Regarding Sparks open practice. Syd passed well and played solid defense but wasn't hitting her 3s. Essence looked very good. She shut down the unlucky guy (male practice team) she was covering. Cappie looked fine. Misty had one great block of a taller man. I didn't think any of the other players except Shakala looked like they might make the team. Shakala reminded me a bit of Essence in her determination and strength.


What position was Shakayla playing?

Not one post above about Karlie Samuelson, yet she might just sneak on this team with her consistent 3 point showing in these pre-season games. Thoughts?

You think? Where is she going to fit? Does she play defense? Does she have a midrange game? Can she hang in the paint? She has to beat a lot of talented players to earn a spot, and Penny will go along with anything Brian wants.

So I guess Williams will make the team and Wiese is the final cut? or Dabovic?

PG: Gray/Sims
SG: Pondexter/Williams/Dabovic or Wiese
SF: Beard/Carson
PF: Parker/Bass
C: Ogwumike/Lavender/Vadeeva

Samuelson Should make the team over Wiese had a better preseason to me

I agree. And from what I saw, if she does not make your cut, there are others who could definitely use her.

Yeah, I see the final cuts as Wiese and Samuelson. I really would have liked Wiese to get another year under her belt, but with Agler's preference for vets, I think he goes with Dabovic. Neither Wiese or Dabovic can defend for a lick. I can't speak for Samuelson. Weise and Samuelson seem like one trick ponies, while Dabovic has more variety in her repertoire, getting to the basket, finding teammates, shooting the three (although her % is not that wonderful). I just hope Agler gives her some more leash out there when she gets in. My concern is that Pondexter and Williams are redundant, but I will give Agler the benefit of the doubt.

PG: Gray/Pondexter
SG: Sims/Dabovic/Williams
SF: Beard/Carson
PF: Parker/Bass
C: Ogwumike/Lavender/Vadeeva

On paper, I like this team a lot. Same starting five. Lots of questions surround the bench. Can Dabovic return to her "rookie year" productivity? How much does Pondexter have left in the tank? Can Williams perform so that her coach doesn't yell at her to pay attention? How does Bass look after her return from childbirth? Can Carson knock down open shots? Can Lavender improve her offensive efficiency? Will Vadeeva be the steal of the draft?

Can't wait for the season to start! Go Sparks!!

Former OSU guard Sydney Wiese is expected to be back for her second pro season and second year with the Los Angeles Sparks. She started the first of three preseason games and had 13 points, nine rebounds and four assists in 34 minutes of a loss to New York.

I have them at 19 right now. Not sure why he hasn’t purged all his undrafted rookies yet. I wonder if he likes Jensen? Agler is probably trying to hammer out some deals. I would make him cut all his players instead of trading with him. ATL, you’re #3 in line. You don’t need to trade.

So they're down to 17 now? The way Wiese has been put out there during media day makes me think her chances are better than we think. Maybe Dabovic arrives and gets cut on the same day?

Yeah, I have no idea what the heck is going on. On Twitter today, they were showing a picture of Samuelson at media day. We can't keep Dabovic, Samuelson, and Wiese. Only one can make it by my count. Two if Williams gets cut, trade or waived, which I don't think is as likely as I did a couple weeks ago.
