I think you can have 15 players in training camp. If people report later to training camp you can have more. The Storm often did that with Bird coming in later

Or players like Bird can sit out just on the basis that they don't really need camp. I wonder if they can still be there, just not participate on court. And how does the league enforce the camp numbers? Seems like an honor system.

WNBA Overseas Report: March 28

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

Quote:
Jonquel Jones, Connecticut Sun

Jones chose to play in South Korea for her first season abroad, and the Sun forward made the most of the opportunity. She led the league in points (15.8 per game), rebounds (14.3) and blocks (2.Cool while helping Woori Bank win 33 of its 35 regular-season games. In the championship series, Jones went up against Sun teammate Alyssa Thomas, the leading scorer for Blue Minx. Thomas had an incredible Game 1 in the series – 21 points, 16 rebounds, seven assists and three steals – but it wasn’t enough as Woori Bank pulled out a narrow victory. An overtime win in Game 3 on March 20 sealed the title for Jones’ squad.

I'm thinking they take will take Alexis Jones from Baylor in the draft. Doubtful the Sun keep Kelly Faris but of course I keep saying that every year.

Quote:
“Do we keep [Chiney] on the roster and hope that she will get back at the end of the season or do you look at it realistically and understand that it’s probably doubtful that she will play this season and make the tough decision to suspend her?” Miller said.

Should Miller decide to suspend Ogwumike, it means the face of the franchise will not be around for the entire season. Should he keep her on the roster, the Sun will have to go with 11 players.

“The upcoming decision that we have regarding Chiney dominoes everything including the upcoming draft,” Miller said.


He struggles with these kinds of decisions.

Let's see, in her second season Chiney was out for the season with no chance of returning, and Donovan doesn't suspend her.

Now entering her fourth season with a little bit of a chance of returning, Miller is considering suspending her. I wonder how that would sit with Chiney. You spared the rod before. Now the child is spoiled.

Maybe they could help ease the pain of suspension by helping Chiney get a job doing color commentating for the Sun or elsewhere. There's not a ton of difference between her and Ros: yip, yip, yip!

Not suspending Chiney might mean the Faris era could be over. I'm sure that would weigh heavily on Miller. It could mean the Chong era would never have a chance to start should she be drafted by them. Or perhaps a shortened roster would compel Miller to deal Banham to an interested party. Miller, whatever you do, DO NOT suspend Chiney! Tears! Regrets!

Another factor is the Maven of Tanking now works for the Sun. With the juicy 2018 draft coming up, maybe her viewpoint will be that a shortened roster increases the team's chances of losing and thereby netting the team a better pick. In reality it probably won't make a ton of difference between winning and losing.

For the 2018 draft, I would lean towards doing just enough to make the playoffs and getting yourself the #5 or #6 pick. That won't get you A'ja Wilson, but you still get a very excellent player AND you still get to be in the playoffs.

Look at the 2016 Mercury. They barely made the playoffs, got the #5 pick, and they made a decent run in the playoffs. They parlayed that #5 pick into Danielle Robinson. Best of both worlds.

Young, Exciting Sun Ready for Draft, Training Camp

http://sun.wnba.com/news/young-exciting-sun-ready-draft-training-camp/

York is with Connecticut now? Confused

Quote:
“We’re really excited about Reshanda Gray,” Miller added. “She’s coming into camp motivated and ready to prove people wrong. We’re looking for Jonquel Jones to continue her strong finish to 2016.


Quote:
“Banham was never really healthy and gutted her way through some tough injuries before we shut her down,” said Miller. “She never was able to truly show what she is capable of.


Quote:
The addition of a young, tough post in Lynetta [Kizer], who is coming off her best season as a pro, will help after the loss of Chiney—a player you can’t really replace.”

Looking at the possible scenarios, from Jankoska to Wiese to Osahor, I hope CT gets Lindsay Allen.

the roster in Conn fills up fast

J. Thomas/Banham
Bentley/C. Williams
A. Thomas/Tuck
Kizer/Gray
J. Jones

That is 9 not including Peterson, Hamson, Adams, Stricklen, Faris, O'neil ? (is Jen O'neil in Conn) pick #8, #13, #16, #25 and C. Ogwumike

You need at least one more big preferably a center, and one more ball handler at least a kind of PG type add this to above and you've got 11, if you don't suspend Chiney you are done.

I would like to see Phonix get Osahor. She is a dantastic rebounder among other things. I know Phoenix has BG but she doesn't get a lot of rebounds and would make a difference there. Maybe she and DT could team up. Osahor is from Phoenix and maybe she would like to play at home. Just saying.

