This might be a hint that Laney isn't going anywhere.

CHI now has three Rutgers players: Pondexter, Laney, Copper. I'm now wondering why they didn't go for Vaughn instead of Dolson. Yeah, age.... I know. Could CHI be keeping their eye on the waiver wire for Hollivay? Wink

Reunite Faulkner with Pokey and get Poison Pill in return? Gotta stick with the Rutgers theme. Wink

I'd do Jonquel Jones for #2 in a heartbeat as a Sky fan. I know the Sun wouldn't even consider that deal though..

Id Do It Too , kind of benefits both sides . 2 young post players with high ceilings . Jones vs Coates vs B. Jones ....I still like Jonquel though so the sun would be losing this trade

Carlene Mitchell pretty much destroyed the UCSB program in her four years -- don't know how much that means at this level, though.

curious who Chicago's looking at for #2(Plum?, DeShields?). I think they also let Breland go somewhere else.

PG: Vandersloot/Faulkner
SG: Pondexter/Quigley/#2 pick
SF: Young/Laney
PF: Dolson/dos Santos/#9 pick?
C: Boyette/Parker

At this point chicago should just trade Cappie for a draft pick(#6 or #4 pick)or young player with upside(Howard).Cappie has reached her peak but she can still help a title contending basketball team.

I think that is right. Trade Cappie to a contender that she could help in a smaller role and go full rebuild.

Exactly....how can you effectively develop a young SG if Cappie is playing 27+minutes per game.Not acquiring Meesseman as part of the Delledonne trade has put chicago in rebuild mode.

No, the Sun wouldn't consider that deal. Miller stated that he had offers for Jones from every team and said no to them all. She'd most likely be the #1 draft pick if she were graduating this year instead of last.

It'll be interesting if the Sky opt to keep Dolson or potentially trade her for a SF or PF. Thoughts?

I assume they got her to keep her. I'm not sure Boyette will ever be able to play more than 20 min/game so they need a solid 2nd 5. Guessing they're hoping Breland/Dos Santos will be adequate at the PF. While I don't think much of T. Young as a starter, Pokey obviously did and perhaps Stocks does as well. I'm not convinced they actually think they need a SF. They're hoping one of the Rutger girls works out for that position, at least as a backup...and perhaps they think they can play Laney and Copper together as the 3/4 (like they were at Rutgers) at least in a backup capacity. Personally I think both of them have pretty good potential. We'll see how they develop.

Copper is the bigger of the two and played PF in college. Not saying they will put her there for long stretches, because I think Breland and Dos Santos and perhaps Parker will be the PF.

I absolutely love Copper but shes a bit on the Thin Side to be guarding the likes of EDD and or Messeman though ?

Mostly my point was in answer to the question about keeping Dolson. I think the Sky roster is pretty much set. They have 5 posts, 3 SF, 4 good guards. I assume they take another guard at #2 and whoever they get at #9 will likely have a hard time making the roster unless she can compete with Parker/Dos Santos/Laney.

I say trade, or at least shop. Center is their lowest need with Boyette a future all-star and 3 others on the roster behind her. Three of the four Chicago centers from 2016 are more mobile than Dolson. If they cut her, I would say drop Ericka de Souza, since she most closely mirrors Dolson, but it looks like they already have. She does not appear on their roster.

I'm guessing that Dolson and Boyette will be playing together. Dolson will be in the high post on offense, and Boyette the low, Boyette will guard the rim, or the other teams best post. Let say Chicaco is playing Seattle Boyette will be on Stewart, Dolson on Swords, against Ny Boyette on Charles Dolson on Stokes or Vaughn. Even though they are both technically center Dolson has the skills on offense and Boyette on defense that they can still work together on the court IMO.

Yeah, I agree. I think Copper is more of a 2/3 at this level than a 3/4. Rutgers only used her at the 4 to help attack zone defenses, much as they used Laney they previous season. The Sky have enough power forwards if dos Santos and Parker are retained with Breland.

I don't see Dallas making this move because they need consistent scoring which Christmas provides. If Young is included, then that means that Powers will be relied upon for scoring which I am not sure if she is quite ready for that. Breland would be a good fit because Dallas likes to play uptempo and Breland is very mobile. If her outside shot was respectable, then she can fill in for the loss of PP to free agency.

Dallas would have plenty of scoring.Diggins,Sims,Johnson,Breland & Powers is more than enough,and they'd still have the #3 pick in the draft.

Her 2016 PIE was higher (9.9) than either Breland (9.1) or Young (7.2) but very close for a two for one.

1.Dallas has Powers waiting in the wings.

2.Young would make up for the defensive lost of Christmas.

3.Breland is a legit 2-way player.She can postup,hit the open jump shot,and provide interior defense.

4.Breland would give Dallas more balance:

Offensive guards(Diggins,Sims)
Offensive wing(Powers)
Offensive post(Johnson,Breland)

But most sky fans think Young is a bum,right ?

I tell you what,we'll throw in the #11 pick.

I see Powers more as a SG then a SF. Also not convinced that Breland is a good post defender. Maybe decent but that's about it. They have Glory Johnson who i think is a better player then Breland so they dont really need both (if she can stay healthy) Glory just needs structure and discipline. A coach like Agler, Reeve or Mike T would really help her IMO..

