe after paying Hartley that has brought them close enough to the cap that someone needs to be traded before Charles signs but I'm thinking it is just waiting until they can make a big promotional splash.

What if there's theoretically some type of deal being worked in NY regarding charles ? Still seems strange a player committed to a organization holding out so long to say shes re-signed.

Colson signed by Las Vegas.

I bet Laimbeer was one of those supposedly pursuing Wright (per StarTrib), and then went ahead and signed Colson when the Lynx signed Wright. Just a theory. Don’t go nuts.

I wrote that elsewhere myself. I think you are completely correct. Colson seems to be a late signing every year, doesn't she?

I was wondering why Colson wasn't re-signed earlier that makes sense.

T. Wright going for the 'ship instead of the mentoring the youth role.

Adding Colson also frees Laimbeer up to move one of Plum/Jefferson. Jefferson not being able to start the season throws a wrench in the works but I won't be surprised to see one of them moved, maybe on draft night.

I still like Jefferson and #13 to Seattle for #5 (If Jefferson looks like she can return to full health)

Jefferson was drafted by Hughes, played 4 years with Stewart, comes from the same system as Bird. If she is healthy she is probably a better fit in Seattle than Canada or L. Brown for heir apparent to Bird. Throwing in #13 allows Seattle to get a post to compete with L. Montgomery for the 5th post spot.

At #5 Laimbeer can take whichever decent sized wing is left between Deshields, G. Williams, and Vivians, they might even start, though I think Laimbeer would give the nod to Young at least at the beginning.

Plum/Colson
McBride/Holmes
Young/#5 (Deshields, Williams or Vivians)/Burdick
#1 Wilson/Harrison/Dos Santos
Bone/Swords

Bird/Jefferson/Quinn
Loyd/Whitcomb
Clark/KML
Stewart/Howard
Langhorne/Paris/#13

#13 Mavunga, a free falling Russell, Gulich (a little high for Gulich but I could see Hughes liking her, Appel-ish)

Probably more tactful to say "motor deficit" or "energy deficient".

Amber Harris remains the only RFA available. Does anyone take a chance on her?


I think Amber has run her course. All the talent in the world only lasts so long and her work ethic to get better just hasn't seem to show. Shes a very lethargic player i wont say lazy! Rolling Eyes


Probably more tactful to say "motor deficit" or "energy deficient".

A drooling slack jaw sandbox player.

Based on free agency and the draft I'm making a list of Waiver Wire possibilities. I'm breaking it into two parts list one maybe/maybe not players that could be waived but might make the last couple of roster spots and likely might make it but more likely they won't (I'm also doing this off the top of my head so I'm sure i will miss a bunch).

Maybe/Maybe not

George
Griffin
Banham
Romero (if she comes over)
L. Allen
R. Allen
Zahui B
R. Gray
Cloud
Peters
Hamson
McCall
Pohlen-Mavunga
Hooper
Bulgak
Akhator
Burdick
Hamby
Prince
R. Williams (if not traded)
Weise (if they can't go 12)
Fagbenle (if they get lucky at #17)
Miyem?

More Likely

Laney
Faris
Ibekwe
Alleyne
A. Taylor
Hightower
Gwathmey
Simms
Alston
Dietrick
Epps
Lewis
Coffey
Harden
Peterson
L. Montgomery
B. Richards?

So who would you consider for your team if they got waived?

Did you do a depth chart of each team to arrive at these?

Or if the Liberty actually cut Zahui and no other team wants her.
I think a trade can be worked out for Zahui.

Quote:
Hightower
Gwathmey


Likely?

Nope did it off the top of my head but in indy

Wheeler/
S. Johnson/T. Mitchell
Coleman
Dupree/
Alexander/Larkins/Achonwa

that is 8

then you have two first round picks and a very high 2nd round pick which makes 11

then you also have the more likely IMO
Pohlen-Mavunga, McCall and Hamson which gets you to 14

before counting Gwathmey and Simms they could make it but they have to jump the 2nd round pick, Pohlen and each other to have a chance, but they could be maybes instead of likelies I guess

In Washington you've got

Toliver/Latta
Hill/SWK
TRP/Cloud
EDD/Hawkins/Peters
K. Thomas/Sanders

that doesn't include #7 (a perimeter player is the general consensus) #19 or Taylor. Unless Hightower can beat out a decnt first round pick or one of the guars above I don't think she has too much of a chance, if #7 is big and EDD goes to SF that even less opportunity on the wing for Hightower. I don't mind switching her from a likely to a maybe though.
