With the departure of Jessica Breland the Sky currently has a void at the starting power forward position. How to fill that position will be determined by who they believe will be the best candidate to fill that need. The question moving forward for the Sky coaching staff will be who do they envision should be the best person to fill that need?

A. Do they believe the best person to fill that position is currently on the roster?
B. Do they believe the best person to fill that position is a member of the 2018 draft class?
C. Do they believe the best person to fill that position is a member of the 2019 draft class?
D. Do they believe the best person is a current pro player that they need to make a trade to acquire?

How they respond to the above questions will determine what action they need to take to address their power forward need.

There's no PF worth drafting at #3/#4. After Wilson, the next best PF is Billings, but she's not worth taking over DeSheilds, Williams or any of the three PGs(Canada, Brown, Nurse). I wonder if they might have Williams at PF in the beginning of the season.

Chicago can get a post player without using one of their lottery picks to attain that player. They can trade up and get a high second round pick.
There are four options Chicago have in front of them. They just need to chose one.

I stopped writing mock drafts years ago. I prefer draft rankings for my favorite team, the Chicago Sky.
This is my rankings for the 2018 draft class.

1. Gabby Williams
2. Victoria Vivians
3. Diamond DeShields
4. Marie Gulich
5. Ariel Atkins
6. Jill Barta
7. Kristy Wallace

If the Sky can draft three players from my list above I will be a happy Sky fan. Very Happy

You should be happy then.
They should be able to get two out of that first group with #3 and #4.
Since CHI doesn’t have a second round pick unless they trade for one, that second group of players should be out of play unless Stocks over-reaches with #3 or #4.
One of those in the last grouping should be available with #28.

The key sentence in your response is Chicago trading for a second round pick. That is a possibility. Wink

Azura Stevens would be the perfect replacement for Breland and would be a great complement to Dolson in the Sky's frontcourt.

The only reason to make a trade is to get Stevens at #2, to make sure Indiana does not take her.

They add Mitchell and Williams, IMO. Mitchell can cover the 1/2 and Williams the 3/4. DeShields could drop as low as #7 now if Seattle takes a PG.

CHICAGO -- The Chicago Sky have named sigur3 general manager of the Chicago Sky. Michael Alter explained "Amber Stocks does not want to be mocked on RebKell's again for her drafting for a second straight season, so she felt like it was the right time for her to hand over general manager duties to one of the message board's esteemed talent evaluators instead".
Amber Stocks said "It will be an honor to be able to work with sigur3 in order to build the Chicago Sky into a WNBA championship contender."

The Sky will host opening night at Wintrust Arena on May 20 against the New York Liberty. Season ticket memberships and mini plans are available now at sky.wnba.com/memberships or by calling (866) SKY-WNBA.

You are right Myrtle. I am a happy man right now because I just found out that A. Stevens has declared for the 2018 WNBA draft. I just did a somersault and a back flip kind of happy! OH HAPPY DAY! Laughing Laughing Laughing

If Pokey sticks with her plan and draft Mitchell I see Chicago taking Stevens and Deshields (or Gabby but I think the coach likes scorers).

so

Sloot/Faulkner
Quigley/Deshields
Copper/A. Montgomery/Hooper
Stevens/Ch. Parker
Dolson/Coates

one of N'Dour or Bulgak

On the flip side Indy takes Stevens Chi gets Mitchell and G. Williams (thought I would flip it from Deshields for the Chicago fans that prefer Williams. Also Chicago might like some more Defense on the perimeter to compliment Mitchell).

Sloot/Faulkner
Quigley/Mitchell
Copper/G. Williams
Dolson/Bulgak/N. Dour
Coates/Ch. Parker

one of Hooper or A. Montgomery

The bonus for the Sky passing on Mitchell at #2 is the likelihood of one of Nurse, Brown or Canada dropping to #8 now. Fever take Stevens.

The personal interviews should be an important component to whom the Sky draft with the #3 & #4 picks. They should draft players who are willing to be coached outside of their comfort zones. They should also draft players that want to make a long term commitment to play for the Chicago Sky.

She was re-signed back in February, so I have to believe she plans to show up.

1.The only way this makes sense is if a trade is in the works:

Gabby for C.Ogwumike
Gabby for Langhorne
Gabby for Meesseman
Gabby for Harrison & Coffey

2.Chicago didn't Draft D.Deshields to have her come off the bench,or to be Copper's backup.If that was the case they would not have drafted two wings.Of course,anything is possible with this stupid franchise.

This could be a good mid-season trade idea if Ogwumike decides she doesn’t like her role and Stocks figures out she could use a decent PF.

Who knows, maybe a couple of these CHI post players will actually step up this year.

She doesn’t play this year, and maybe she’ll never play again if traded to Chicago. Wink

You already have that DeShields daddy attitude where she learned it from.

I don’t understand the people (is Stocks one of them) who think Gabby will be playing PF in the WNBA. Maybe they could get away with it for awhile or in spot duty, but being a full time PF would really take a toll on Gabby’s body. And she was already showing signs of wearing down her senior year. Before her senior season there was an article where Gabby said she was relieved that Stevens was on the team so she could focus more on the perimeter (didn’t really happen). She said going against players bigger than her all the time was exhausting. Now in the WNBA, more players are even bigger and stronger.

Williams will play power about as often as Delle Donne played shooting guard for the Sky.

If Chicago wants to go all-in and put the best athletes on the floor to complements its best shooters, it should try this starting lineup:

PG - Courtney Vandersloot
SG - Allie Quigley
W - Diamond DeShields
F - Gabby Williams
P - Stefanie Dolson

Chicago has some rebuilding years ahead. Might as well left the young guns get some experience.

yeah it was a coin toss so

Sloot/Faulkner
Quigley/Copper
Deshields/G. Williams/A. Montgomery or Hooper
Dolson/Bulgak/N'Dour
Coates/Ch. Parker

I think with A. Montgomery you get better defense and someone who can play the 2 or the 3.

With Hopper you get better shooting and someone who can play the 3 or a stretch 4 in a small line up.

Graves and Harris were never re-signed. It's basically Dolson-Bulgak-Ndour-Williams.

You can think of their draft as drafting for 2019. Next year they should be adding Brown or MCowan so that will help shore up some short comings.

Dolson can be a 4 on offense. On defense, Amber could move Steph back to 5 and try Coates at 4. Coates runs well for her size, although I'm not sure about lateral quickness. It's worth a try since the Sky sunk a #2 pick into Coates.

We need to wait and see how the 2018 season unfolds before making a decision on the next personnel moves for the Sky. The Sky should not lock into drafting another CENTER if there is a high quality power forward available. Very Happy

You can think of their draft as drafting for 2019. Next year they should be adding Brown or MCowan so that will help shore up some short comings.


You think they'll have that high of a draft pick


yes. but I'm willing to be surprised.

And watch they'll take someone like McCowan or Kalani Brown.

What are they supposed to do, take Turner or Shepard if they have the #1 pick? They should take whoever they like best and work out the rest in trade if they believe Dolson can’t be a 4.

Here’s an interesting video. It’s Amber Stocks talking to Diamond DeShields on the phone after selecting her. She’s doing a kinda masterful job in drawing DeShields in.... making her feel wanted so maybe she’ll stick around. Already feeling the need to stroke DeShields’ ego.

Dolson's still not a 4.


I agree she played her basketball when they played her at the 5
