If you are LA and your cap crunch means you can only afford one of N. Ogwumike or C. Gray who do you keep?

Also considering Bonner innovated the UFA sign and trade for the super max what could LA get for N. Ogwumike or C. Gray (please remember LA has the get a much cheaper option in return for Gray or Ogwumike to free up money for the rest of their roster).

I"ve got
N. Ogwumike to NY for pick #1
N. Ogwumike to Dallas for pick #2 (maybe throw in pick #7 (or #7 for #10 swap) or KLS)
N. Ogwumike to Atl for pick #3 (and maybe something else 2nd round pick in 22 or Cazorla or right to R.Montgomery if she is open to signing for say 100K)
N. Ogwumike to Chi for Deshields (Obviously Chicago can no longer afford Ch. Parker and might have to find anew home for Dolson or Copper to make the money work)

C. Gray to Atl for pick #3 or Hayes
C. Gray to Atl for Hayes (who is still on old CBA money around 100K)
C. Gray to LV for J. Young and pick #12 or first round pick in 22 (this assumes LV doesn't re-sign McBride)
C. Gray to NY for Durr
C. Gray to Minn for Dangerfield and pick #9
C. Gray to Dallas for Harris and pick #5

(As a NY fan I don't think we are on the timeline to compete so we probably wouldn't need to make a move for Gray or Ogwumike but you never know what GMs are thinking)

I just meant if the trade for a super maxed out Ogwumike they probably couldn't also afford to sign Ch. Parker

but you are making a winking face so you probably get that so my bad if I seem obtuse.

I also quoted myself by mistake so maybe I am obtuse

and obtuse might not be the correct word which I guess would also be obtuse

I know it was a hypothetical, but they can keep Gray and Nneka. It's even possible to keep Gray, Nneka and Parker even if all three demand/require the supermax to keep them - that just increases the squeeze elsewhere.

Of course they can only core one, so one or more players could take the option out of their hands.

If LA core 4 of Nneka Ogwumike, Candace Parker, Chelsea Gray and Chiney Ogwumike all take about a 40k pay cut they will all be able to stay plus it will allow LA to chase another big star. I don't think any of those 4 are going into free agency with their hearts set on the super max

Dreak Fisher has a Vet player who is loyal to their franchise the only thing he has to do he communicate correctly and Parker is back in LA. Candace Parker is Los Angeles to lose watch Fisher mess it up. He has one job get Parker back in LA and I bet he won't get it done

I would be stunned if Parker didn't play for the Sparks. I'm unwilling to bet actual money on many things, but I'd bet she's back (barring injury or something like that).

I agree completely. Candace is very much the drama queen, and she tends to disgust me very much like Kobe did when he used to complain about every single uncalled foul against him. My thinking against Kobe as well as Candace was similar:

"Of course you are going to get fouled! You have rare, elite offensive talent, and no one! can stop you consistently without fouling you. That is the only way even the elite defenders can hope to stop you. There is no need to go mouthing off to the refs after every uncalled foul: all you will accomplish is having the refs get aggravated with your eternal whining. A few timely, discreet chats with the refs about uncalled fouls will go much further to command the refs' respect for you and to ensure you get treated more fairly."

However, Candace has very rare talent, and I wish she had the self motivation to push herself like Kobe, MJ and other unworldly superstars did. Failing that, Ace needs a coach who has the personal insight to consistently push her buttons in a positive manner, without invoking a negative pushback response with this quietly mercurial super talent. Being the young mother that Ace is, I often wondered how much further she would have developed in sheer consistency if she did not have an energetic youngster draining some of her energy every blessed day.

Ace is the official reigning 2020 WNBA top defender. Even though many would challenge that WNBA defensive award (myself included), Candace does showcase impressive skills in her defensive game at times. The same quickness, agility, strength, timing & accuracy that highlights her passing (especially the court-length passes) & scoring also shows up with her steals & occasional monster blocks. The defensive and (to a lesser extent) offensive problem has been consistency. Candace tends to do as much as she feels she needs to do to win ... and no more. She has rarely played with the every minute intensity of a Cheryl Miller, Lisa Leslie, or Tamika Catchings.

I remembered workout warrior Lisa Leslie, who had invited Ace to work out regularly with her, after being rebuffed by Candace, bewailing how the younger generation had less grinders than the old school crowd. Can anyone imagine a primetime Candace playing with the every minute ferocity of workout warrior Lisa?

I still regard Cheryl Miller as being the greatest overall female basketball talent I have ever seen as far as playing the complete game, offensively and defensively. However, a motivated primetime Candace who is balling out consistently would be a very, very interesting challenge to a primetime Cheryl Miller.
