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.

per their Twitter: The Phoenix Mercury have signed former second-round pick Katherine Plouffe to a training camp contract.

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

Michelle Plouffe was the 19th pick by Seattle in 2014

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!

True that. I think this is going to be a great drinking year for the brigade. It will take a lot of alcohol to watch the mess that will be Phoenix. Wink
