I kinda wonder if Xargay forced PHX’s hand by signing with them in a season that she’s very unlikely to make their 11-player roster. That way after being cut she would be free to sign with SEA, for instance.


Huh..?

Sounds like the OP is saying Xargay is coming over with anticipation of being Cut so she can join the Storm in so many words and not getting too personal Laughing Laughing

Not asking the Mercury to just cut her so she can do that anyway, if that’s what Xargay/Storm want to do, is where I got confused. Laughing

Glad to see that Xargay will be on the floor again with any team. She has too much left to retire early. Sonja Petrovic has already announced that she is going to retire after the olympics.

And Xargay announced earlier this year that she's retired from the Spanish national team, which is obviously a huge bummer for them. I was wondering if she'd try a *small* comeback and then decide whether to retire altogether; WNBA comeback isn't exactly small.

May not mean anything , but i noticed in the teams tweet video showing the new jerseys with players wearing them they did not have BG with one ? They included her in clips from real games but none with the new jersey ? Maybe due to her being overseas idk , BUT as a wings fan praying for this trade this makes me smirk a bit Cool Cool Cool Overanalyzing ? Maybe...Maybe Not ?

They're also selling her jersey. I feel like Nike wouldn't have wasted the money printing them only to have to severely discount them before the season begins for being a traded player.

Could end up a collectors item & im sure making a change to 1 jersey would not be cost effective to Nike something similar happened in the NBA before this season started with a Suns player when the new jersey came out before he got traded lol Laughing Laughing

Fair point but W jerseys are a lot less cost efficient than NBA jerseys which is why they only print certain players. They're only selling BG and DT right now. Not even SDD. Most teams only have 1 jersey out. Im sure if there was an inclination that BG was on the move, Nike would've only made the DT one and been fine with it.

Keep wishing though. I love the enthusiasm!

To be Fair you guys have the hottest jerseys of them all IMO. The White the purple looks awesome. Definitely will purchase a DT jersey before its all said and done. #WFFL Cool Cool

So, I bought a BG one even though I have 2 of hers already and realized afterwards that I should've gotten the DT one. I'll likely have to return it due to sizing issues anyway, so I can switch it up then.

Well, I'm a 6ft male. 190lbs. I ordered the xxl for the Liberty jersey and XL for the PHX one. I have some mediums of the fanatics jerseys that fit fine (although after quarantine I would probably go up to a large in those). They're arriving Monday. I'll give you guys a report on fit.

The Brondello effect is still very strong (as evidenced by the signing of Sara Blicavs to a training camp contract)

Probably one, maybe two if you're not high on Cunningham.

I'd be surprised to see any of the below cut, and the money only lets them keep 11 (unless Hartley's suspended, which seems unlikely).

PG: Skylar Diggins-Smith/Bria Hartley
SG: Diana Taurasi
SF: Kia Nurse/Megan Walker/Sophie Cunningham
PF: Brianna Turner/Alanna Smith
C: Brittney Griner/Kia Vaughn
