a third round pick is pretty much like trading nothing so it really doesn't matter does it?

Picks are often used to facilitate trades. For instance, the Lynx don’t have a second or third round pick in this draft. If you don’t have draft picks it can be hard to negotiate a trade because teams often don’t want to add players to the current roster but draft picks might be useful the next season. If you don’t have draft picks to trade for next season to get the player you want, get lost sucker. Take your chances on the waiver wire.

A 3rd Rd Future WNBA Draft Pick For A Veteran Who Can Make A Contribution To The Team, A Smart WNBA GM Should Make That Deal Without Hesitation.

The NBA No Longer Does A Draft Pass The 2nd Rd. It's Likely The WNBA Does A Three Round Draft Is Fill Up TV Time

I know what baseline salary Cloud will ask for. Wink

Hmm, now why am I getting a vibe from that tweet that seems to suggest that negotiations still aren’t going well? Neutral

It's more just a response to a typically random and invented Swish Appeal article. The author is also not the first person to think 'suspended - contract expired' is somehow a type of contract. I feel like it's pretty clear right there in the name that their contract has expired.

Maybe she should demand a trade to a team that has some cap space.....and willing to sign a longer deal.

Last I read in the Wash Post Emma Meesseman's indecisiveness on her return after the 2021 Summer Olympics was holding up the finalization of Natasha Cloud's new contract with the Mystics.

I'm predicting somewhere in the neighborhood of 190.5K in 2021, 196.2K in 2022, 202.1K in 2023 for Natasha Cloud, which is slightly better than the new contract the Sun did with Jasmine Thomas.

I’m predicting a one-year deal at $117K, which matches Sanders’ amount.

Cloud >Thomas > Sanders

So, if Cloud is making what Sanders is, Connecticut is being badly mismanaged.

Connecticut is badly mismanaged, but that has nothing to do with this. Wink

So far the players on suspended contracts have been signing for right around the value of their last year’s contracts. That’s why I made that prediction. Has nothing to do with how I value Cloud. I would have preferred having Cloud come to the Lynx over either McBride or Powers. PG is a very important position, as Reeve seems to have forgotten.
