Toad, I know you pay far more attention here than me--has Vadeeva said that she plans to play in the WNBA? Last I knew, there had been no indication, but I miss quite a bit around here.

Johnson probably won't be ready to start the season.

Wheeler/KMitchell
TMitchell/SJohnson(until 100%)/(Pohlen-Mavunga vs Gwathmey)
Vivians/Coleman
Dupree/Mavunga
Larkins/Alexander/Achonwa

Too many centers. Trying to be the Liberty?

Unless she has a guaranteed contract, they should consider cutting Coleman.

That looks about right which means Hamson gets cut.

I could see Seattle, Dallas, Washington, LA or NY picking her up if they aren't happy with their 5th post options.

Though I also say what the hell and start K. Mitchell from day 1.

I think it's illegal to have 2 Mavunga's on a team anyway. It's in the bylaws.

That was a consideration in some mocks. I decided to go with height over relationships.

Only if Pokey is prepared to lose from Day 1, and that’s not really Pokey’s or the organization’s nature. It did seem like Vandersloot had a baptism by fire, but I’m not that was by choice. Wasn’t the CHI starting PG Ticha hurt all the time?

The irony is if Mavunga stays it will likely be at the expense of McCall who is sister in laws with Dupree I believe.

(Maybe McCall could transition to the SF and we get the all family team)

K. Mitchell/Wheeler
T. Mitchell/S. Johnson/Pohlen-Mavunga
Vivians/McCall
Dupree/Mavunga
Alexander/Larkins/Achonwa

The only draw back is they would have to waive Coleman

Too bad the Mitchells aren't sisters

The Lynx would love that.

This had to happen. If you're going to be bad, be bad with young, cheap players. Coleman was probably just going to be blocking Vivians anyway.

No...Coleman's been garbage for the last 3 seasons...Seattle should wait for the waiver wire.

So Mavunga, Graves & McCall vying for last post spot
And Pohlen-M, Gwathmey, Simms, Abdelkader vying for one guard spot.

Probably not much of a contest here. Not saying it’s undeserved, but it’s all about the Mavungas now.

No, cutting Coleman should secure Pohlen-Mavunga as the backup SF, leaving the rest for that guard battle. It’ll be interesting to see if Abdelkader’s three point game will be enough to usurp Gwathmey’s all around game.

I hope that they try Abdelkader and see what she can bring. We already know that Gwathmey doesn't bring anything that isn't easily replaceable.

There's, what, nine players there you'd care much about keeping? Something like:
KMitchell/Wheeler
TMitchell/SJohnson
Vivians
Dupree/Achonwa
Larkins/Alexander

After that, the last three spots are anyone's, including people who aren't currenty on the roster. I kinda expect Ben Abdelkader to get a proper look, but they'll want her to show something in camp. Beyond that, why be tied to anyone in your own camp when there could be better options on the waiver wire?

They picked up Alexander at a fire sale and paid almost nothing for her. Not sure how that makes her a lock over the #14 pick.

I suppose you could try the waiver wire, depending how early they are cut. You’d have to really covet a late camp cut to invest in them without any kind of trial over what you already have and know.

I think if Carson would hit the wire Pokey would definitely grab her if Laimbeer passed. Syd Wiese.... that would be intriguing also.

But every year we speculate about the waiver wire and the good things that could come out of it and every year nothing really exciting (that I remember) ever comes out of it. Anything that worthy usually gets traded.

You have to wonder if it's just the Fever cleaning house or if possibly she's injured. If she's not, I wonder who else will pick her up?

She had one really nice season a few years back, was it for Lynn Dunn? Otherwise it's been meh at best. She's one of those players I always hope will do better...but she doesn't.
I can't imagine why Seattle would pick her up. Clark is way better and more consistent than her. If they can't find someone better than Clark, then why bother?

So they get rid of player that had one good season in her career to keep space for another player that has never had a good year........ I guess I should keep my mouth shut - last time I disparaged a Fever player she ended up on the Dream roster and the rest is history.

Yeah if they were cleaning house they could just move on from all the vets, but all the remaining vets above were re-signed this off season which is usual a good sign the team wants them around.

it looks like the coaches are working with her on post moves...so it's not like she's saying something out in left field. Even while playing SF, it's good to have post moves so you can post up smaller defenders.

Any player can post up their defender, but she said ”obviously I can play the 4.”
