Almost… They exceeded expectations considering how they started.. Next year, maybe they’ll have better luck. Confused

Their best future is to retain all their current players and better health.

Not exactly something you can just will into existence, unfortunately.

Pretty clear Carrington won't be back. She can be a big help to some other team as a energy player early off the bench.

If they can keep B. Jones and pickup a decent FA, they will still be formidable.

What happened that made it clear? She has a guaranteed rookie year, and she was in the last postgame interview for the Sun.

I figured she would like to go to Indiana, but would they want to trade something for her when there might be good options in free agency where no trade would be required?

But if you think about, it’s not always how good a player is perceived to be compared to another player that’s important, but rather how a player mixes in with a team. Carrington would mix in well at Indiana.

“The Sun will rise in Boston” reads their social media pages.

Just announced that the team will play at least one game next summer at Boston’s TD Garden.

I wonder if they are staking their claim in Boston to ward off potential expansion there.

Hopefully, she un-retires to go to another situation, but if not, I really enjoyed watching her play Cool

Based on her performance last year, she clearly had more to give. Disappointing as a fan, but glad to see her go out on her own terms.

Right when I thought sun might be pulling some moves they sign Rachel and Jefferson trading also traded away height with Allen
Ain’t no love strong enough to make DB stay AT better ask for a trade

I have seen it stated in a couple of places but do we actually know or have intel that Bonner isn't returning?

I was wondering if there might be a trade for Bri. Jones as well?

But if Bonner and Jones do return Conn is still going to be really good

just curious what is going on behind the scenes

Pilight never thinks that “training camp contract” makes a difference. Confused

I thought Shey Peddy was going to be a Phoenix lifer along with her buddy Sophie Cunningham. I guess Phoenix is too stacked at guard now… or they need bottom dollar roster fillers.

This is not an issue to nitpick and be critical about. 🙄

Why not? It does make a difference. Someone who comes in on a training camp contract is anything but a lock for the final roster.

It is not that serious. Any person that is interested in player X can find out the specific details of a contract on the WNBA website.
