Who established her potential? She was the #10 pick.


At this point, I would say Atlanta did when they traded a lottery pick in a rich draft to get her.

Atl was in the middle of the pack when they made the trade, trading picks before you know what they are is always a risk but I'm guessing they thought the result of the trade would be slight improvement and ending slightly higher in the middle of the pack. If they landed at #6 in the playoffs and the pick ended up being #7 the trade would have been fine. I'm pretty sure they were shocked to end the season on a major losing streak.

Stafford-McGhee is still 6' 7" and still can get blocks and rebounds, if she puts it together in year 3 of her career it won't be that bad of a trade. Even if her ceiling ends up being a Krystal Thomas kind of impact that is still something The Dream need. I can still understand why they rolled the dice with that move.

She had a good rookie season, the coach who gradually increased her minutes left, the star player left, Chicago got back a player who plays the same position (I thought they could play together but I was wrong) who had a career season and Imani never really got it going.

Next season she will have a great opportunity for redemption, and her less than consistent offense will not be an issue playing with Angel, Hayes Williams, and Sykes. I'm not predicting all-star level play, but Contributing on an OK to good team is still within her potential.
