Was Lavender an all-star the year Parker wasn't on the team?

Boyette for Lavender

Maybe Boyette's rookie contract would allow LA to keep 12 and Lavender can really play the 4 or the 5 so might pair better with Dolson? A starting Lavender might be able to get you 15 and 9 a night. I'm not sure I would want to give up Boyette if I was CHicago but maybe the coach wants more offense.

Coates and Breland for Glory Johnson

Maybe Dallas was interested in Coates and that was one of the reason Chicago took her at #2 before Dallas could grab her and Breland is ready to start and maybe Dallas is just ready to move on from Glory. Glory starting alogside Boyette with Dolson off the bench isn't a bad post rotation, and GloJo might be ready to star in a new setting. Dallas could end up in the lottery again this season (which might not be the worst thing) and complete their collection of NCAA championship winning SC grads with Aja Wilson, and be pretty strong come 18.

Coates & 2018 1st Rounder For GloJo !

Amber Stocks is quickly finding her way to my shit list. Screws up a draft day trade allegedly to get Plum and now has a thrombus of centers and allegedly holds out on a trade that can make both of my favorite teams better. One of these chronic bottom dwellers who are always a bridesmaid better end up with the overall number 1 and Wilson next year or I'll be torqued.

The thing about Plum is that she's along the line of Diggins in terms of being a star promoter. Very outgoing and friendly, and the cuteness helps too. So it's not just her playing ability but includes the ability to bring in fans just because she is who she is. She's already become a fan fav in San Antonio. It's hard to put a price tag on that.

With Amber, I'm anxious to see who she waives. Don't know her well enough to know where she's coming from, but basically, she's shown signs of being a wildcard and therefore, she could surprise us. I hope she doesn't.

With the first rights on a waived player, SAS could get lucky.

I was thinking this was about Amber Harris til you stated who she waives Laughing . Im anxious to see if Amber harris can finally show the potential she use to have upon entering this league. If she is still as lazy as a couch potato im blocking her on IG. Embarassed Laughing

With butter, bacon bits and chives...

Hampton, Epps, Harris, Ndour, Cooper and Copper would be my guess for players in the waiver barrel. If she doesn't choose from this barrel, it could get interesting.

2017 WNBA Preview: Chicago Sky life after Elena Delle Donne

http://summitthoops.com/2017/05/09/2017-wnba-preview-chicago-sky/

Quote:
The biggest question, quite literally, is at the five. The Sky stole Imani Boyette with the tenth pick in the 2016 draft, and she quickly translated her collegiate skills—rim protection, rebounding and efficient scoring—to the pro game.


Disclosure: Boyette works for/with Megdal, so Boyette analysis will tend to be on the glowing side.

Quote:
Dolson does some things Boyette doesn’t, with greater shooting range at this point in her career, and greater proficiency passing the ball. But neither one is anything other than a center, and the decision to play Boyette at the four is a curious one, since Boyette’s rim protection skills are unparalleled by virtually anyone else.


Virtually, except for Griner?

Quote:
The Sky then compounded this surplus by using the second overall pick on Alaina Coates, a classic five out of South Carolina. Coates will miss most of 2017, but the larger point is that they had few more important assets this winter than the lottery pick, also acquired for Delle Donne, and spent it on the position where they’d already double-booked.


Oops, but these things tend to work themselves out.

Quote:
There are knock-on effects of this depth, though. For now, Boyette at the four and Dolson at the five pushes Jessica Breland, one of the true underrated players in the WNBA, to either a backup role or an oversized three. The 6’3 Breland is—stop me if you’ve heard this—an elite rim protector and defensive rebounder.


Quote:
Breland will be therefore pushing Tamera Young, another rugged defensive contributor at the three or four for minutes at the remaining wing spot. This creates fewer opportunities for players like Kahleah Copper, an impressive young scoring wing who can defend and is probably best-suited at the three


Copper is so impressive that he had her pegged as a third round pick in the 2016 draft Surprised

Quote:
Courtney Vandersloot, of course, is the starting point guard when she is in a Sky uniform. But she is also a recently-naturalized Hungarian, and will be playing for Hungary this summer in the European championships. That opened the door for Jamierra Faulkner, whose stats on a tempo-free basis compared well to the league’s best point guards, but she is expected to miss the season with a torn ACL.


Quote:
That leaves Tori Jankoska, the team’s other first round pick in the 2017 draft, and Makayla Epps, the team’s third round pick. Jankoska could surprise—she did a bit of everything at Michigan State, with an off-the-charts basketball IQ and underrated defensive game. Epps, meanwhile, was more of a combo guard than true floor leader with Kentucky. But they’ll both have to do plenty on on-the-job training.


If CHI picked her at #9, she shouldn't surprise that much. The surprise was that she went that high in the first place.

Quote:
“This is a hard league to play in,” Stocks said. “And equipping ourselves with the right tools, we’re just trying to stay in contention.”

This entire article just made me rethink chicago from 8 all the way to 12. This team will be horrible , Since when has breland been a rim protector and elite rebounder ? Arrow Rolling Eyes

https://www.fanragsports.com/womens/2017-wnba-players-watch-chicago-sky-frontcourt

Quote:
Here’s the primary issue: Both players are “pure” centers. Neither is a good fit for the power forward position. Though Dolson can hit the 3-point shot, she doesn’t have the foot speed to adequately defend the more athletic and mobile power forwards in the WNBA. While Boyette may be more likely to grind through 20-plus minutes of guarding the 4, the Sky would be taking her out of the paint, neutralizing her elite rim protection and putting her out of position as a rebounder.

