I really liked Dolson’s Watch Me Work video. Nice job in the production!

Sky waive Renee Bennett.


This was released on YouTube about the same time as when she was cut. Seems to have a good head on her shoulders.

With the final cuts approaching, are there any posts out there or teams that we should keep an eye on? Dallas waived Akhator and Hamblin but neither seems worth it to me.

Also - any word on Astou Ndour? Is she even actually coming over?

Looking forward to see this team grow! I know many are counting this team out (for some good reasons and bad reasons). But I think once our solid core gels, we should be quite good. Hoping for big seasons from Copper and Parker.

I had the same thought on Akhator, but the Sky don't need another project. With the rate Coates and Dolson foul at, they need someone who can actually stay on the floor.

No idea on Ndour. One would assume she would come over since she was re-signed this offseason, though she hasn't been very consistent in doing so. Their series just ended yesterday so we'll find out soon.

Cool. She doesn't help our need for a strong post, but a player like Shakayla Thomas jumps out at me. I don't think she has any shot of making the LAS roster. She's just so athletic though.

Also keeping an eye on competitive rosters like Connecticut (B. Jones, George), Indy (Graves, McCall), Minnesota (Alleyne), Seattle (Muldrow).

At this point, I think the only solid post locks for the Sky are Parker, Williams, Coates and Dolson.

Why go after S. Thomas when you have Gabby on the team already ? Not being funny , but consensus was made that Gabby was the better of the 2 and both being the same type of player.

Considering how poorly Copper played, are we to assume DeShields will be the starting SF come next weekend?


DeShields is going to be at least a week behind most every other newcomer learning Stock’s system. If you are saying that’s an advantage for DeShields, that doesn’t say much about Stock’s system.


Some would argue that DeShields is actually four years behind, given the perceived lack of Xs and Os coaching and work on fundamentals that she received (or did not receive) from the head coaches at the two institutions she attended.

Am I the only one who prefers Dev Peters to Bulgak? She was just waived by Washington. If both are equal, Dev at least has a local edge.

Issue with Peters is she's been out for a long time. Can't really know if she's all the way back. But yeah, you'd think Peters or Latkins would probably be an upgrade on the parade of question marks in Chciago's post rotation.

Yeah, it's been a whole month since Peters finished her season in Slovakia

BOOYAH!

But yeah.... Chicago is her hometown and they have a little hometown theme going with Harper. A hometown player might not want to leave even Chicago. You might be onto something here.

Harper will not make this team. Only way she plays on opening day is if Sloot isn't available and CHI feels its best to get an exemption.

Where she'd still be a useful player at 30% of the backup big she used to be.

So Sky have:

PG: Faulkner/Hopkins
SG: Quigley/Harper/Copper
SF: DeShields/Montgomery
PF: Parker/Bulgak/Williams
C: Dolson/Coates

Hopkins or Harper get cut when Vandersloot arrives.

They're overloaded at SF. I'm guessing Williams sees time at PF.

Ndour - temporary suspension so I presume they must expect her back at some point. Can she play the 4 position?

That had to be what Stocks was thinking when she picked Williams after signing Montgomery and picking DeShields. But the list of WNBA power forwards who were under 6 feet is short.

Yes, ideally. She's highly skilled for someone of her size but has a Bonneresque frame. No low post banging for her.

She's an intriguing prospect IMO but I have absolutely no clue what her status with the team is. You're right though, they re-signed her and then suspended her so probably going to get her back sometime this summer if all goes well. I'll try to find out for you good people.
