I'm told she is demanding nowhere but NY or no WNBA.

Surprised

Good for the WNBA, good for Cappie, good for the Liberty.

Bad for the Mercury, bad for the Liberty's chances at Maya Moore, bad for the Eastern Conference.

I know that's awful for Merc fans, but if Cappie wants a chance to be the main attraction on a team then NY is a place where she'd have a good shot at that.

I could see a sign & trade deal happening. Sending Cappie to NY for Powell & Jackson. Neither team has a first round pick, so it'll be interesting to see if they pick up anyone else.

NEW YORK
PG: Moore/Mitchell
SG: Pondexter/Carson
SF: Christon/Battle/Spencer
PF: McCarville/Kraayeveld
C: Vaughn/Larkins

PHOENIX
PG: Johnson/Swanier
SG: Taurasi/Mazzante
SF: Powell/Bonner
PF: Taylor/Jackson
C: TSmith/Ohlde

That's another reason I think this trade barely works one-to-one: what would Phoenix want Powell for? She's a 4 in their system, and assuming Taylor's coming back, with Bonner there as well, she looks kinda unnecessary to me. She's worse, older, and/or more expensive than what they've already got.

Kraayeveld would be a distinctly Phoenix-style post, but with her contract and what else you'd need to add to even up the trade I'm not sure how that'd work either. Trading Cappie works much more easily if they're getting someone good who's still cheap back, and you can't do that with New York.

If she's demanding a trade, I would not give up the #1 if I'm the Liberty. If Phoenix doesn't negotiate, they get nothing for her.

I wouldn't assume that the Lib with Cappie are a lottery team.

So, after the initial reaction of "NO! NO! NO! NO!", I have some questions:

1) Why, Cappie, WHY!?

2) Is she a RFA or UFA?

3) What does NY have that we could in any way get value back!?!?!?

Fuck. I hate this shit. Don't fuck w/ my Championship team! Bad enough cap space lost us Le'Coe, what next?!

Annie, do that voodoo that you do!

No, but if you can't take on a big salary, which is why you'd be moving Cappie anyway, you need to take the shot at "the big prize" and hope.

There's nothing else on NY that could make it worthwhile. Like Richyyyyyyyy said.

I just can't see her anywhere else but Phoenix, so i'd have to hear it from her mouth to believe it. I wonder if she'll sorta answer a question on twitter? Maybe worth a try Smile

Wow! Interesting. Hope it's true. CB's sources are usually on point so here's hoping.

I think dts is right...NY's #1 in 2011 would have to be part of the deal. I would gladly part with it to get Cappie here.

Wonder why she wouldn't want to return to Phoenix. Interesting stuff.

Nicole Powell will most likely be involved in the deal. While Nicole doesn't have the playmaking or one-on-one ability like cappie I feel Nicole Powell would really fit into phoenixs system. I really like this trade!!

Also, Powell is an Arizona native. So I guess the Libs get another ex-Rutgers player while Nicole comes home.

NY's #1 is a must, if this is true...I'm sure if Spencer can go for the #1 Cappie can too.

why cappie??? Sad

and btw, I don't want any of NY's crap...(sorry NY fans..you know it's true)

Heeeheee! Something to make me laugh in this confounded thread.

Powell may be an AZ native, but I can guaran-damn-tee you she ain't as popular as Cappie.

I know NYC is the style capital, but c'mon, Cappie! We got lotsa label shopping in Snotsdale.

AMD has never seemed to me to be a "homer" kinda GM. More the "best roster I can put together (on a W's shoestring)" kinda GM. What could be going on - cap space? Multi-team trades? Sheer rumor mill gone wrong (my fervent prayer)? What personal reasons could Cappie have to want to leave a team with which she's had an enormous amount of success?

Caune, I need your voice in here, woman! Dig those sources!!!

El Barrio or Harlem Basketball could answer this...hasn't Cappie played at W. 4th in the past? If that's the case...toss in the Rutgers alums on the Liberty, playing at the Garden, and the big city...could be any of those. Not saying it is...just saying that there are things playing for the Liberty could offer her that she couldn't get from Phoenix.

I can't see any athlete wanting to be number one so much that they want to go it alone. I don't think that team is good enough to get pass the Fever even with Cappie on it. Ask Vince Carter, T-mac, Wade without Shaq, AI if it works by yourself. I guess when you have won it's easier to do. Too bad the Mercury can't find the money to make all their players happy.

1. spotlight on her and not having to share it
2. most famous arena
3. biggest city in the world
4. close to rutgers
5. eastern conference is pretty weak so its not like she will miss the playoffs (most likely)
6. familiarity with donovan (olympics) again im sure its not a reason but its fact

She'd have another all-star in Christon. It might not be Jordan-Pippen...but it'd be the best 1-2 offensive punch the Lib have ever had. Janel would have a lot more room to work too. If Christon's your second best player and McCarville's your third, that looks pretty decent compared to a number of other teams.

