These 2 are going to get to know each other very well...

The first four games for Seattle (2 preseason and 2 regular season) are against Phoenix. For Phoenix it is 4 of their first 5 against Seattle (Dallas in the middle)

Will be interesting to see how many minutes DT/DB get. Ready to see some of the players fighting for a roster spot.

So not just a lineup, but a potential starting lineup. Gonna be very interesting to see how they set up their defense with Stewart at the 3. Do you want your tallest, longest player, who also happens to be your best rebounder and rim protector, chasing around small forwards? If not, do you really think Howard can do it? Or do we see a crapload of 2-3 zone? Hmm.

Storm playing Howard at center is just dumb. They have Hillsman available, why not throw her in?

Hillsman wasn't very good against the better centers in college. Why would it be any different in the pros?

Canada with 5 steals, but the Mercury bench just gave them the lead. Maybe they're not that bad after all?

I hope that when Clark is back with the team that Hughes will see that this is not a good starting line-up. Yes you can play it during games for stretches. Have Stewart on offense on the perimeter and Howard defending 3's but start with your traditional line-up pls

Coaches probably want to see the players they are serious about keeping.

Seattle coring Langhorne.Then acquiring Howard,and giving Minnesota the rights to swap 1st rd picks in 2019 was just asinine...Core a PF to play the center position Rolling Eyes..Play your best player who's a PF,at the small forward position Rolling Eyes

I'm pretty sure it was not. Dick and Elise also did the USA-China game, which also wasn't broadcast. I think they just do the preseason games as a practice run - I recall them doing them in prior years.

May have been a live feed somewhere like they did with the USA - China game.

Anyone know if Musina's even in the US yet? Noticed she didn't play. Shame Crvendakic got so little time for Seattle, even when Clark/KML weren't around to take up minutes at the 3.

Really surprised with how things the Storm are inside. I wonder if they'd consider picking up a center off of waivers in the next few days. Kaylee Jensen? Natalie Butler? Hamson?

They didn't play Paris. She may be overseas still, or hadn't been in town for long. So they should be getting more depth soon.

Both bigs move good for there size, and would be just what Seattle needs, a real center.

Nope Brown is slow had to be benched for the college game as she couldn't keep up, McCowan much more mobile but doesn't have the skills. We will see in a year how they both develop if they do.

Well nobody has to worry about SEA getting either of them unless they’re willing to deal Stewart.

Seattle needs something, just not sure exactly what it is. But it certainly is not a BIG who will block the lanes.

Doesnt help because they wont get minutes anyway so why bother.. We got Stewart Howard Langhorne and Paris in the post and we have to make do with that this season or try to trade Langhorne before the deadline

Until they get a "BIG who will block the lanes" the Storm will not compete for a championship. They need this player pretty desperately on defense. If they get a BIG who can at least hit a free throw line jumper, all the better.

I 100% agree, Playing one of the best Power Forwards in the game at center will only shorten her career.
