I can't imagine trading Chiney Ogwumike for anything less than a guaranteed all-WNBA level player.

Granted, Chiney has been hurt, but she has the potential to be as good as her sister (not saying she will be, but there's a chance) and unless the player you get back in a trade has the potential to be that good, making any kind of a deal is simply dumb. (Of course, if Connecticut knows Chiney's injuries will limit her effectiveness for the rest of her career, different scenario ...)

There just aren't many players with her size, skill and athleticism, and a two-for-one deal without an all-WNBA player in return won't get it done either. Two good players do not equal one great player at this level ...


I like Chineys game but i dont think she will ever be an MVP like Nneka. Solid allstar yes but on an all WNBA probably not. There are too many good posts that will be good for many years to come (Griner, Nneka, Charles, Stewart, EDD, JJ)

This is a double whammy for you. Not only is she no longer with SAN, she's a big reason why PHX hasn't completely collapsed without Griner.

Yes, there is justification for being happy to see her go, but she was a very solid player in this league for a long time -- and would have had a better career if not for her encounter with Latasha Byears way back when.

She's also one of the last links to the great Brazilian teams of old, which were the biggest rivals for the U.S. for a time, and in fact were the last to win a major international title other than the United States.

Come home Erika we have roster spot open (if I can count to 11 correctly). We are getting the band back together.

Kind of odd they would do that considering they have to pay her salary anyway (unless some team picks her up I guess.)

She does deserve to get her jersey retired in Atlanta. Might be a good way to end the season on a happier note.

She was in a walking boot last night, so maybe she's done for the season anyway. Opens up a roster spot they can try other people in if they want to (exactly what they should've been doing with the spot they bizarrely gave back to Sequoia Holmes).

It made very little sense that she was starting and playing reasonable minutes for most of the season. She wasn't helping them win, obviously isn't part of their future, and they had other young bigs who needed the time instead. Another in the list of largely inexplicable things VJ has done this season.

I'm guessing her injury is forcing her to be out for the rest of the season and she probably wants to go back home. Do the Stars even waste money on bringing someone in?

Might as well if they have somebody in mind. It's not like they're so stacked that they are refusing new auditions. Maybe bring Bulgak back if she's not tied up with Team Canada activities? Bone.... has she officially retured? Did PHX retain her rights?

Also, they're not mathematically eliminated from the playoffs, if that's their goal. Maybe it won't be their goal as people who live for the draft would think they're crazy.... but they could make it more interesting.

Yes. A player must be on the roster on August 20th to be eligible for the playoffs.

So we can sign Angel to a seven day contract as late as next Sunday.

I was a little surprised that someone like San Antonio didn't claim Burdick when New York waived her, so it makes sense. Should've happened sooner, basically.

It also helps that Cassidie(!) Burdick's only good game was opening day against SAS.
