I don't recall Hamby ever playing the 3 and seems to me she has yet to show much at the 4 either. I hope Riley and VJ come up with somebody at the 4 who is at least close to what they had with Young.

agree. Hamby shows a lot of activity, but not a lot of skill.

I thought NY might give her another look, glad to see someone has, and in SA there is at least a chance she will make the team.

I can see Bulgak at the 4 spot for SA. Alexander & Harrison at center with DeSouza as their 5th post.

Jefferson/Colson
Mcbride/Gwathmey
Currie/Peters/Montgomery
Hamby/Dos Santos/Bulgak
DeSouza/Harrison/Alexander

Plus #1 and #5, not a bad place to be if you are in rebuild mode. DeSouza can mentor the young posts, she and Currie give a veteran presence Jefferson, and McBride are two players with a lot of potential. There are a lot of Small Forwards on this team. I wouldn't be surprised if we don't see a trade or two.

I'll predict Bulgak won't make the cut, and Peters & Colson are unsigned as far as I know. UK, are you suggesting SAN won't even draft a post?

Doesn't look like Colson is getting resigned. The two I'd cut are Gwathmey & Montgomery.

Gwathmey looked pretty hopeless last year. Maybe if they cut her now, fans won't remember that they gave up Jia to get her...though I suspect Jia was asking out.

No Colson sure looks like they're drafting two guards.

Looks a lot like a starting 1, a starting 2, and nine backup frontcourt players in search of some starters.

Alexander showed a lot of improvement last season. I'd guess she's the starting center. Their starting 4 is the big question. Hamby? Dos Santos? Does Hughes still try to mold Hamby into a SF?

PG: Jefferson/K. Mitchell(#1 pick)
SG: McBride/#5 pick
SF: Currie/Peterson/Hamby
PF: Dos Santos/Bulgak
C: Alexander/Harrison/DeSouza

SA can pretty much go in either direction with their picks, it crossed my mind they could pick up two guards, or a guard and a wing. It doesn't have to be the guard and a post that we've been assuming in most mocks.

Both Colson and Peters are reserved so they can't go anywhere else until SA renounces their rights, they could still easily sign on when they return from overseas. PX still has three top players who haven't put pen to paper, and the Liberty still have a unsigned cored player, so I wouldn't read too much into Colson and Peters having not having signed on yet. I think they both had more impact than some players currently on the roster so who knows?

Looking at what they have and where they are trying to go I wouldn't be surprised if Currie was traded. I wouldn't be that surprised if she was traded to the Liberty. It makes sense for NY. I don't know how I feel about it though because I would be nervous to see what we would have to offer to make it happen. I don't think there is a simple one for one trade. Maybe Boyd for Currie? IDK

Colson is an assistant coach at Rice. If I was going to make an offer to New York, I'd offer Currie for Zealous. Zealous would be a good backup for McBride. If Deshields declares it would be an even better trade for SA.

I would do that trade. I like Zellous but it seems like a fair price. I actually didn't throw that out there becuase I thought Currie and Zellous were a little too similar, and thought a younger speedy back up PG might carry more interest for SA, but Zellous for Currie seems very workable.

And if they did draft Deshields they could start her with McBride and Jefferson from day 1 and not have to worry about stepping on Currie's toes or ego in the process.

Looks like SAS will have quite an array of post players in camp and I cannot say I am wildly enthused about any of them but hope VJ and Riley can sort out that mess. I still hope SAS takes a young post with the #5 if they take the best guard available with the #1

The posts in the draft aren't better than what's already there. You take best available both times. Or maybe try to fix their crappy offense.

WNBA Overseas Report: March 28

http://www.wnba.com/news/wnba-overseas-report-march-28/

Quote:
Moriah Jefferson, San Antonio Stars

Seattle’s Jewell Loyd starred for Galatasaray following her rookie year in the WNBA, and now it’s Jefferson doing the same while guiding the Turkish squad to a successful season. She’s averaging 18.2 points and 4.6 assists per game while shooting better than 50 percent from the field in league play. With three games remaining, Galatasaray sits in fourth place with a 16-6 record. Jefferson was even better in EuroCup action, finishing with averages of 22 points and 4.9 assists per game as her squad was eliminated in the semifinals last week. Galatasaray had gone unbeaten in group play before coming up short in the knockout round.

With Deshields out of the picture, I'm going to assume that San Antonio will play small with McBride at the 3. They could draft Weise. She and Plum can backup the 1 and 2. I'd try shopping for a 2018 first rounder. The only untouchables would be Jefferson, McBride, Harrison, and Plum. I think getting Wilson and a big guard in 2018 could create a bright future in San Antonio. With a 2nd first round pick and early 2nd round pick they could draft two guards with size. The pool of 6 foot guards next year is deep.

I like the way you think. I keep forgetting that the draft lottery is a 2-year process now.

That being said, it would be highway robbery if they're able to move Hamby for a 2018 first-rounder. I also don't think Erika will play beyond this season.

