I thought Whitcomb might need to show she can run minutes at point guard to have a chance of making the roster/being a rotation player.

Sami is good in the pick n roll which suits the flow offense.

Yep, I agree. That's the position other than SG that she can potentially provide some value. I could definitely see her alongside Loyd while Sue is on the bench. She can run a good pick and roll down here. Will be interesting to see how well she copes with bigger and quicker defenders (not just on her, but also on her passing targets) in the WNBA.

WNBA Overseas Report: March 28

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

Quote:
Ramu Tokashiki, Seattle Storm

Tokashiki is the face of women’s basketball in Japan, and earlier this month she completed another dominant season in her home country. With Tokashiki leading the way, JX-Eneos Sunflowers went undefeated throughout the regular season and tournament play, capturing trophies for the league title and the All-Japan championship. Tokashiki’s numbers dipped a bit from the previous two years when she led the league in scoring, but she still led the league in field goal percentage (61.5) and blocks (2.3 per game). That helped her earn a third consecutive MVP award.

Japan ace Tokashiki ready for Australia to raise the level

http://www.fiba.com/news/japan-ace-tokashiki-ready-for-australia-to-raise-the-level

Quote:
"I think having Australia will raise the level of Asia as a whole and we like the challenge of the number one team in Oceania competing against the number one team in Asia. It will be a pleasure to be able to compete with teams such as Australia, a nation that we could have only competed against previously in major global competitions.

"Having world class teams playing in Asia will also be uplifting for us in our continuing challenge to win a medal at the Olympic Games."


Quote:
"I look forward to the chance of possibly playing with them and I also hope that there will be more Japanese WNBA players in the future, just like Australia have. I believe that this would increase the level of our respective national teams by playing in the WNBA. For example, I was able to adapt to the height of the China national team and there was not as much fear as before."


Quote:
"I believe it's my destiny to perform and show the level of a WNBA player in continuing to win titles in and with Japan. I do not want to back down from the challenges from any other players that want to beat me. By building up the winning feeling with my team-mates of JX-ENEOS, it can also lead to the team's players being successful with the national team.

"I also want to continue working hard to become a key player with Seattle and lead the team to the WNBA Play-Offs - as well as trying to be one of the best five players in the world," concluded Tokashiki.

It doesn't seem like Wright or Bishop will be back with the Storm as they're not re-signed. Thoughts on who else they might bring in? Storm currently look like:

PG: Bird/O'Neill
SG: Loyd/Mosqueda-Lewis/Quinn
SF: Clark/O'Hea/Whitcomb
PF: Stewart/Tokashiki
C: Langhorne/Swords


I think O'neil just lost her job to Peterson

With training camp opening in a week, Ramu Tokashiki is already in Seattle getting her time zone reset. Alysha Clark is tweeting about some personal skills development. Breanna Stewart's in Aruba. Sue Bird, Jenna O'Hea and Noelle Quinn didn't go overseas and Sami Whitcomb, Carolyn Swords, Jewell Loyd and Crystal Langhorne are already done with their seasons. Only Kaleena Mosqueda-Lewis and Nikki Greene are still playing and both would likely report to camp late.

They have 15 players on their roster (17 on the WNBA page but Monica Wright and Abby Bishop are not returning). The biggest issue they face is that many of the players have not played for months and it will take a little time to regain their touch.

3 people will be cut from this:

PG: Sue Bird/Noelle Quinn/Alexis Peterson/Jennifer O'Neill
SG: Jewell Loyd/Kaleena Mosqueda-Lewis/Sami Whitcomb
SF: Alysha Clark/Jenna O'Hea
PF: Breanna Stewart/Ramu Tokashiki
C: Crystal Langhorne/Carolyn Swords/Nikki Greene/Lanay Montgomery

Likely one cut would be a center and one would be a PG. I'm betting they keep one of Greene/Montgomery so the last two cuts come down to Quinn, O'Neill, Mosqueda-Lewis and Whitcomb. Quite the interesting set of options.

Their 3 cuts should b O'Neill, Greene & Montgomery. I'd prefer it if they dumped Quinn & kept Montgomery.

Yeah, I edited the post to say I expected them to keep 3 centers if they look like they can be developed. I don't expect O'Neill to stick and Quinn's future depends on whether Peterson picks things up relatively quickly and whether they think the other SGs can cover so they can slide Jewell to PG. That's why O'Hea and Clark are so useful - versatility and veteran savvy when you pair them with younger players.

