I don't think you'll find that anyone has more than three coaches. They have a head coach, two assistants, and then however many people they feel like paying with a bunch of other titles.


Technically the Lynx hired a 3rd assistant, Walt Hopkins, and his title was Assistant Coach. Though the release did say it was to the Basketball Operations Department, so that's probably how we got away with it. And as pilight has mentioned, only 3 are allowed on the bench, so he sits behind next to our DOBO.

C. Paris apparently will be out 6-8 weeks with a knee injury , but no specifics as to what part of the knee or when it happened ? Maybe this is the reason she only played 14 mins or maybe she wants out Embarassed

In the game against the Stars she went down holding her knee on a play. It took her a little while to get back up, so it's definitely a legit injury.

Akhator is playing again too. But if I were to guess I'd say they just give Glory more minutes at the 5 and play Christmas at the 4

Powers is still out, so do the Wings qualify for an injury exemption?

Once Paris misses a game, yeah, I guess. Although they basically already have been with Powers/Akhator out. Not sure if they'll feel it's worth it unless someone else gets hurt as well.

Poor courtney....Get well soon( 6 weeks hopefully)

This could be a positive.for dallas.They can now fully commit to playing small ball without Paris slowing them down.I never thought Courtney was a good fit with coach Williams uptempo style......Okay Plaisance,here's your opportunity.

This is from April 27.

http://www.smh.com.au/sport/basketball/liz-cambage-open-to-wnba-return-plans-to-visit-erin-phillips-and-dallas-wings-20170427-gvtlwe.html

Quote:
The 25-year-old also said she planned to end her break from the US competition and would be visiting Australian Opals teammate Erin Phillips at WNBA club Dallas Wings in coming months.

The new WNBA season tips off in May. The Wings have said they don't expect Cambage to suit up with them in 2017 but a visit to Dallas could help them lure her back next year.

It won't be this season. She was on a podcast recently discussing her plans this year and it didn't include any basketball until the start of the WNBL season.
(it did include another trip back to the states though - for Burning Man!)

Cambage will rejoin the WNBA when pigs fly, or is when horses fly good enough?

I get the feeling that Cambage will agree to play in 2018,sign a huge overseas contract,then skip the 2019/2020 seasons.If Liz wants to play for dallas,she needs to be committed to playing consecutive seasons.If not,maybe the best option for both parties is a trade.Would Cambage accept a trade to Chicago,Washington,San Antonio,or New tork ?....dallas could be a legit title contender in 2 or 3 years if they made 2 good trades.

The dallas franchise is in constant limbo.

BREAKING: Dallas Wings don’t deny meeting with Liz Cambage

“If there is something we need to say on our end, we will say it,” a Wings spokesperson wrote in response to being asked point blank whether the team has met with Cambage or had internal discussions about signing her.

Nor would many around the league put it past Cambage to come give the WNBA another try. As one WNBA coach put it, “She is somewhat flaky and whimsical. Wouldn’t be surprised if she made a guest appearance, though.”


Was that you, Fred Williams?

Glory seems so distant from her teammates.

Quote:
“We have players that aren’t used to playing with each other, and at the end of the day they made sure that they were going to rebound this game because of how the last game went, and that was just an adjustment that we didn’t handle well,” Wings forward Glory Johnson said following the game. “They have bigger players than we have especially since Courtney isn’t in there with me. If I’m boxing out one player the other player need to box-out the other post, and they weren’t doing that. We didn’t adjust the way that we needed to.”

Yeah she seems to only really take a liking to KD (Kaela Davis) during warm ups and pre-game once the doors open you get a chance to see who's who and Glory doesnt seem to be a team favorite with anyone besides Davis.

Might not be what Wings fans are hoping for but couldn't Cambage sign as an injury replacement player for Paris so long as Power is still out? Might mean they have to cut her once the injured player(s?) are healthy, so might not be the best way to go.

team chemistry...priceless. How many divas can one team withstand? Dissing teammates does not generally help.

It's harder on a team that is losing than on a team that is winning. The schedule is pretty favorable so perhaps they can keep a reasonable winning % but it will be tough w/o CP.

GloJo has always come off as 'me, me, me' - ie not the greatest teammate. But she is skilled. Maybe they should bring in Bone and the two of them can entertain each other with how great they are....

