I'm wondering if she had awake up call and is ok with coming off the bench for a non-title contender? San Antonio? Seattle? Would Minnesota take her to replace Pierson?

New York and Seattle could certainly use her. Dallas could bring her in as insurance. We saw in 2015, she can be a solid player.

She's just what LA needs next season. A physical backup center, move Charmin soft Lavender to the backup 4. Laughing I'm sure Bone would prefer to start I guess. Indiana? Washington? Seattle?

You guys do realize she's talking about a lot of you on here, right? So many on this board just love to make up shit about players or spread rumors from very questionable sources that are completely untrue.

I'd be more than willing to give her another chance in Phoenix.

They still own her restricted rights, so it remains the most likely destination.

Upgrade over Cannon and George for sure

but would Phoenix match a max? I'm guessing some other team will throw one at her.

But then, I guessed the same thing last offseason. We still don't know whether she had offers and if so what level they were at, because who knows how 'voluntary' her year off was. Maybe not getting the money she expected led to the skiped year, or maybe she just felt like she needed the time off and any offers were redundant.

I would think that a 5 with decent size who can score would draw high offers, even if she can't defend and has some character question marks, but who knows. Phoenix still have a bunch of cap space, although Bonner returning could cut into that. And Brondello never seemed comfortable with the idea of Bone and Griner playing together, which would basically make Bone an expensive insurance policy. A sign-and-trade might be the best idea for everyone.

Janel McCarville seems to be healthy again. I notice she had a great game recently in the Swedish league. 27 pts, 9 reb, 8 ast in 25 min (off the bench if I'm interpreting the boxscore correctly).

I wonder if the Lynx would consider going down that road again. She'd probably have to pass an extensive Mayo physical exam to help determine long term feasibility, because the Lynx bet on her in 2016. Although she was decent during the regular season, her body broke down during the playoffs when the Lynx really needed her. Back issues can be chronic. Liston called it quits after only two years because of chronic back issues.

As big of a fan I am of Janel, I think her Lynx playing days are over unfortunately. Lynx need to get younger.

This should definitely be a priority for Minnesota. Sign a young post (Bone?). McCarville would likely be a one year filler.

Unless they get a great young player, they don't necessarily have to get younger in this championship window. They didn't get younger with Pierson, and that worked out well. My main issue with her is can she stay healthy.

I'd rather have Langhorne. Is that young enough?

Just say no to Little, Lynx, if she's an option. In her case I'd rather get younger. Wink

I definitely don't see that happening. The Lynx are into good chemistry players.
Have you forgotten her recent history?

So you wouldn't think the Lynx should got after Lyttle (UFA) either, I hope.

Probably not, but if the players want her, I'd be good with it. When a new vet is considered, they seem to need the starters' okay. That's a smart way to do it.

Nobody needed to throw any dirt. She did a mighty fine job all on her own.

FYI: posting a direct quote does not constitute "throwing dirt."

Are we referring to Sancho Lyttle or Camille? If Sancho then i would offer up my wings but her injury history scares me away. Sancho would be PERFECT!

I was talking about the current (no longer young) Sancho. She is a UFA and NC intimated in the DNS podcast recently they are not sure whether Sancho will want to come back to the Dream next season. If she went to the Lynx I assume it would be as a backup, like Pierson last year. My guess (based on nothing) is she would go to whatever team offers her the most money and longest deal. But who knows, players her age sometimes go ring shopping and the Lynx have been picking up some of those types.

She has a history with Fred, so Dallas is possible. Getting young Sancho probably is not.

In spite of the perception that people had of her, I think she did a good job in PHX. She was the tough and physical presence they needed off the bench.

Little had 8 games in double digit scoring during the regular season, and only one game in double digit rebounds. No double-doubles.

In the playoffs she had one game in double digit scoring and one game double digit rebounding. No double-double.

And that's with Griner missing a bunch of games.

Think its time Breland head to the bench . I personally have a hard time seeing a championship team win with Breland at the 4 . Me personally though so who knows Question

Breland’s biggest issue is consistency. She has great stretches and then disappears like she did in her all star season in 2014. I’m not sure who else could realistically start for the sky. I would really love to nab Howard from the Lynx, but I don’t see it happening. The only way we don’t start Breland is if we can package one or both of our picks for someone like Chiney, or GloJo. Maybe even possibly trade down and draft Billings.

Or Start Coates since it seems shes showing interest in the sky lately.

PG Slooty
SG - Copper or Pick #3
SF - Quigley (Hopefully) Or Pick #4
PF - Dolson
C - Coates

Megdal's article is interesting because he says there is a "complete" list but then doesn't actually give us one. He gives the "best of the rest" honorable mentions but that statement implies that there is more to the rest. Then he goes through the top 20 click-through to pad his numbers. I know that local press reported four additional players as being free agents:

Camille Little
Jia Perkins
Carolyn Swords
Sancho Lyttle

Press could be wrong, of course.

There's only Sloot and Dolson (and T.Young, I guess, if she were to stick around) getting paid on that roster, so yeah. Dependent on whether they want to stay and what free agency moves they make, of course.

Cappie officially moved to LA yesterday "to Live " That is , and the Breland experiment could be done depending on who they draft with #3 & #4 . Id Make Quigley a priority to resign

Is "T. Young" code for Jordan Hooper?

I dunno if Riquna Williams is under contract, but I bet Agler would rather have Cappie than Riquna.

Breland would be an upgrade for the Dream at the 4 position, and there may be other teams that could use her. So there should be some competition for her services.

But what can the Sparks afford if Beard returns? Could they afford Cappie even at a vet minimum?

PG: Gray/Sims
SG: Pondexter/Weise
SF: Beard/Carson/draft pick
PF: Parker/Gruda or Jackson-Jones
C: NOgwumike/Lavender

Seems that the Sparks are stuck with R. Williams for 2018, so another obstacle to signing Cappie.

Is there at least a bit of demand for riquana left ? I mean she is the WNBA's record holder for points in a game albeit 400 years ago now . Very Happy

There are fewer running teams that don't give a shit about defense anymore. She would have fit in fine with some Atlanta teams of the past but don't know how all the staff changes will effect their philosophy.

I don’t see Dolson or Coates effectively playing the 4 for long stretches. We would be better off keeping Breland. Coates is still a big unknown in the W. I think she will be better at stoke where she can come in rebound and defend.

I can see dolson playing 4 full time. She might be a 5 on defense though but her outside shot was a delight to finally see consistently last season .

Doesn't/wouldn't surprise me at all. Quigley finally took her job last season, and I don't see either side of the equation being excited at the prospect of Cappie being her overpaid backup. Especially considering at least one of their lottery-pick rookies is likely to be needing those same perimeter wing minutes.

True. I heard LA or Indiana, don't know how much merit it has though.
