Holmes is bigger, but she doesn't play bigger.

Will Moriah Jefferson be 100% at season's start? (Apologies if this has been discussed ...)

It seems to me that two solid bench players -- Tamera Young and Isabelle Harrison -- are starters, and that does not bode well. (Yes, Young has been a starter but a borderline one, and she's definitely on the downward side of her career.)

I think the intent is to start Wilson at 4 and Bone at 5. Bill made a point of mentioning they wanted to get more physical in the middle and Bone will do that even if she is shorter than some WNBA posts.

He also said in an earlier podcast that Jefferson would not be ready to start the season but that was awhile back. Not sure if anything could have changed but I doubt it.

Ji-Su Park has signed her rookie contract according to WNBA.com's Transactions page, which is somewhat unusual for random foreign later-round picks. Suggests she might be showing up as well. It'd be cool if this started becoming a more legitimately global league again.

Well the #17 pick isn't that late? Maybe the Aces dump Hamby and keep Park?

PG: Jefferson/Plum
SG: McBride/Holmes
SF: Young/Nared
PF: Wilson/Harrison
C: Bone/Swords/Park
12th: Holmes, Lawrence or William.

I think having 16 or more teams (counting the ABL) for 5 years helped a lot in foreigners making teams. As it stands now, foreign players are almost exclusively at or below the kind that people say they will dislike watching if the league were to expand by even one team.

Plum/Colson/Jefferson(until 100%)
McBride/Holmes/
Young/Nared
Wilson/Harrison
Bone/Swords/(Park vs Hamby)

Laimbeer liked collecting centers at NYL, so it wouldn’t shock me if he went for Park. I suppose Swords could get bumped if she craps out.

She's against Nared & Holmes for a spot. Nared adds more and Holmes proved her spot last season.

What exactly did shooting 34% from the field with a PER of 9.5 prove? That she's still as bad as in her previous stints nearly a decade earlier?

I have no clue neither....Bill looking to rewrite all the past mistakes Coffee in the top 10 last year and already on her way out. Maybe Thibault picks her up? I cant imagine bill cutting hamby in favor of park. Hamby might be this teams most physical player as their roster suggests thats the ideal player bill looks for. Physicality!

Still on the website roster and no mention of being waived or traded on the transactions page.

Coffey a 4 in college and seems to still see herself as that, but should be a 3 in the pros. But she apparently has no 3-point shot - attempted 0 in 2017.

Yeah, I haven't paid really any attention to Nared so I can't comment on how she was in college or how pro ready she is but people seem to think she was good value in the 2nd round and can replace Coffey. Can Nared play SG?

Nared can play SG as long as you want a SG who can't shoot. omg I just had this vision of a lineup that had Nared, Young, and Hamby on the floor all at once. That's the lineup to play if you want in the lottery next year!

People are projecting she won’t make the final roster. I expect she’ll get another opportunity at training camp.

Park Ji-soo committed to join U.S. WNBA

http://english.donga.com/List/3/06/26/1294840/1

Quote:
She is leaving for the United States on Monday to join a training camp of the Las Vegas club that has picked her.

The Las Vegas training camp is scheduled to start on April 29, but the team decided to call Park early on and provided her with air tickets, lodging and transportation to help her to promptly adapt herself to the new environment. The team has thus revealed strong interest in and expectations for Park.


Your secret’s out, Laimbeer.

Quote:
“When I arrive in the United States, I will boldly challenge to increase the chance to 100 percent.”


Is one of Laimbeer’s post players going to be on the shopping block?

I doubt either Swords or Bone are going anywhere. I'd say Hamby is done and they keep 3 centers. Maybe trade Hamby & Coffey somewhere for ???

Plum/Jefferson/Colson
McBride/Holmes or Lawrence
Young/Nared
Wilson/Harrison
Bone/Swords/Park

I wouldn't be so sure Nared replaces Coffey in the lineup. I'd want to see what Coffey has done in the offseason.

Hamby going away would be addition by subtraction so if you could get anything for her - like even a 2nd round pick next year - that would be to the plus.

This is what I have as well. But I would say it Nared or Burdick or Coffey for the back up SF spot.

I still think one of Plum/Jefferson could be traded.

I'm sure Hamby and Coffey are being shopped.

and I still don't think a trade involving Harrison is out of the question.

Chicago doesn't need all its wings, NY doesn't need all its guards, LA is in a bind on its perimeter if R. Williams has guaranteed money.

Looks like I had it right back on the 17th. And just think.... there should be a flood of talent hitting the waiver wire if LVA wants to upgrade that backup SG spot, and Laimbeer gets first choice. Some rookie possibilities are Scaife and Cowlings. More experienced possibilities are Alexis Prince, Harden, Banham (unlikely), or most likely one of the too many guards in the Sparks camp. Riquna Williams for free? Yes, please. Essence Carson for free? Yes, please. Syd Wiese for free? Don’t mind if I do. Agler is on the ropes. Make him cut a couple of these players. Don’t deal.

Coffey seems to be the go-to player at her club in Israel. Trouble is she can get away with playing PF overseas. In the WNBA, she’s that classic tweener. Has post skills but not that great on the perimeter. She’s only shooting a little better than DeShields from the three. I’d be surprised if Laimbeer would love a tweener.

Coffey would be a nice waiver wire pickup(Sea,NY,Ind)..she just needs to abandon the idea of being a Power Forward and exclusively develop her body/skill set for the Small forward position.

Who thought that, just because myrtle thought Coffey should be given a chance?

They were both hitting threes from what they showed.

I’m sure she was up for whatever last season. It was that bad situation in San Antonio that decided she should be the 5th post at only 6’1. Coffey’s not a PF in the WNBA and Harrison is not a center. And people wonder why they were the worst team in the WNBA last season.

Anyway it looks like Laimbeer has Coffey working on what she needs to and training camp isn’t even open until Sunday. Nothing is going to be decided on a couple of shooting drills.

She's a second-round pick on what's become a somewhat crowded roster - considering her a lock seems optimistic.

Also, with the number of posts they've added, her potential ability to play both forward spots becomes pretty redundant. They're gonna need all those post minutes to find time for Wilson, Harrison, Bone, Swords and maybe Park/Hamby/Coffey/Burdick etc. So it comes down to whether you think she's good enough to produce at the 3.

Nared has a pretty good handle, so it’s conceivable they could slot her in that now weak backup SG role. The official roster does list her as G-F. I suppose Young could be the backup SG also. Laimbeer probably had her in mind for a starter’s position. She was a quick signing.

People seem to be forgetting about Valeriane Ayayi, who also should be in competition for the SF spot.

I highly doubt Bill Laimbeer would cut a talent with Nared's upside when there are multiple teams desperately searching for a SF...Nared would get traded before getting cut.

Nared was the 13th pick in a deep draft.She has some trade value.

Eh, for what? You're not getting a first-round pick for her, so it's either some unwanted guard elsewhere or at most a 2nd. So yeah, some trade value if someone else happens to want to preempt the waiver wire, but probably not much. Most teams already have too many players on their own rosters at this time of the year.

S.Zellous?

Or maybe part of a package deal.

Coffey getting some nice elevation while Nared stands there in awe. Looks like things are over for Nared. Wink

It wouldn’t surprise me if it were fake (because even fake ones go for $100), but check out the Gucci belt on Park. Already showing a diva side. Very Happy
Laimbeer, can I get one if those authentic Aces flags?
