Vandersloot, in her rookie season was benched for Dominique Canty. Diggins-Smith was benched as a rookie for Angel Goodrich.

I haven’t seen any correlation that would suggest Pondexter taking minutes from Mitchell in her rookie season will hinder or ruin her development. Mitchell, in the games I saw, was a low percentage shooter with an average IQ. But she’s a rookie PG, so that’s to be expected. Whether Mitchell played 30 minutes or 15 isn’t going to change those two things. Hopefully Kelsey comes back next year with improvements in those areas. And Pondexter is a UFA.

Regarding Dupree, who was she taking minutes from with good potential? McCall? Laughing

And in no way am I endorsing Chatman giving Pondexter 25 minutes a game, but I can respect at least trying to put a respectable product on the court even if you’re going to be bad..

Point guards often take a few seasons to find their footing.

Becky Hammon wasn't a full time starter until her 6th season.

Lindsey Harding got pushed out of the starting lineup in her second season by Noelle Quinn.

Kristi Toliver couldn't win a starting job in either of her first two seasons on two different teams. Same for Chelsea Gray.

Briann January spent her first two seasons backing up Tully Bevilaqua.

The list goes on...

It’s easy to get “pushed out” when you go down with a serious injury..

I think Cappie wants to return to PHX for her last season. How do PHX fans feel about that?