The way Dallas' roster is currently constructed Powers has no choice but to play most of her minutes at SF anyway.Besides,if Clark,Christmas,KML & Zellous Can play SF at 5'10/5'11,Powers can definitely fill the position at 6'0.

But there you have the problem. IMO Sims should be traded to make room for Powers to play at the 2 position. All their guards are too ball dominant and also not good defenders. Sims trade value will drop even further if she has a similar season again.

I agree with you 100%.Sims is first on my trade checklist.I'd be willing to do a Sims for Breland & Quigley trade.Unfortunately chicago is 2-3 deep at both backcourt positions.Adding another ball dominate guard would be overkill for the sky.I'm still hoping for a Dallas/NY trade:

Sims for Stokes.

Sims & #3 pick for Stokes & Rodgers.

Sims for Rodgers & Vaughn.

Christmas & #3 for Stokes.

But there you have the problem. IMO Sims should be traded to make room for Powers to play at the 2 position. All their guards are too ball dominant and also not good defenders. Sims trade value will drop even further if she has a similar season again.


I agree with you 100%.Sims is first on my trade checklist.I'd be willing to do a Sims for Breland & Quigley trade.Unfortunately chicago is 2-3 deep at both backcourt positions.Adding another ball dominate guard would be overkill for the sky.I'm still hoping for a Dallas/NY trade:

Sims for Stokes.

Sims & #3 pick for Stokes & Rodgers.

Sims for Rodgers & Vaughn.

Christmas & #3 for Stokes.


Or just Sims 10/11 for Stokes

Dallas is a shitty defensive team so why would they give up their best and most versatile defender..

Good defensive teams are rarely dependent on one individual defender. Usually it has to do with the system. Most of the best defensive teams don't have great individual defenders overall.

Dallas main issue is defense so if they want to improve that then they need to get better defenders OR get their current players(Glory, Sims, Diggins) to play better defense by using or creating a better defensive system and have them buy into it completely.

They are sticking with their coach so i dont see much change in having a better defensive system in place. So they have to go with the option of getting better defensive players and not trade away their best defensive player.

1.Dallas has Powers waiting in the wings.

2.Young would make up for the defensive lost of Christmas.

3.Breland is a legit 2-way player.She can postup,hit the open jump shot,and provide interior defense.

4.Breland would give Dallas more balance.offensive guards(Diggins,Sims),offensive wing(Powers),Offensive post(Johnson,Breland)


I see Powers more as a SG then a SF. Also not convinced that Breland is a good post defender. Maybe decent but that's about it. They have Glory Johnson who i think is a better player then Breland so they dont really need both (if she can stay healthy) Glory just needs structure and discipline. A coach like Agler, Reeve or Mike T would really help her IMO..



Breland can actually play center. Pokey used her at center a few times when Elena was in at the 4. Breland can play the 5 while Glory plays the 4.
It will give Dallas a different look. It is not like Dallas throws the ball in the post anyway.

I do agree that Sims or Diggins need to either be traded or one of them come off of the bench with Erin Phillips and play off of the ball. In my opinon, Diggins plays better off of the ball than Sims.

If Sims is traded, where would she go and what can they get for her?

why would Chicago give away their starting PF? For Sims who would have a hard time getting playing time. And I think it's funny that you want to dump Sims because you think she's not very good, but you want to get good players in return. Well, I guess it's the same with all fans everywhere.

I was referring to NYL's Stokes I think sims is an exceptional player All star guard . She just doesnt fit with dallas . Sims & Stokes have about the same value . Stokes maybe just a Tad bit more upside though . Thus the reason Picks 10/11 . But maybe your response was in reference to breland im not sure

Laney was selected 17th overall in the 2015 WNBA Draft by the Chicago Sky. After her rookie season with the Sky, Laney signed with the Perth Lynx of the WNBL (Women's National Basketball League) where she averaged 15 points per game, with eight rebounds and four assists in 27 games.

She returned to the Sky for the 2016 WNBA season but tore her anterior cruciate ligament in her knee during a game in June, and couldn't play for the rest of the season.

However, she has been cleared by the medical staff for one-on-one workouts and expects to return to the team in about a month.

"My rookie year was amazing," said Laney "We had a really good run and to be around such great players and learn from them is an incredible opportunity."

However, one WNBA superstar on her team, Elena Delle Donne who is also from Delaware, has just been traded to the Washington Mystics, so that will be a difficult to position to fill.

"Elena was a great teammate and a great person, and I wish her all the best," said Laney. "Right now, I'm looking forward to rejoining the team and working hard and contributing to help us win."

It's only Young, Copper & Laney fighting for the SF spots. I'll be interesting to know who they're looking at drafting with the #2 pick. I'd assuming someone like DeShields. Right now the Sky look like:

PG: Vandersloot/Faulkner
SG: Pondexter/Quigley/#2 pick
SF: Young/Copper/Laney
PF: Dolson/Breland/dos Santos
C: Boyette/Parker

I would have Laney as the backup to Young at the beginning of the season with the intention to start her before half the season is over.