Well the truth is (if this is true), you either take what we offer or you'll get nothing at all (if Cappie's demands are true) and she won't play for you all at all this season)...

i understand cappie's desire and am so excited to see this happen. in phoenix, no matter how great she is, she will ALWAYS play second fiddle to taurasi. im not saying the fans love taurasi more, im just saying taurasi is the leader of that team. it is hard for a team to find one superstar with world elite talent, but to have two is incredible. for cappie to play in new york she will own all of the spotlight. and quite frankly, i believe she can handle it and more. weve all said that ny does not have a superstar. well.. they are about to, possibly. cappie has won two championships and a finals mvp. shes been there, done that. to go to a team with a losing record and completely re-ignite the great passion of ny will be a far greater success than winning another championship in phoenix. if this rumor is true, it not only makes sense to me, but i believe it is the right decision.

cappie is a rock star and she will definitely bring that hollywood, superstar mentality back to the garden. i relate this to the knicks trying to get lebron james. it all makes sense.

I had just given up hope. So how about

Powell, Jackson and 2011 1st round pick for Cappie and Mazz. Modified from version in Librty thread. Its a lot but NY needs a star off and on the court and Phx would be nuts to take anything less.

NYL 2010
Cappie/Moore
Carson/Mazz
Christon
Kraayveld/Larkins
McCarville/Vaughn

Spencer, Mitchell, #13, resigned AB, Huphpries (signed off Waivers), training camp contract, Latta (Hopefully off waivers), other, pick any two to fill out roster. (I'll pick Humphries and Latta, Mitchell if Latta is unavailable.)

Liberty fan nightmare scenario:

1. Trade 2011 #1 draft pick to Mercury for rights to Cappie, who signs 1-year deal, plus take Mazzante as part of deal and waive her in training camp 'cause mgmt. still likes Sid Spencer's 3-pt shooting better... Keep rest of team the same: Christon, McCarville, Carson, Vaughn, etc. except give up Kraayeveld for cap space.

2. Cappie has season-ending injury in May (*spits between two fingers to avoid a kunahura*)

3. Liberty end 2010 season in last place in EC again, alcohol sales increase during Liberty season by 25%. Ejections increase by 1000%, as there were no ejections in previous seasons -- ever.

4. Liberty win lottery again and get #1 pick, which now belongs to Phoenix.

5. Phoenix pick Maya Moore, who opts out of Rhodes scholarship. She figures she will get MacArthur Genius Grant when her basketball career is over anyway.

6. Cappie decides coming to NY was a bad idea and God punished her somehow, since NYC is full of sinners and she didn't get the Liberty team to pray enough before and after games, thus causing her injury; signs 5-year deal with L.A. Sparks & plans to end her career in Cali sunshine. Would have gone home to Chicago, but the Sky still suck.

7. Rebkell-Liberty fans sign murder/suicide pact to take place on draft day 2011. But they can't help discussing plans on board and so they are thwarted by Blaze's awareness of their plot as she gets away. WNBA will never discuss the incident, of course, and Rebkellians decide they'd rather live anyway so they can continue to bitch about Blaze & everything that's wrong with the league and the FFO's decisions here on the board.

8. MSG institutes increased security measures during the summer (Knicks/Rangers fans pose no threat), including metal detectors and shoe-removal policy for entry to Liberty games. Fans now angrier than ever at inconvenience. Food choices at games still remind everyone of when Becky Hammon wore a Liberty uniform except for price increases and expanding waistlines, and sushi bar is still a tease only open for Knicks and Rangers.

9. Play by Play menu is unchanged as well, except prices go up by 15% while alcohol content in mixed drinks is down 20%.

10. LIBERTY FOR ALL!

I don't see cappie playing pg. I like the idea of ny signing latta if she is released. If there is a choice, I think ny should keep Jackson over kraayeveld. I think ny still needs a 5.

Maybe ny and Phoenix could sorta do what minn and San an did with their 2nd round picks in the 2011 draft. Giving Phoenix the ability to switch 1st round draft picks in next years draft.

Liberty fan nightmare scenario:

1. Trade 2011 #1 draft pick to Mercury for rights to Cappie, who signs 1-year deal, plus take Mazzante as part of deal and waive her in training camp 'cause mgmt. still likes Sid Spencer's 3-pt shooting better... Keep rest of team the same: Christon, McCarville, Carson, Vaughn, etc. except give up Kraayeveld for cap space.

2. Cappie has season-ending injury in May (*spits between two fingers to avoid a kunahura*)

3. Liberty end 2010 season in last place in EC again, alcohol sales increase during Liberty season by 25%. Ejections increase by 1000%, as there were no ejections in previous seasons -- ever.

4. Liberty win lottery again and get #1 pick, which now belongs to Phoenix.

5. Phoenix pick Maya Moore, who opts out of Rhodes scholarship. She figures she will get MacArthur Genius Grant when her basketball career is over anyway.