They looked so much more comfortable last season once they reacquired Quinn so that Loyd no longer had to slide over. So I'd be surprised if they dumped the security blanket of Quinn. But they look awfully perimeter-heavy if they keep Bird, Loyd, Clark, Peterson, Quinn, KML, O'Hea and Whitcomb. So that final cut that gets them down to 12 could be a little tricky, barring injuries/trades to simplify things.

Quinn, Peterson, O'Hea, Mosqueda-Lewis, or Whitcomb
Whitty better show up!

Hence my comment that so much depended on Peterson. If she picks it up, they might consider dropping Quinn. But otherwise, they'll need to feel ok about Loyd moving over or keep Quinn and either drop both the young posts or make a decision over KML/Whitcomb/O'Hea. I'm rather hoping KML comes in in shape to make it a difficult choice.

It's a nice problem to have.

Seattle Storm Issues Statement on Sue Bird

Quote:
“Sue underwent a left knee scope earlier this month. At this point, she is not participating in camp; her rehab and progression are on schedule. Her timetable for participation in camp is not set, but we are expecting her back at full strength soon.”

http://storm.wnba.com/news/seattle-storm-issues-statement-sue-bird/

I wonder about the timing of this scope. Why not do it earlier? She didnt play overseas or was she only recently bothered by her knee because she upped her training sessions to get ready for the season

Agreed it's weird she waited to have this done now. But they seem hopefully she'll be ready by May 13.

I'll be looking forward to Media Day so I can see Carolyn Swords in a Storm uniform.

Here's hoping she gets a card in this year's TC set.

Don't count Peterson out of anything...she doesn't quit. W/o Bird, she might end up starting. She's a tiger.

Terrible news for seattle.It's never minor when a 14 year,36 year old veteran has their knee scoped,especially only one month before the season starts,a short season at that.S.Bird was my biggest concern coming into this season for the storm.Big setback for seattle.This could cost them a spot in the playoffs.

I think people are overreacting to the Bird situation, unless they weren't able to find and fix the problem. They rarely give us details like that.

Quinn though looks in as good of shape as I've ever seen her. Make Maya envious of those muscles.




I noticed in my last depth chart I have Lanay Montgomery as a lock. WTH? Might have to revisit that. That doesn't seem like a good situation.

http://www.seattletimes.com/sports/storm/storm-coach-jenny-boucek-pleased-with-first-day-of-practice/

Quote:
(On not having Bird for practice) “It’s a challenge and it’s an opportunity. I’ve been working with Sue off and on now for – what is it? – 14 years. It’s a comfort zone for me. She’s obviously one of the best point guards to ever play the game. I think the best point guard to ever play. Not having her out there is a little bit of a challenge because she has a way of modeling things and bringing out the best in people. And so we didn’t have that on the court. But it’s also an opportunity because Sue is not unfortunately going to be able to play forever. And we’ve got now players that are going to need to grow into bigger roles and bigger leadership voices. So it’s a challenge on one hand, and it’s a great opportunity for our team.”

Seattle finished sub .500 in 2016 with 3 all-league players......any slippage from Bird could send them into the lottery,and that might not be a bad thing.Peterson is a low I.Q undersized pg.Quinn shot 27% last season.

Missing the playoffs and getting a top 4 pick wouldn't be the worst outcome for seattle.

I should've been more specific.I wasn't talking about Peterson's intelligence.I was referring to her basketball IQ.

Peterson's shot selection is subpar.She does an inadequate job of setting up her teammates.The ball sticks to her hands(Dibble,dribble,dribble).Peterson racked up a high number of assist,but that's only because she had a high usage rate.Passing the basketball was secondary.She averaged 19 fg attempts per game.Peterson's a combo guard.I believe she can develop into a instant offense player of the bench,but starting pg ?...I doubt it.

She assisted 42.5% of her teammates' baskets this season.

I think Zune's a bit harsh on her. I'll be interested to see how it works out. When I saw Syr, I thought she did quite a nice job and played within herself. Sometimes a player dribbles a lot because that is what the coach wants. I thought she picked her spots pretty well. And she had pretty good games even when the team lost. Steady, which is something I like to see, especially in a PG.

You mean like when she single handedly shot her team into oblivion against Georgia Tech?

10-37 shooting, 2-16 from the arc, 5 assists, 5 turnovers, 4 fouls.

EVERY spot is HER spot.