I have doubts about that. Player in China didnt work out for her and to me it seems like she gets homesick easily. Wouldnt be suprised if we she plays in the WNBL the next few years

Everyone else seems to be on the same page . Diggins & Christmas kelly the wives of the team seem to be pretty cool with each other . Other than that everyone seems pretty professional . Mama Taj is the disciplinary of the team from what ive noticed. Glory seems to respect Mama Taj but likes to get the last word even when Taj is just giving advice. Rolling Eyes

Glory is such a bitter sweet situation . She obviously doesnt want to be apart of this team and body language says alot on the bench and on the floor, but those comments were a bit degrading to her teammates . Her talent is undeniable and we do need her on this team but how much can an organization take before they start to blow things up ?

PODCAST: Dallas Wings executive, Australian basketball great Erin Phillips
Quote:
The two discuss Phillips’ transition, memories of her WNBA championships, and what she’s hoping to accomplish in a career that’s already encompassed so much success. Plus: how she’ll handle it if her twins decide to play internationally, one for America, one for Australia.

This would be the perfect season for Cambage to join the wings and make a deep playoff run.Most of the wnba teams have players who are injured,absent or who have recently retired.Cambage returning in 2018 doesn't guarantee dallas a playpff spot.

On the back of an 11-23 2016 season I think Dallas would be silly not to grab another lottery pick. Then make a title run rather than a token playoff appearance.

Dallas won't be making any title runs until the Camabge situation is resolved.....how can dallas draft/trade/sign players without knowing the full intentions of Cambage ?....then there's the G.Johnson situation.Is Glory on the trading block ?

Dallas at least looks like a play-off team. Adding Gray & Davis have been huge assets for Dallas. They're definitely better than Indiana, Chicago, Connecticut & San Antonio(the likely lottery teams). Might end up as high as a #6 seed if New York doesn't get it's sh!t together & Atlanta starts to slide downward.

Dallas at least looks like a play-off team. Adding Gray & Davis have been huge assets for Dallas. They're definitely better than Indiana, Chicago, Connecticut & San Antonio(the likely lottery teams). Might end up as high as a #6 seed if New York doesn't get it's sh!t together & Atlanta starts to slide downward.


I was on board with the ATL slide. I dont think they can keep up there late winning ways. Perfect opportunity to move up for us here in dallas. Then again i dont want to finish to high because we still need that lottery pick next season Laughing . Wait its the last 2 seasons combined right ? SAN looking like there going to secure the bag once again smh..Top 3 Pick for us next year and im satisfied .

On the back of an 11-23 2016 season I think Dallas would be silly not to grab another lottery pick. Then make a title run rather than a token playoff appearance.


Dallas won't be making any title runs until the Camabge situation is resolved.....how can dallas draft/trade/sign players without knowing the full intentions of Cambage ?....then there's the G.Johnson situation.Is Glory on the trading block ?


Generally, the best way to determine someone's intentions is to observe what they do ...

Liz Cambage has never given any indication she is willing to commit to the WNBA for any length of time (nor is there a good reason for her to do so), so I think the Wings clearly should move forward assuming she will not be there -- as history strongly suggests will continue to be the case.

And then if she does show up, so much the better.

I agree with almost all of that. The part I don't agree with is a personal preference and ideology. Cambage's inconsistencies have rendered my ability to see the "upside" of her joining the Wings practically non-existent. You all can argue what a transformative talent she would be to have on the team but the way I see it is, besides the way she's been jerking them around, what kind of morale killer would that be to have someone come on the team that has been dismissive of the team, made unkept promises, left them hanging on more than one occasion but its gonna be all good in the lockerroom? Just how much do you bend over backwards for a potential superstar?

If Cambage is willing to play in 2018, she might be willing to play in 2019 as well(non-Olympic year). If Phillips & the Wings org. can talk Cambage into a 2 year deal, it'll be better off for them overall. I still won't hold my breath that she even shows up for one game between now & 2019.

Liz Cambage's trip to Dallas felt like the Wings were hosting a five-star recruit on an official visit
Quote:
The Wings are now left with a scrappy collection of centers. Rookie Breanna Lewis and forward Theresa Plaisanace and Glory Johnson are pretty much the options at this point at a position the Wings frequently find to be a mismatch.
But watching the Wings' win over the Fever on Tuesday night was a potential solution: 6-foot-8 Australian center Liz Cambage.

Wheres Avery Warley-Talbert ? Ill take her on this team right now no doubt about it . Lewis & Ahkator are just not cutting it. We need strength in the post and rebounding both AWT can do specifically .

It's almost as if the dallas wings are dividing into 3 groups:

1.Glory Johnson

2.Cambage/Phillips

3.The rest of the team.

The whole Cambage situation is giving off a weird vibe.You can almost feel the resentment/tension.