6. Cappie decides coming to NY was a bad idea and God punished her somehow, since NYC is full of sinners and she didn't get the Liberty team to pray enough before and after games, thus causing her injury; signs 5-year deal with L.A. Sparks & plans to end her career in Cali sunshine. Would have gone home to Chicago, but the Sky still suck.

7. Rebkell-Liberty fans sign murder/suicide pact to take place on draft day 2011. But they can't help discussing plans on board and so they are thwarted by Blaze's awareness of their plot as she gets away. WNBA will never discuss the incident, of course, and Rebkellians decide they'd rather live anyway so they can continue to bitch about Blaze & everything that's wrong with the league and the FFO's decisions here on the board.

8. MSG institutes increased security measures during the summer (Knicks/Rangers fans pose no threat), including metal detectors and shoe-removal policy for entry to Liberty games. Fans now angrier than ever at inconvenience. Food choices at games still remind everyone of when Becky Hammon wore a Liberty uniform except for price increases and expanding waistlines, and sushi bar is still a tease only open for Knicks and Rangers.

9. Play by Play menu is unchanged as well, except prices go up by 15% while alcohol content in mixed drinks is down 20%.

10. LIBERTY FOR ALL!

Could always throw both of them into the trade. Phoenix saves some money (because Mazz is on considerably more than Spencer), New York gets to save some face by giving up Spencer in another trade for a superstar (rather than cutting her ass), and no one gets the duplicates. Everybody's happy! (sort of Wink )

LOL @thesixthwoman . Don't forget the good beer stand near sec. 126, also merely a tease for Liberty fans (since 2006 when I swear it was open once).

Also, off-topic but misstated above: NYC is not the largest city in the world. It's #5. For largest in the world, Ms. Pondexter would need to go play in Tokyo.

Everyone focusing on Powell but idk, Christon would fit pretty well in Phoenix too if you asked me. Will be interesting to see how all this plays out, if its indeed true. I know one thing though, I've learned not to doubt CB.

Shameka Christon would fit very well in phoenix's system but I believe New York has more loyalty to Christon. In addition, of they were to keep Powell and Pondexter, both of whom are new to the team, it may not be as an easy of transition as it may be for Pondexter with Christon. Not to mention, like someone said, Powell is from Arizona and players returning to their roots seems to be a recurring theme.

Starters:

Loree Moore
Cappie Pondexter
Shameka Christon
Tiffany Jackson
Janel McCarville

Bench:

Leilani Mitchell
Essence Carson
Sidney Spencer
Catherine Kraayeveld
Kia Vaugh

This is assuming NY only trades Powell and their 2011 first-round draft pick.

With Pondexter's superstar ability, she needs to be the sole star/leader of a team.

And last year Lauren Jackson was guaranteed to come to Phoenix. Sometimes, things do not pan out. Hopefully this is one such occasion.

Tiffany Jackson--the 2008 vintage--was a good 6th-woman type player, I wouldn't give up on her yet either.

That's exactly what I was wondering ... 'I wonder if this is as true as Lauren Jackson definitely signing with Phoenix last season?' Laughing

If Cappie is coming with the demand of "nowhere but NY or no WNBA", then I don't see why NY should feel obligated to give PHO fair trade value for Pondexter. Idea


That said, NY would be a disaster if they tried to field a lineup which involved 3 SFs using a half-court-oriented head coach. Therefore, Powell or Christon would likely be included in any trade. However, any more than that would unnecessary, as NY would just be bidding against themselves.

It appears to me Blaze is talking in GM Code. I'm reading the GM Code as there has been talks but nothing is concrete now.

Well the truth is (if this is true), you either take what we offer or you'll get nothing at all (if Cappie's demands are true) and she won't play for you all at all this season)...


And the problem there is that you are probably not factoring in how desparate NY is to get a real Star like Cappie......and if you follow the NBA you know our owner doesn't really place much thought into doing what his players demand ala Amare Laughing
Teams tried to low ball the Suns by offering crap. Sarver basically said "We'll keep him" and he may walk after the season and the Suns get nothing, or they may get him to sign an extention. Point is they were willing to take that chance instead of giving him up to Cleveland for JJ Hickson and a big stiff Center.

I'm pretty sure IF Cappie wants to go it will be on the organizations terms, not hers.

What happen did the Mercury try to low ball Cappie with their qualifying offer and she felt disrespected or does Cappie see advertising gold for herself in New York ?

Not saying it is...just saying that there are things playing for the Liberty could offer her that she couldn't get from Phoenix.


She played there a lot when she was at Rutgers.

Yea I was just talking, wanted to contribute to the topic. Laughing I'm sure what I said had a few people thinking, hmmm maybe he's right! Wink But honestly, if it's true that Cappie only wants to play in NY then I guess we'll all just have to wait and see how it all plays out.

Her tweets do tend to be all over the place. She tweeted several months ago about a trip to NY, raved about how much she loved it, and included a pic of the Holland Tunnel (which I think is totally illegal).

But agreed, no clue! Wink
