Seattle at a logjam at PG?!?! Quinn's the emergency PG now & Peterson's gone. No logjam at all.


That's why I would try to trade Peterson for a backup post


Peterson is not really worth that much tbh and we dont need another post. When is Dev Peters going to play. All our posts (except Paris) are true powerforwards and now you want to bring in another PF.

Tbh we are set at the post position. I would keep Quinn too so that Canada has time to adjust and in case Birdy misses a game. Also Quinn can play backup minutes at the SG and SF position too. Pretty versatile and decent defender at those 3 positions.

I just hope that KML is healthy and in decent shape (like the beginning of last season before she got injured) so that she can actually play those backup minutes at the 3. If not then we certainly need a 3rd player at that spot (give Howard some minutes there, maybe Crvendakic?)

Ummmm ... did you notice the small forward position? If you're looking to upgrade, starting there would seem like job one.

If Seattle was smart.They'd give Phoenix a call,and offer them their 2019 2nd rd pk for A.Prince...With all of the new talent Phoenix has added to their roster,Prince might not make the cut.I'd also call LV and ask about the availability of N.Coffey(for a 2nd rd pick)....Trading KML for Coffey,Prince,or Russell is also an option.

If SEA is really smart, they’d just wait until these players show up on the waiver wire. Coffey is a goner for sure unless she has reached another level and can beat out Nared or Burdick if Laimbeer likes her as a SF.

I doubt Brondello cuts Talbot, so Prince will be in a battle with Scaife. Who knows who wins that one.

I think they’re okay at SF. They got the Serbian and Howard who can play at the wing, plus they’ve got the rookie Muldrow, who definitely deserves a shot.

The problem with waiting for the waiver wire is that multiple teams will put in a claim.Also,WNBA teams have a history of trading players before they get cut.

Schimmel traded for 2nd rd pk
Clarendon traded for 2nd rd pk
Zahui B traded for 1st rd pk

Are those players better then Howard getting those backup minutes at the 3 spot or even Quinn.

Coffey was the 5th overall pick last season.Most people thought Prince's lack of scoring at Baylor hurt her draft position.However,when you look at her senior year numbers,they're very impressive despite averaging only 12 ppg.

Code:
Player min fg% 3fg% ft% reb a to blk stl pts avg
Prince 28.7.469.416.667 5.8 89 37 32 23 446 12.11


47% fg...42% 3ptfg and 89a/37t is damn good.

So to answer your question...maybe...Both players still need some time to develop(Playing time)..What I like about Prince is that she's a natural wing.Despite playing PF in College,I also believe Coffey is a natural SF.Howard IMO is more suited to play backup PF,but can slide to SF depending on the matchup.

Reading through this thread reminds me of how sad I am that Stormfans is gone. Did someone say there was a Facebook group or something?

Thanks! I remember I saw the explanation somewhere, but I've forgotten. What led to the end of Stormfans? I know when I stopped paying attention Scott was starting to think the direction of shutting it down anyway.

I wonder if Hughes and Agler have different philosophies, or is Agler just taking his time? Hughes is trimming the fat before camp while Agler keeps putting on the pounds. Surprised

So Seattle wasted a 2017 2nd rd pk?(15th overall)...I understand the 2nd round can sometimes be a crap shoot.But they would've been better off drafting A.Prince,or trading the pick for a future 2nd rounder.

Seattle's draft history is just terrible.The only time they get it right is when they have the #1 overall pick:

Stewart
Loyd
Bird
Jackson

Peterson was a clear cut when they drafted Canada. Quinn will be the defacto 3rd PG.

There’s absolutely nothing to show for the 2017 draft class. All three rounds gone.

Also gone is the coach responsible for the picks...

Why would they be against it? Peterson at #15 seemed like fair value. I kinda wonder if Peterson got a fair shake. She had to develop under Boucek. Someone like Pokey might be able to spin her into gold.

My comment from 2017 Seattle thread

zune69 wrote:

Peterson's shot selection is subpar.She does an inadequate job of setting up her teammates.The ball sticks to her hands(Dibble,dribble,dribble).Peterson racked up a high number of assist,but that's only because she had a high usage rate.Passing the basketball was secondary.She averaged 19 fg attempts per game.Peterson's a combo guard.I believe she can develop into a instant offense player of the bench,but starting pg ?...I doubt it.


