Can anyone tell me anything about Fagbenle? Is she and end-of-bench spare part, or is there potential for her to contribute?

Also, does this make Richyy a Fever fan?

There's definitely potential there for her to be worth more than she was in Minnesota, without always being stuck behind Fowles. In Europe she's a glaringly better player than, for example, Kristine Anigwe. In the right situation I think she's just as good as someone like Brionna Jones. But she hasn't done it consistently at WNBA level yet, so a lot of that is still optimism rather than proven. And I'm not sure how committed she is to the WNBA, which would obviously be an issue.

I wouldn't go that far Wink.

So Minnesota pays Indiana dearly to get rid of Sims, and then Indy dumps her.

Statistically, she's a decent player, and she's 27, in her prime. Sure, she's not a good shooter but the numbers say she's a good defender. So why does Indy not want her at all? Is she that much of a problem off the court? Or am I missing something?

They brought in D-Rob to run the point
They have Allemand and Doyle as other options there
and they have been developing K. Mitchell, T. Mitchell and Burke as options at the SG spot, maybe they just want to keep with their players ans taking of Sims was for the future 1st round pick and had nothing to do with Sims herself?

Who know ... but my guess is that they are building for the future. They see DRob as a better option as a back-up, especially since she has been happy to be in that role the recently. Sims instead of Robinson might give them, what, three more wins this year? Less? That's no difference for a team like this - in fact, it could actually be bad for the building for the future if they are less likely to get a No. 1 pick.

Neither player is a building block for the future.

Yeah, I can understand not wanting Sims from Indiana's perspective (although I'd have rather had her one-year deal than Robinson's three-year one). The particularly weird element is waiving her instantly. Why not agree a buyout? There was no need to rush, and Sims was always likely to agree (considering she'd be wanted elsewhere at the minimum, and would have more chance to win with virtually any other team). Also, that cap space they have is valuable equity, as we've just seen with them essentially selling a bit of it to Minnesota. You keep hold of as much of it as possible so you can use it in more deals like that (say, to take on Ndour from Dallas). Waiving her immediately was completely unnecessary.

so what on earth will the lineups look like this year... i guess collier won't lead league in MPG this year.

crystal, kayla, napheesa, damiris and sylvia starters.
aerial natalie rachel lexie off the bench.

this group of 9 seems actually very solid, well-rounded.

Even though I’ve pointed out above a clear pathway for the ultimate 12-player roster for the Lynx, Reeve has referred in a couple different places to being an 11-player roster. That makes me think not only is she possibly unwilling to cut a non-guaranteed Banham (not smart considering how much it cost to cut Sims), she most likely has no-overseas bonus money tied up with Fowles, which supposedly eats up salary cap. So all this salary information isn’t adequate enough for complete salary cap analysis. Need to know what teams are paying in bonuses. That should be the next thing.... plus updated core charts.
