That explains why he invited Morgan William and hasn’t cut her yet.

He also must be tickled with Jefferson. Plum isn’t very big herself.

Shoni has a lot of skills, just needed to get into shape and work on the d. Glad she is getting another chance.

Can someone explain the rule concerning the comments here about cutting players when overseas players return? Are teams allowed 12 players plus overseas players rights, then required to cut to 12?

They can only have 12 players under contract when the season starts whether they are here or overseas.

The comments on the board about cutting players when overseas players arrive are really in relation to the number of players allowed in training camp, which I believe is 18 (but could be wrong). The training camp number is for bodies in camp, not the number of contracts a team has. So a team can have the max number of players in camp (some with training camp contracts) and have additional players under contract that are overseas and not in camp. When the overseas player arrives, the team either has to waive the overseas player or cut a training camp contracted player to stay within the allowed number of bodies in camp.

In the case of LV both Plum and McBride won't arrive until after the season is in progress because they will be in Turkey until at least the 21st, maybe longer. In that case LV can start the season with 12 player not including Plum and McBride as long as they can pay them and stay under the cap, also Plum and McBride will not be paid for the time they are not with the team.

When Plum and McBride arrive LV can take them off temporary suspension at which point they have to pay them. Also at that point LV would have to cut two players so they can stay at the 12 play max

for example at the beginning of the season LV could have

Colson/Schimmel/Jefferson
Young/Holmes
Coffey/Nared
Wilson/Hamby
Bone/Swords/Park

with Plum and McBride on temporary suspension for not being with the team.

Then when Plum and McBride arrive LV would have to cut two of the players above so they can add McBride and Plum to the active roster let's say Colson and Holmes (or any other 2 players).

Plum/Schimmel/Jefferson
McBride/Nared
Young/Coffey
Wilson/Hamby
Bone/Swords/Park

I count 18 including Harrison. Is she going to be full season suspended or do they plan on bringing her back again this season?

Could she be part of the exemption between her and Jefferson to get an extra player?

Come on, Laimbeer. Show your cards.

I'd imagine Harrison will be suspended for the season.

So trying to see where Las Vegas stands with their injured & late arrivals.

CURRENT ROSTER(12)
K. Bone
N. Coffey
S. Colson
D. Hamby
R. Louis
J. Nared
J. Park
S. Schimmel
C. Swords
M. William
A. Wilson
T. Young

LATE
K. Plum
M. McBride

INJURED
M. Jefferson

SUSPENDED
I. Harrison

How many exemptions are they allowed? Jefferson probably is added to their opening day 12 and two get cut when Plum & McBride show up(Louis & William) meaning one more cut needs to happen.

Other than poster speculation/commentary, has there been confirmation as to Isabelle Harrison missing the season (as opposed to taking a leave of absence and just missing training camp), and, if so, the reason (the WNBA.com article only mentions taking a leave of absence and missing training camp)?

Nope, nothing beyond that original statement. Everything else is just people guessing.

I noticed Morgan William and Jamie Nared were doing PR at a radio station this morning. I wonder if that means anything.

yes. Very Happy but it could easily have been that the radio station reached out specifically to them and he had little to do with it. who knows for sure?

So Schimmel clearly starts at PG. But who backs her up for now? Surprised they kept Louis over Colson or William.

The Sparks pared down to 11 even with Lavender still overseas, so toad’s final list can’t be correct.

The Las Vegas Aces waived guards Sydney Colson and Morgan William, and forward Valeriane Ayayi today, and placed Isabelle Harrison, Kelsey Plum and Kayla McBride on the temporarily suspended list. That brings the Aces roster down to 11 players, and the team expects to add a player prior to the season opener, Sunday, May 20 at Connecticut.


Temporarily suspended? Pilight, what is the meaning of this? Confused 🤦🏻‍♂️

Does this mean the Aces have the cap space for 15 players? Unbelievable

According to a source, Aces are expecting to sign Lindsay Allen off of waivers and be part of their 12-woman roster.

They have 11 plus the three suspended players. Once those players show up and they want to activate them, they'll have to cut enough to get down to a maximum of 12 on the active roster. Might only mean one cut in the near future, seeing as we don't know how long they'll be waiting on Harrison.

Yeah, when I looked at the other waivers, that popped up as a possibility. She's someone he's familiar with which helps.

So with L. Allen getting picked up off of waivers:

PG: Schimmel/LAllen/Jefferson (IR)
SG: Young/Louis
SF: Coffey/Nared
PF: Wilson/Hamby
C: Bone/Swords/Park

N/A: McBride/Plum/Harrison

Louis goes when McBride shows up. L. Allen goes when Plum shows up. Hamby goes whenever Harrison decides to show up.

PG: Jefferson/Plum
SG: McBride/Schimmel
SF: Young/Coffey or Nared
PF: Wilson/Harrison
C: Bone/Swords/Park

IMO more likely Nared goes even though you all know how I feel about Hamby. But maybe by then it will be clear who is at the back, backend of the bench.

It's official.... Vegas claims Lindsay Allen.

Seems to be the only transaction of the day.

What are you doing, Nicki Collen?
Is Dietrick really that valuable?

18 questions for Aces’ first season in Las Vegas

https://lasvegassun.com/news/2018/may/19/18-questions-for-aces-first-season-in-las-vegas/

I’m highlighting 5 of the most interesting questions to me.

Quote:
Just how good will A’Ja Wilson be?
Real good. Wilson averaged 14.5 points and 9.5 rebounds in two preseason games, and that includes an outlier 4-of-17 shooting performance against the Dallas Wings last week. That won’t happen again all season. Wilson will be the Rookie of the Year.


Quote:
Who will be the team’s leading scorer?
Wilson may be a rookie, but she’s ready to play. She’ll lead the way with 15.8 points per game.


Quote:
What will be the highest attended game?
The capacity for the Mandalay Bay Events Center is listed at 12,000, and there are some WNBA teams that draw in that range. The Aces drew 2,091 for their exhibition against the Chinese National Team on May 6, but I think they can break 10,000 for the home opener against the Seattle Storm on May 27.


Quote:
What will be the Aces’ longest winning streak?
Las Vegas will win four straight from July 1 to July 10, defeating the Los Angeles Sparks, the Connecticut Sun and the Chicago Sky (twice).


YASS!

Quote:
Will the Aces make the playoffs?
Yes. Eight of the 12 teams make the playoffs, and Laimbeer isn’t about to miss the cut with all the young talent on the Aces roster. Look for Las Vegas to qualify for the postseason as the No. 6 seed.

Nice to hear they're looking at 10k for their home opener.