I think SA goes with 2 guards in the draft

Jefferson/#1 Plum
McBride/#5 A. Jones or SWK
Currie/Peters/*
Harrison/Dos Santos
Alexander/De Souza/**

* Hamby, Montgomery, Gwathmey, Hodges

** Baugh, Bulgak,

PS Don't get too hung up on Position with Plum or Hamby, and obviously SWK is a 2 while A. Jones can be a 1 or a 2 and so on.

SAS has updated their roster. Now showing the two new assistant coaches and Wade evidently gone. Also Tonya Holley, long time trainer I think, with new title and a new trainer. Hope SAS takes Plum at the #1 but I would not be surprised if they take B. Jones at #5 if she is still available.

No, but you can only have 15 players in camp at the same time.
For SAN, with a new coach and not many vets (Currie?), you would think you'd want most of your players not missing any camp time.

Hopefully Dearica gets to see her replacement since she is one of the weak links on the team...

Hamby is probably safer than over half of the team. Though, with that roster that isn't saying much.

I think SAS's roster is a lot better than a lot of people think. If they take Plum you couldn't ask for a much better back court. The big question mark is at the 4 but if one of the many new post players turns out to be a scorer and rebounder I think SAS will be a playoff team.

If they put McBride at SF, that's a pretty small 1-3.... smallest in the league? Rivaling NYL if they start Zellous at SF?

SA

Can a #1 pick come off the bench?

Jefferson/Plum
McBride/
Currie/Coffey
Harrison/Dos Santos
Alexander/De Souza

3 spots left for
Hodges, Gwathmey, Montgomery, Colson (who hasn't signed yet) Peters, Hamby, Bulgak or Baugh

SA should definitely be watching the waiver wire. NY will be releasing a decent guard or two Schimmel, Alston, Allen or Barbee could probably make and help this team.

I would just start Jefferson, Plum and McBride together. Its not like they are going to make the playoffs anyway. In the past they played Drob Hammon and Perkins line-up aswell

Nice write-up on SAS board about each of the players they drafted. Riley or the coaches must have been doing their homework to come up with Nunn. She is 6'-3" and might be just what SAS needs at the 4 in the future if not this year. I would assume Riley has some special insights when it comes to evaluating Bigs and she has signed enough of them to hopefully find some that will really work this year. Plum's comments sound like she is very happy to go with SAS and that is a big plus. From Riley's and VJ's comments about Plum I seriously doubt they have any intention of trading her so am happy to hear their plans for. Plum may be kind of a second coming of VJ, left handed and excellent passer and shooter. I think by the end of the season SAS will be looking at a whole bunch of other teams in their rear view mirror.

Nunn is a big. She played at Tenn. after transferring from Winthrop. At Winthrop she was a major force. At Tenn. she was behind Russell and barely got on the floor.

That's actually a really intriguing roster IF you cut out the dead weight like Currie and de Souza and Montgomery. This year might be painful but next year this is going to be a fun team.

Plum is a great teammate and a fan favorite. It won't take long for the Stars and their fans to find out for themselves.

Lots of stuff on the SAS board about Plum but she is not on the roster with the other draft picks. Hope this doesn't mean that Riley has lost her mind and has some crazy trade in the works.

Thanks, and thanks. I was most concerned with her SA relationship. I didn't realize she'd been traded (?). I always wanted to see her and MoJeff operating together. Oh, well.

Day has impressive stats but got little or no publicity before the draft it would seem. She is on the SAS roster today but still no Plum. Is there some reason for Plum not being on the roster? Is it because Riley is still listening to trade offers?

Plum hasn't actually signed her contract yet

That shouldn't keep a player from being listed on a roster

WNBA draft pick Nia Coffey (and her puppy) ready to run with the big dogs

http://www.chicagotribune.com/sports/basketball/ct-draft-pick-nia-coffey-20170414-story.html

Quote:
highest selection of any Northwestern basketball player, male or female, in school history.


Quote:
"One of my first few games to coach in we came in the locker room after the game. She was literally laying in front of her chair -- she just played so hard," Sides said. "When I tell players all the time I want to tear them off the floor -- I want them to play that hard -- she represents that."


Quote:
Sides believes the Stars staff will play her at power forward, like Northwestern did, and develop her into a stretch four. "Her shot is OK," Sides said. "Her defense is going to get better when she guards players on the perimeter. I think you'll see her move out on the perimeter -- not now but in the years to come."

Coffey's on the same page: "I was put in a very interesting role. I have the ability to do everything. So, I had a taste of being on the wing, being on the block, guarding wings, guarding post players -- I was able to feel every position out because I had the freedom to do so."

Plum is now on the SAS roster so that is good news. I can't believe they would trade her. Nice story about Coffey. If she can play the 5 anything like Young did SAS will be a whole new team. VJ and her staff have a ton of post players to sort out before the season starts. The back court should be a lot easier to figure out.
