She's only a reserved player if given a reserved qualifying offer (as explained in various places on that Her Hoop Stats site Wink ). Once given that qualifying offer, she could technically just sign it and she would've been re-signed with Atlanta. So as they've stated they absolutely won't be re-signing her, I presume they won't be sending out the qualifying offer and she would therefore become an unrestricted free agent. And then couldn't be traded for anything.

Move that makes a lot of sense. Took a long time to get there, but hiring the guy who's won GM of the Year both the last two seasons can't really be argued with. And it means that hiring Wright as head coach first was probably fine, given their links in Vegas. Assuming Padover was always the planned hire, Wright might well have essentially been his choice.

Great hire for Atlanta, but I wonder why he wanted to move on from Vegas?

Those are wonderful hires, worth the wait. I would have rather waited for the right hire rather than choose the wrong one just to get someone in there. Maybe this will entice Angel to want to come back to Atlanta to end her career? I think they realized with the GM fired and HC leaving right before the season, this would have been a lost season. Now though, they can plan on what players they want to keep, want to let go, want to get, need to draft. I hate that it meant 2021 was such a wash in their first season at the new arena, but hoping for good things in 2022.

Even though he won Executive of the Year twice, Padover would always be in Laimbeer's shadow if he stayed in Las Vegas. Bill brought Dan over from New York and is essentially his mentor. This is Padover's chance to be his own man without having to defer to someone of greater stature.

Padover's relationship with Tanisha Wright also extends back to New York as well as Las Vegas, so they start with a lot of familiarity and hopefully trust.

Between Vickie Johnson with the Wings, Tanisha Wright with the Dream, and now Dan Padover also with the Dream, it is genuinely interesting to me that people originating from the Aces organization have been able to branch out & go elsewhere, despite coming from a team that hasn't actually reached the highest level – winning a title. Laimbeer hasn't won a title since '08, but apparently his legacy as an influential figure in this League has continued to live on. Not saying any of those above are bad hires, since it's certainly too soon to tell. Not saying that Laimbeer sucks now or that any of it is weird/undeservedly happening either. Just noticing things out loud. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

I am HERE for the Danisha pairing!

I won't say it was worth the wait, but good work, Renee and the Northland Overlords!

Looks like Monique Billings has replaced Renee Montgomery, on the Hawks' halftime show?

Congrats to Renee. Can't wait to see if this ruffles the feathers of the anti Renee crowd...

I would think it’s both possible and okay for someone to criticize Renee Montgomery The Business Owner and/or Renee Montgomery The TV Personality, while still being happy for Renee Montgomery The Person on what was surely an important personal accomplishment of hers. Congrats to her!

Agreed. I was being glib there. It's just been a wild ride seeing how much heat she's gotten for everything.

Congrats to her.