I thought Zune wasn't far off.

She may end up making Ariel Powers look downright generous with the ball.

I found it very hard to evaluate Peterson. So, much of her production comes off turnovers caused by the Syracuse pressure defense. When the Orange aren't able to create turnovers, their offense can become very stagnant. It often ends up being Sykes going one-on-one and everybody else hoisting 3's. Because Peterson has the ball and is a star, she does more hoisting than most. Is that her fault or the coach? We know Hillsman is a strong proponent of the statistical theory that you should shoot mostly layups or three's. We saw that last year when Brianna Butler tossed up 415 3Pt attempts or almost 11 per game. It was all with Quentin's blessing.

The problem is that it's too easy to look at gaudy numbers and think someone who hoisted a ton of shots under Hillsman can also play in a disciplined system against bigger faster players who play defense. Speaking of Butler, you don't see her in the League, do you?

I agree. That's why for me Peterson was one of many hard to assess players in a low conviction draft. On the one hand, you have to respect the consistency of performance, putting up good numbers game after game -- usually with decent efficiency. But you wonder if she isn't just a product of that particular system. For me, watching Peterson was kind of like watching Osahor. Night after night, you can pretty much pencil in great numbers -- nothing to complain about performance-wise -- but in the end, you're still not convinced.

High usage rate.......Peterson got most of her assist from one on one drive and kick plays(Odyssey Sim type assist).There's nothing wrong with creating individual offense when the shot clock is about to expire.However,hero ball accounts for a high percentage of Peterson's offense.I prefer pg's who play within the offense,and involve their teammates.She also has bad body language when things go bad,Something I noticed during the uconn game.

Go back and watch the 1st quarter of the syracuse/uconn tournament game.Peterson's shot selection and pass recognition was very underwhelming.She absolutely killed syracuse in the 1st quarter.

Play by play 1st qt-Peterson:


missed jumper
Turnover
Missed layup
Turnover
Turnover
Turnover
made jumper
missed three pointer
missed jumper


This wasn't great defense by uconn,it was poor decision making on the part of Peterson.

You mean like when she single handedly shot her team into oblivion against Georgia Tech?

10-37 shooting, 2-16 from the arc, 5 assists, 5 turnovers, 4 fouls.

EVERY spot is HER spot.

I thought Zune wasn't far off.

She may end up making Ariel Powers look downright generous with the ball.

There may end up being a home for Powers. I just hope it's not on a team I root for. I doubt if it will be on a successful team.

She's a dead end with the ball.

Well, hopefully we get to see what Petey can/can't do. I agree she was a bit hard to assess just coming from the team/style of play that Hillsman uses.

As far as Powers go, I'm toward Art's end of the spectrum, but will give her another season before being too harsh. She never seems to pass the ball and doesn't choose her shots very well, but she is athletic and active Wink We'll see if she's matured a bit in year two. A lot of these girls have been the go-to player their whole career so it takes them awhile to realize their teammates may be as good as or better than they are, so that from a team standpoint it behooves them to share the ball.

You left off the negative assist-to-turnover ratio.

Patience is a very lost art around here it seems.

This is something only afforded to some players, as I discovered.

She will not get a lot of playing time. Heck she might not even make the team. Quinn Loyd and maybe even Ohea will take up the ball up the court whenever Birdy sits

I don't suppose we could keep images from 600-700 wide?

Does this Storm have the depth to be a contender?

http://www.seattletimes.com/sports/storm/does-this-storm-have-the-depth-to-be-a-contender/

Quote:
“I’m not going to say we were overconfident or anything like that, but we controlled the first half and felt pretty good about that,” Loyd said. “Then all of sudden, we kind of all looked at each other and was stunned by what was happening. We couldn’t really figure out what happened to us.”

Atlanta shut down Seattle in the second half with an unorthodox box-and-1 defense, in which the Dream assigned a player to shadow Stewart and utilized a zone defense with the remaining four players.


Quote:
“But for us to get to where we want to be, no question we need our young stars to continue growing," Bird chirped. "Jenny likes to say we need our role players to be stars in their roles. … But yeah, on paper we stack up against anybody.”

I'm a STH and just learned that the Storm has added a "general admission family zone" that includes the back of my section where kids are encouraged to "cheer as loud as you can." I can only think that now every game has the potential to be like Kids Day. Am I unreasonable to be pissed about this? I definitely would have looked into moving my seat if I'd known about it.