Which is why I think someone like Wiese or Peterson would be top priority. That post rotation isn't great but I'd rather have Tuck at the 4 than Banham or Bentley at the 1...they need another playmaker.

Even with the glut of post players Connecticut started last season with, Tuck was used as a 4 about 90% of the time. So that changes the balance a little. There's also Hightower to throw into the mix. They'd be silly to count on her at this point, but it's another guard/wing/pseudo-point-guard to add to the list.

I'd say at this stage the most likely group is:

J.Thomas/Banham
Bentley/C. Williams/Hightower
A.Thomas/Stricklen
Kizer/Tuck/Gray
J. Jones/(Kizer sliding)

...then suspend Chiney and add the #8 pick for the final spot. But I agree that it looks kinda crowded. Not necessarily good, but crowded. And it only gets more so when they take Chong at 13 or 16 and shoehorn her in as Faris Mark II...

McCall at #8, Chong at #16

J. Thomas/Banham/Chong
Bentley/C. Williams
A. Thomas/Stricklen
Kizer/Tuck/Gray
J. Jones/McCall

I think they would keep Stricklen who played for them last season under Miller than go with a 3rd rookie or Hightower. Do you really suspend Chiney though to open up that 12th spot?

The irony about keeping Chong as that fan favorite UConn appreciation player is they actually need a PG.

Or you could take Wiese at #8 and give her Stricklen's spot, and replace McCall with Hamson or Petersen, but McCall can play the 4 or the 5 and has a 3 pt shot, she could actually fit nicely in Conn.

As I noted above, CON could deal Banham to a very interested party to free up some space. I wonder how many fans of that team would object to dealing their first round in 2018 straight up.

Yes, the roster is crowded w/ mediocrity.

If Allen is on the board and they take Chong, I'm done. No more UConn mascots please.

Cooper and Jones are definitely taking some hopefuls jobs

J. Thomas/Banham
Bentley/C. Williams
A. Thomas/Cooper or Stricklen
Kizer/Tuck/Gray
J. Jone/B. Jones

that is 11 pay Chiney or keep those Huskie's fans happy with Faris, or slide Strick to the 2 guard spot.

Pretty clever of Miller. It looks like he left it up to Chiney whether or not she'd be suspended, but I'm sure she got the "12 players would be the best for the team" speech. A little guilt goes a long way.

Thrilled to hear this. So many players in the past have wanted out of Connecticut, but now we have Jasmine Thomas, Alex Bentley and now Chiney Ogwumike all signed to multi-year contracts. Glad to know that these players are happy to be in Connecticut. Even with Chiney's injury issues, every other team in the league would take her in an instant. Since Miller took over, the players seem happy for once. Getting rid of Kelsey Bone helped clear up the air in the locker room too. All the bad seeds have been disposed off.

Considering her injuries, I'm surprised it's multi-year. Sun betting everything on Chiney?

Faris should be gone. I think Adams makes the team assuming she's in better shape then when she arrive in San Antonio last season.

PG: J. Thomas/Banham
SG: Bentley/C. Williams/Stricklen
SF: A. Thomas/Tuck
PF: Kizer/Adams/Gray
C: J. Jones/B. Jones

Considering her injuries, I'm surprised it's multi-year. Sun betting everything on Chiney?

Last thing they need to worry about is capspace..

Connecticut Sun’s Rachel Banham healthy, ready to contribute

http://www.nhregister.com/sports/20170423/connecticut-suns-rachel-banham-healthy-ready-to-contribute

Quote:
“Chiney is a huge piece to our puzzle that we need, but we have a lot of good talent and young talent too,” Banham said. “Courtney came in (after being traded for Kelsey Bone) and was playing incredible, I can’t wait for Morgan to be back, JJ is great and her offseason has been great so I am looking forward to see how she does. There are veteran pieces, Jaz (Thomas) played great at the end of the year, she played better than anybody thought she was going to last year so that was exciting. We could be really good, we have to continue to grow, we have another year under our belts.”


Sounds like Tuck isn't ready yet?

Quote:
Sun coach and general manager Curt Miller said he plans to play it safe with Banham and Tuck in the early going even though both are expected to be good to go for the start of training camp. He knows that his team will be relying on the two of them so he isn’t going to push them too hard, too fast.

In the category of rumors that sound legit....
Bentley in a walking boot after tweaking ankle?
That doesn't sound too serious but....
Tuck had a scope 10 days ago? That might put her time line at like a month into the season. Something up with Tuck seems to be confirmed in the bolded part of the article in the previous post.

I think it is interesting that everyone seems to be sold on Morgan Tuck as a full-time 3 when she has literally never played anything but the 4.
