Sophie has been a part of every single piece of marketing for next season. I highly doubt she is getting traded Laughing

There is such thing as quality depth. I’m not sure why people are acting like Griner isn’t open to taking less to win, just like she did this past season.

It one thing when your C. Parker making huge money on TNT to take less at the end of your career

It’s another when you’re a top 10 player coming off a lost year and not playing over seas this off season where she usually made the vast majority of her income to play on a team where you get paid less than a “quality depth” player. 200k would be taking less Griner is the definition of a super max player 150k which is what R. Allen will be getting paid seems absurd.

I mean if that is what she is willing to take fine but seems strange her contract isn’t signed yet. I’m willing to bet Cunningham would have been in the EDD trade and EDD would have been on the cheaper contract so Griner could get her due).

(I think something is going on in NY as well the other place that hasn’t inked its deal with its big name core and other unrestricted free agent)

FWIW, Griner just inked a book deal that is likely paying her substantially more than her W contract and her former overseas contract.

Also, Brit gets flown in private, which is necessary but also a form of compensation.

Amy Atwell signed a Training Camp Contract with the Phoenix Mercury.

Very Happy

Her game has matured nicely this WNBL season, to the point where she would be getting close to Opals squad consideration. Glad someone has been keeping tabs on her.

Yeah, to be honest my reaction to the Atwell signing was "I guess we've reached the camp filler stage of free agency" but then I checked the numbers she's putting up in Australia at the moment. Obviously there's a big gap between WNBL and WNBA but looks like she might at least be a meaningfully different player than the one we saw for five minutes in the US before.

Official WNBA social media is saying Griner has been re-signed, but nothing is showing up in the transactions section yet. Not seeing any details on the contract.

Richyyy has it as $150k

"Source confirms that Brittney Griner has re-signed with the Phoenix Mercury on a one-year contract, protected, for $150,000.

That's basically the most they could legally give her without further trades. Final five roster spots all will have to be on the base minimum."

9-31 in 2023 puts the team in good Paige position if they happen to end up in the lottery again.

New York has swap rights to Phoenix's 2025 first-rounder from the Mabrey/Onyenwere/DeShields trade mess. So if that happens, the Mercury aren't getting her.

D'oh. Silly of me to forget that.
No silver lining to sucking this season then.

I hope Girl Dad is up to the challenge.
The starters are going to have to do a lot of heavy lifting.

Phoenix should find a way to sign T. Hawkins...That would be a great pickup

Crazy to think that we could see two of the teams in the Bueckers lottery not holding their own picks.

It will be as bad as when teams were trading around Sidney Spencer instead of drafting Tina Charles.

Phx really needs to look at some of these free agents
