I've been following some of her posts on X (formerly known as Twitter and now known as a cesspool, but that's for another day), and it seems like she's having fun with this.

Is she an unrestricted free agent? I know it's somewhere on here, but I'm too tired to look right now haha

If New York can get rid of Sloot, she’d help there..plus it seems like she had/has a good relationship with Sandy.

She's a Cali girl so it's LA. She will see who gets the Lottery picks and where the top two or three will go should they decide to enter the Draft. It won't be Phoenix, I don't believe.

She's really in a good spot to choose Cali or go to a team with serious playoff potential after they choose their Lotto picks. Indiana would be a good place for her, especially if they get Paige or Clark. She's already connected there to ND and home.

If the Lotto balls are weighted, the money teams will get first picks, i.e., LA, Phoenix and then Indiana thirdly.

How is Diggins a Cali girl? She's Hoosier born and raised. She signed with Roc Nation, the most un-Cali management group there is.

Unless you are meaning she's a spotlight craver and that makes her a Cali girl? Yeah, I didn't get the allusion either.

The Beach Boys did make a song that said, "I wish they all could be California girls".

Too many variables to assume where SDS is going...The upcoming draft will definitely be a factor in her decision-making process...but we don't know what...We also don't know which teams are fully committed to bringing Skylar aboard.

* Is Skylar looking for the most money?

* Is Skylar willing to take 15-25% less to play for a title contender? (Connecticut)

* Does Skylar want to play closer to home? (Indiana, Chicago)

* Does Skylar want to play in a big market? (Los Angeles)

* Does Skylar want to play on an up n upcoming team (Indiana)

* Does Skylar want to play in a veteran team? (Connecticut)

* Is Skyler willing to share the spotlight with another backcourt another star-caliber player? (Loyd, Clark)

So many variables

is there any chance she goes to Minn.? could be good if she's looking at olympics this year...? or did last olympics seal her fate.

Skylar turns 34 in August and I think she will go with the best team that wants her. Could be Connecticut. Dallas may pass due to her demanding a trade in the past which would have Atlanta as another pick.

When I run through all the options Atlanta is the one I keep coming back to.

Minny and LA seem like the obvious other options.

Plot twist, Washington?

She's too dramatic. Manny can have her, we are perfectly content with Canada and a peaceful locker room.

Canada is a UFA. Sparks might not have her next year.

I'm confident the Sparks will re-sign her. She's a local girl who grew up watching the legendary Lisa Leslie and the back to back champions. She wants to be here. The Sparks will give Jordin her flowers 💐 to stay.

But, but, but the Twitter Queen is so exciting, so dramatic. Don't we need someone to bring back that Hollywood Liz drama? Laughing

The least the host could do is get SDS career ppg right...She says Skylar is avg 19.7 pts for her career which is wrong (16.7 pts)


Laughing Laughing Laughing ....The host says Indy has the 1st rd pk 2 years in a row...lol


OMG...She just said Indy could start Skylar and bring Clark off the bench Laughing Laughing Laughing ....Why would you draft Clark #1 then bring her off the bench?

That being said...Despite the couple of mistakes that she made. I greatly appreciate that she's talking about WNBA basketball on social media...We need more people like her to speak about/promote the league.

Do you think Skylar and Nneka are communicating behind the scenes about possibly teaming up together? Seattle or Chicago.

I’m sure they all talk.

I could see Seattle as an attractive landing spot for SDS and Nneka. I just wonder if Seattle wants to interrupt their rebuild with rental players. SDS and Nneka would make them immediately competitive again but it doesn’t help Seattle in the long run. Just kind of delays the inevitable.

I’m very curious how this free agency plays out. There won’t be huge splashes but it’ll be interesting how teams play their cards.

I’m sure Jewell would like to be competitive now.

But does Loyd want to play with Skylar who is ball-dominant?...and does Seattle have the cap space to sign both players?

They’ve played together before, but maybe she didn’t appreciate Diggins publicly telling her to stay in school (which she didn’t).