I wonder if Stocks has thought about having Dolson coming off the bench and basically splitting time with Boyette at center? Start Breland at PF. I doubt having Dolson play significant minutes at PF will work out and I firmly believe once Coates is healthy, someone is getting traded.

Im with Toad , its like Stocks didnt think about what she was getting before she took the players. Dolson is clearly not a 4 and neither is boyette. Playing breland at the 3 will be a disaster as we saw with Pokey when she had fowles , EDD & Breland lineup. Dolson or Boyette will have to go when Alaina comes to play which may not be til next season from what i hear but either way this team is all kinds of jacked up .

Boyette learns from experience, ready for enhanced role with Sky

http://chicago.suntimes.com/sports/boyette-learns-from-experience-ready-for-enhanced-role-with-sky/

Quote:
Boyette finds herself surrounded with more around her in the post. The Sky acquired 6-5 center Stefanie Dolson in the Delle Donne trade from the Washington Mystics. They also drafted center Alaina Coates out of South Carolina with the No. 2 pick to help solidify their post presence.

While Boyette has a reputation as a tenacious post defender, an offense installed by first-year coach and general manager Amber Stocks will push Boyette and broaden her horizons.

“I’m being challenged to do things every day that I’m not necessarily comfortable with,” Boyette said. “It’s a learning curve for a lot of us. But the thing with me is that I’ve always kind of been very happy with my role.


Quote:
“Imani has improved her ability to hit the outside shot, thus opening op the lane for her to continue to score at the rim.”


Looks like Boyette will be changing her role.

Totally unbiased opinions and observations from tonight's open practice:

Copper is by far the team's best athlete

Jankoska is a total grinder

Amber Harris is still Amber Harris

Breland at the 3 is a real thing

Parker still doesn't have a post move going left but is oodles more confident overall

Keep in mind of course that most of this was coming against YMCA guys, so make of it what you will.

So Stocks is demanding more from the players,and holding them accountable at the same time.Boyette has improved her jump shot in just one offseason,or at the very least,worked on it.

Sky's Cheyenne Parker ready to surprise people

http://www.chicagotribune.com/sports/basketball/ct-sky-media-day-notes-spt-0511-20170510-story.html

Quote:
"Cheyenne Parker is really going to surprise some people," Pondexter said. "Her training camp has been spectacular. She has grown tremendously. I think she's going to surprise a lot of people. She's really expanded her game."


Quote:
"It's been my best camp obviously," Parker said. "I think I am going to surprise people. The past two seasons I was still on a really tight leash. Now the leash is completely off. I've been working on every aspect of my game, offensively and defensively. It should be a complete 180. Just my aggression offensively."


Quote:

Coates comeback? New coach Amber Stocks was vague about when — or if — rookie Alaina Coates would play this season.

Stocks said Coates' cast was removed recently but she has not been medically cleared to travel and hasn't joined the team.


Quote:
Center Imani Boyette said rules relaxed under former coach Pokey Chatman have been tightened under Chatman's successor, Stocks.

"Everybody's here on the dot; everybody's here on time," Boyette said. "She's very detail-oriented. I think she's going to be good for us. We need a little discipline."


Quote:
Former DePaul forward Keisha Hampton has earned the nickname "Sharpshooter" from her new teammates.

I haven't seen where Coates has signed a contract to play for Chicago. Does anyone know if she's planning to sit out the season, waiting for her draft rights to be traded or did she sign and I missed seeing it?

True, but she can't play overseas for that to work. That means no income or high level basketball for a whole year.

Rehabbing the injury could be her main focus so playing overseas might not be as big of a deal to her. Ive noticed alot of the younger wnba players are not going overseas at the rate of the majority . Year after year

I haven't seen where Coates has signed a contract to play for Chicago. Does anyone know if she's planning to sit out the season, waiting for her draft rights to be traded or did she sign and I missed seeing it?

Those young players at least earned a paycheck for the WNBA season(s) that they played. The more prominent ones may have endorsement contracts that make overseas income less necessary. On the other side of the spectrum, fringe young players may simply have trouble getting a job. With much of the world having economic problems, there's less money overseas. That means fewer opportunities and the ones that exist pay less than before.

Bottom line is that no one I can think of has ever decided to re-enter the draft. There's always a first time, but I don't sense that Coates has that kind of intrepid rebel/pioneer personality.

And the significant majority of players are still going somewhere overseas to play.

http://sky.wnba.com/news/chicago-sky-roster-set-2017-season-opener/

Is this a new thing this season where teams can have players on opening day rosters and suspended those not yet available? I don't recall this being an option in past seasons. Sky have temp. suspended Vandersloot & Quigley. Faulkner was put on a full season suspension due to her injury.

To start:

PG: Pondexter?/Epps
SG: Copper?/Jankoska
SF: Young/Cooper/Hampton
PF: Dolson/Breland/Harris
C: Boyette/Parker

I'd guess and say Jankoska gets cut once Quigley arrives & either Cooper or Hampton get cut once Sloot arrives. Harris sticks until Coates is healthy.

No, not at all. But you do need the cap room to do it - the total theoretical full season salaries of all 14, in this case, have to fit under the cap. Which is why Chicago and San Antonio are carrying extra players to start the season, and LA aren't.

Yeah, that coaching change was odd. I wonder what circumstances could have influenced Sky ownership to make such a short-sighted and panicky move...?