Peterson also had a game where she shot 10-37 from the field.

Peterson is a low IQ basketball player.

Do you have a link to that? I want to see the context.

They probably were hoping for a successor to Bird. In that case their only other possible options were a deferred Romero or Chong. I think they made a reasonable choice.... nothing to really beat them up over like trading the first round pick.

Peterson is not a pass first PG. Something that is important when your playing with Stewart and Loyd. Hopefully Canada can provide that pass first mentality

People say the same kind of thing about Mitchell, Plum, and Carter. I think it depends on the system.

Dream should give her a training camp contract. If not the Dream, you would think some team would as opposed to some of the random players that are getting invites.

Didn’t SEA kick Quigley to the curb?
Didn’t Pokey stick with Vandersloot despite the first couple years of heavy angst from CHI fans?
Didn’t Pokey convert Faulkner from a third round pick to a guard that CHI fans refuse to deal?
Didn’t Pokey convert Poison into Perrier? (Wheeler reference)

I may be forgetting someone, but that’s not a bad collection right there.

Maybe Hillsman or Potter beats out Crvendakic for a spot?

I've seen quite a bit of Hillsman and Potter and don't think either are W material. But I don't know anything about Crvendakic.

Thanks Stever. well I think we can safely say that neither Potter nor Hillsman will beat her out...but of course they don't remotely play the same position. Looks like a better shooting version of Tak.. She's already wearing the right colors too.

Looks like a good pick up. Looks like a perimeter threat, something Seattle needs. Hope KML comes to camp in shape, or Crvendakic will be taking her playing time, and maybe some of Clark's as well. I hope Crvendakic works on her ball fake because I noticed a few travels that she may not get away with in the W.

Ive seen her play a few times when scouting Coates. Crvendakic is a bit skiddish or timid against superior talent. Something you obviously wont see on a highlight film , but i do agree shes a good pick up for the storm. I see her cutting into KML and whitcombs minutes for sure. Her defense still needs a lot of work feet wise.

That could give them a nice mix. Whitcomb can come in when they need some quick-release threes, and Crvendakic can come in when they need some slow-release threes.

Maybe Hillsman or Potter beats out Crvendakic for a spot?


I've seen quite a bit of Hillsman and Potter and don't think either are W material. But I don't know anything about Crvendakic.


Toad’s love of undrafted camp invites rivals you and Thibault’s love of mid-major players. Wink

I do love some mids but usually don't have great expectations for them actually making a team.

Looks like a good pick up. Looks like a perimeter threat, something Seattle needs. Hope KML comes to camp in shape, or Crvendakic will be taking her playing time, and maybe some of Clark's as well. I hope Crvendakic works on her ball fake because I noticed a few travels that she may not get away with in the W.

How are storm fans feeling about Crvendakic making the team now after getting a live view of her talents in euroleague over the weekend? I was a bit disappointed but shes not on my team so im interested to hear your thoughts?

I like her rebounding and effort she puts up but offensively the only thing that ive seen is that she is a good spot up 3pointshooter. And if you compare that with KML then KML is a better shooter. She is a project. She will not get minutes at PF because we are loaded at that position. I dont know if she can defend SF's in the WNBA (maybe in the future) so minutes will be limited there aswell. Because i would rather have Howard play some backup minutes at the SF spot then her. If KML is healthy then i think the names below are locks with 1 spot up for grabs. I wouldnt mind if she got that spot but we also have to look at players that might get waived.

PG: Bird, Canada, Quinn
SG: Loyd, Whitcomb
SF: Clark, KML
PF: Stewart, Howard
C: Langhorne, Paris

Sue Bird isn’t just a legend for the Storm, she’s a rock for Team USA

..“I see the work she puts in and I see the thought she puts in,” said new Storm coach Dan Hughes, who is a USA Basketball assistant. “What intrigues me is watching the process she goes through and the sacrifice she makes to put her body in that situation. And not many athletes do that.”..

OK, now I want to know what the process is that she goes through and what situations she puts her body in.

Boring diet and sobriety? That's my guess at least. She is in INCREDIBLE shape, best in her career.

In terms of 'sacrifice' she also stopped playing overseas long before her earning potential was finished, saving her body for the Storm and TeamUSA. The better move for her bank balance would probably have been to prioritise Dynamo RandomRussianTeam.
