From what I hear, yes. She's on the Sky's training camp roster, as well.

Oddly enough they need her significantly less now than the last time she came over. Melvin, Fowles and hopefully a healthy Christensen make Bernie much less necessary.

Yep. Bernie is coming over. She will definitely have to battle for a roster spot, but at least she is actually coming back. But yeah, the need for her isn't high. However, I wish former Sky-draftee Laura Macchi would come along with her Famila teammate. We could definitely use Laura. I never understood why she never came over.

Y'know, I looked up Ngoyisa's numbers after I posted that the other day and was shocked at just how good they were. Obviously that Sky team was abysmal, but her individual numbers that year were actually pretty impressive while she was there. As a fourth (or even fifth) post option she'd probably be considerably better than most teams have at that spot in their rotation.

Yeah. Some Sky fans aren't big fans of hers, but I always thought she was an okay option. I'm really shocked she's coming back though. She didn't like her first year in Chicago, from what I've heard. Dave Cownes annoyed the hell out of her. But I'm glad she's at least going to get a second chance.

Was Key with the team in year one? If so, perhaps she had a positive experience with him.

Adding Bernie would certainly create a powerful post contingent for the Sky. They will have bodies that will allow Fowles to play aggressively. Melvin, Dupree, Fowles, Bernie, and Christensen sounds pretty damned good to me, especially since Bernie really brings some size and some bulk. To me, the onus heads to Melvin and Dupree to really show this group the way becoming true leaders and accepting roles, no matter how big or small. Also, those are the two most likely to use the jump shot to extend out of the lane, something that isn't the best skill from this collection of players.

Key has been here since day one, and he used to live and coach in Europe, so he probably can communicate with her better, since she only speaks French.
