Ndour's been playing behind high salary veterans or high draft picks her entire career. This is why she doesn't get playing time.


Wait, it's money that determines playing time? Hamby and Wilson better swap minutes then.


Wilson was obviously a high draft pick and elite player.

Fair enough.however, McCowan was a lottery pick and Indiana had no real size at the center position. In the case of Anigwe. Connecticut traded away Chiney and have no real post depth. Tuck and Jones are the only other post players on the bench. Ndour has played on teams that had lots of post depth.

2014- Appel,Adams,Young,Alexander
2016- Appel,Hamby (1st rd pk) Alexander...Ndour did avg 14.9 mpg
2018- Dolson, Parker, Gabby experiment...Coach Stocks was hell bent on playing Gabby at PF.
2019- Dolson,Parker,Lavender...3 players making near max

There's no way in hell Gabby should've been playing PF ahead of Ndour.

C'mon man, that's not depth. That's having some players. Every team has some players. Appel was a place-filler who never scored and was a step away from being a stiff, Alexander was a nothing that a team just paid to go away, Adams was constantly getting benched for being out of shape or unable to defend a brick, Dolson was awful last year, Parker's taken 4+ years to finally round into being a viable WNBA player, Lavender was worthless for two years and they only traded for her after Wade saw how desperately he needed another post - these are all groups where there were minutes to be won if someone else played well enough.

I agree with you. Most of these players are just above average, but the teams were/are heavily invested in them.

Lottery pks: Gabby,Coates,Young

High 1st rd pks: Alexander,Parker,Hamby,Appel

Adams made the AS game as a rookie

Dolson was part of the EDD trade.

Chicago traded a for Lavender (near max player).....You don't trade for near max players then sit them on the bench.


Ndour was a 2nd rd pk...........Adams had a great rookie season as a 2nd rd pk but San Antonio had no post depth. It was Young,Appel and T.Smith (last season)

Man, all these excuses to rationalize nonsense. You don't trade for a max player to come off the bench or you don't pay them max to come off the bench... because what's the difference?

Minnesota traded for max player Perkins to come off the bench. They intended Sims to come off the bench before Augustus got hurt. Guess what, she makes max. Three year max protected.

Now you'll say, "Those are guards! What I meant to say is nobody trades for a max money post player to come off the bench." Just stop it.

Lavender didn't get a max contract unearned, like you'd like Ndour to get. She played the most minutes in the league in 2015. She was 6th Woman of the year in 2016. It's not conceivable that Lavender is good in the starter's role, even better than Ndour?

So I would say, if Ndour has any chance to make anything close to max next year, she'd need to work herself up to the first post off the bench (with no excuses). She'd have to find a team that needs help in the post. Is CHI that team, I dunno? The team that sticks out to me is PHX, with Little retiring and Lyttle another year older.

Now I think AFO was poking around here because he might be interested in a replacement for Swords, but not at max money. He's probably looking to spent around what Swords is making now, like around $80K maybe a little more. That'd be a decent price point for Ndour as it stands.

1. You're overreacting to my comment about matching any Ndour contract offer which I clearly backtracked on after looking at the numbers.

2. You're taking my comment out of context. When said "no coach would sit a max player on the bench" after acquiring them. That means playing them limited minutes or not having them in the regular rotation. Wade traded for Lavender because he wanted to add depth to the frontline. Lavender was going to get 18-24 mpg regardless (starter, off bench) Sure, the Lynx did it with Perkins but they were already a title contender with a set starting 5, so they had nothing to lose. And even then, that money could've been spent more wisely (see post #3)

3. Different teams, different circumstances. The Lynx were one of the championship favorites with a great starting lineup. There was no chance of Perkins starting, nor should she. Perkins signing with Minny was a luxury, Chicago trading for Lavender was a necessity. And despite winning the Championship in 2017, Perkins was a nonfactor. In hindsight, Minnesota would've been better off spending that money on Howard.

4. As for the O.Sims trade/signing. Moore,Whalen,Wright and Brunson's contracts all came off the books. So the Lynx had plenty of money to spend. Augustus will play one or two more seasons at the most. Sims is still a relatively young player with good upside. Minnesota had to make this move for the future.


5. As for Ndour?...She's going to get a lot of offers during the offseason, same goes for copper.

Not a surprise.

Of all the people you bold that for me like I don't know? You must have forgotten who was the only one protesting the trade.

But what does any of this have to do with you saying Ndour should get a max contract? Diversionary tactic?

I also think you may be confusing Perkins with TWright.

I know why the Lynx signed Sims. A good player fell into their lap at the perfect time. Doesn't happen too often. I was just pointing out your excuses for Ndour not being more prominent aren't valid. If Lexie Brown outplayed Sims, Lexie brown would get more minutes. If Ndour outplayed Lavender, then Ndour would get more minutes. Of course, Ndour has only played 13 minutes for Chicago this season, so I can see why you're all excited.

Okay, that's what you should have said in the first place. A lot of time wasted over a hyperbole (max contract).

Powers is also up for a contract renewal. I'd pay her more than I would Copper, but neither is likely to get max. Every free agent can't get max, unless the new CBA really mixes things up, which I don't anticipate.

Of course, I was surprised that Hamby got a three year max deal, so you never know. Maybe that's why Laimbeer felt a need to bring in a separate GM. He was getting a little crazy with the big contracts and guaranteed deals. You saw what happened with Bone. Of course, Hamby is running through a wall for him and isn't complaining about being a role player, so there's that. She might be worth it.

Is Ndour going to run through a wall? Let's wait and see.

The players that I am going to list now is my personal 2020 free agent wish list. Do I believe the Sky will get any of these players. Probably not! This wish list is for entertainment purposes only.
T. Hawkins
A. Powers
S. Diggins-Smith
