she's still trying to make a go at the WNBA. Hopefully she's rebounded from her injuries. Could be a nice addition to the Mercury.


Are you talking about her injuries from 2010? Surprised


Even when fully healthy, Danielle McCray was complete and utter garbage during her years with the Sun. She won't make the roster, and if she does, the GM needs to be fired immediately. I don't even understand why they'd give her another shot. Epic fail.

An illustration of exactly how desperate the Mercury are to pull a rabbit out of their hat on the wing.

Losing Bonner and Taylor in the same year (plus another year on Taurasi's ticking clock) is a hell of a hit to take all in one go.


Desperate is right :O

yet no sign of re-signing Bone. I have to wonder what kind of locker room problems she brings to the team & how bad of a teammate she might be. If Bone isn't brought back, George is the defacto back-up center.

General question, do offer sheets have to be publicly announced?

No, there have been plenty over the years that only emerged when the sheet was matched or not. But the League has been a little better the last couple of years in letting people know than they were previously (like with the Krystal Thomas signing earlier this season).

The team only gets four days to match though, so it's not like we'd be waiting an age anyway.

Yeah, basically none of the other 11 teams have made an offer for Bone. I'm thinking she stays with Phoenix as they have no backup for Griner right now.

Well no one's made an offer she liked enough to sign. Bit of a leap to say no one's offered anything at all.

Um, wasn't it the other Plouffe that was drafted? Think they got that wrong. Or signed the wrong one Smile.

I don't know what pick the Mercury have for the draft but maybe they should consider Chantell Osahor. She would be a great post player to spell BG. She proves you don't have to be tall. She passes well, makes free throws and can shoot the 3. She leads in rebounds! Also. she is from Phoenix. Phoenix needs someone who can get them more rebounds!

According to wnba.com's draft board, PHX's first pick is #29, so have fun with that. Will PHX bother having a draft party?

Hilarious! Penicheiro responded to Phoenix's tweet with the correction. I wonder if Ticha represents one or the other.

They haven;t bother with a draft party since Griner so even if we had a first rounder we, the brigade, would just be watching on TV with our adult beverages and snark!

WNBA Overseas Report: March 28

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

Quote:
Diana Taurasi, Phoenix Mercury

The seven-time EuroLeague champion is on her way to earning more hardware this spring. Playing alongside other WNBA stars at UMMC Ekaterinburg – including Kristi Toliver, Emma Meesseman and Mercury teammate Brittney Griner – Taurasi is leading the squad with 18.3 points per game and shooting 45 percent from downtown in EuroLeague action. Aiming to repeat as champions, UMMC Ekaterinburg is scheduled to face Fenerbahce in the semifinals in mid-April. In the Russian league, Taurasi’s team went 19-1 in the regular season and will commence its semifinal series next week.

Griner, Toliver and Meesseman have all played key roles in UMMC Ekaterinburg’s season. They are averaging 16.6, 10.4, and 9.1 points per game, respectively, in EuroLeague play.


Quote:
Sonja Petrovic, Phoenix Mercury

Another player thriving in the EuroLeague is Taurasi’s teammate in Phoenix, Sonja Petrovic, who is playing with ZVVZ USK Praha. With Petrovic pacing the team at 17 points per game, ZVVZ USK Praha has cruised to the semifinals and will now take on a Dynamo Kursk squad that features WNBA stars Angel McCoughtry and Nneka Ogwumike. ZVVZ USK Praha is also in the semifinals of the Czech league, which begin Wednesday. With the help of fellow WNBA players Kia Vaughn, Marta Xargay, and Candice Dupree, Petrovic guided ZVVZ USK Praha to a perfect 22-0 regular season.

I'm guessing the Merc have a sign-and-trade ready for Bone, that's dependent on somebody falling into the other team's slot, maybe a 3 way to get a real normal Shooting Guard?

I'm thinking Bone for #10. Dallas is thin in the post and has two earlier round picks to play with PX I'm sure could work with any of the following at #10 A. Prince, A. Jones, A. Peterson (that is a a lot of Alexises) Epps, Sykes, maybe even Copper, Jankoska or Romero could fit?)

2017 PHOENIX MERCURY PRE-TRAINING CAMP ROSTER:

PG: DANIELLE ROBINSON, LEILANI MITCHELL, Yvonne Turner

SG: DIANA TAURASI, ALEX HARDEN

SF: SHAY MURPHY, STEPHANIE TALBOT, Danielle McCray

PF: CAMILLE LITTLE, Emma Cannon, Katherine Plouffe

C: BRITNEY GRINER, CAYLA GEORGE, JILLIAN ALLEYNE

CAPITALIZED ARE LIKELY LOCKS

My guess is McCray is the first cut, and Plouffe or Cannon is the second cut.

Harding and Taylor retired. Bass and Bonner are pregnant.

Xargay will play for her national team this summer, and take the season off.

Petrovic may do the same. Bone may also sit the season out.

Arizona State player Sophie Bruner could be a candidate for our 3rd round pick.

Both forward positions seem pretty shaky if Phoenix expects to challenge for a title.

I think the line-up of FLB, Drob, DT, Little and Griner will see some decent minutes.

DT at SG or PG is not a lot better defensively. Shay Murphy wasnt a great defender even before her serious injury so that isnt much better either..

She's better than those two midgets, but the issue here is the disastrous moves and trades that Sandy Brondello has made, I know Pitman is the GM but those trades made by the Mercury are a direct result of Brondello's input! Kelsey Bone trade last season was one of the worst trade made by any WNBA team in recent memory and it will be even worse if she doesn't play this year, Connecticut took her to the cleaners in that trade, it was so bad the Mercury made another trade and included a player they had traded to Connecticut and got her back (Jullian Alleyne) how dumb can you be! ha ha

I read that Taurasi suffered a possible hip injury in the last game in Russia. Hip injuries can linger, causing significant missed games. Will this impact the Mercury's upcoming season? Will the Mercury just decide to sit her out even if it's not a bad injury and tank again? I mean, Phoenix IS the shadiest team in the league and nothing would surprise me.

She could claim it's a serious injury. Me thinks Mercury are in the early stages of tanking this season.

The 2 year rule would work against them a bit, not that they won all that many games last year. I think SA has a big head start for No. 1 (9 games). Dallas has a 5 game head start. They again, they are pretty creative.

Exactly , the 2 year rule hopefully will rule them out unless there going for someone like Asia Durr or K. Brown in 19. ...They would have to literally be the worse merc team in history this season . Im Just waiting for the Diana is out for the season post to show up... Rolling Eyes

Taurasi doesn't have enough years left to be throwing them away in hope of a theoretical college kid. Although of course, if she doesn't give much of a crap about wnning another WNBA title, 'tanking' could coincide with 'rest' pretty comfortably.

I guess there is also the question of whether her overseas team is going to pay her to sit. If she sits for "free" it kind of kills her chance to get an overseas team to pay her to sit. She might just prefer to play but miss a lot games with dental appointments, toe nail fungus treatments and wart removal.

I'm sure it has nothing to with players or trades so this is just a fun thought not a real suggestion

sign and trade Bone and PX's 1st round pick next year for Cambage who has decided to show up and form a twin towers with Griner.
