We end the year the exact same way we ended last season. 1st rd playoff exit. We have a very very important offseason coming up. I have no idea where to start. Well getting a coach would be 1st. Micheal Cooper? Eric Thibault? Let the moves begin! #5 Pick should be useful i hope. Oh yeah im still a #WFFL

Not sure Cooper is really what you need, but he might be good for Cambage if she comes back. Erika had her best season under Cooper, and he did help Liz Williams develop as well.

really comes down to whether Cambage comes back. I'm leaning slightly towards her returning. With her returning I see them drafting Durr at #5. They also need a back-up PG. Do they invite Chong back?

PG: Diggins-Smith/???
SG: Gray/Durr/Davis
SF: Thornton/Christmas-Kelly
PF: Stevens/Johnson
C: Cambage/George/Plaisance

1.Hire a HC-My top 4 options are:

E.Thibault
C.Ross
J.Plank
B.Winters


2.Core Glory...Then trade her for Copper and Ndour….or to Minn for 1st rd pk and Fagbenie,Jones or Zandalasini(1 of the 3)

3.Make Stevens the starting PF.

4.Move Thornton back to the bench.

5.Draft KLS,Durr or Collier.

6.Shop Davis and Gray.

Im going to invest in your post seeing as though we know this team the best here. Im not sold on Ross as she let Candace run her out of town in less than 2 yrs. Plank hasnt been a HC in decades not sure about her as an option. Winters is interesting i never though about Lurch but he could get some discipline out of our team so he wouldn't be bad. My #1 option is Eric #2 Coop #3 Marianne Stanley. Draft wise the one player that can make an impact right away for our team is in your trio of players. Ill wait til lottery to unveil who i want though. Shades is lurking Laughing I think we can get more for Glory if we trade with the right team. I do like Glory for Jones but i doubt they give up CeCe. Fagbenle ill pass on maybe Jones & Next Yrs 1st Rder for Johnson? Still a bit Iffy. Shopping davis has already happened this year. The market wasn't good for her value within the organization's minds. Im sure they will revisit some of the offers that were on the table before deadline expired. Gray is another interesting player. Shop her yes but to where? NY? Who do they have that we need other than Tina? Laughing ........Exactly Maybe Gray to LA for Vadeeva? Idk i havent had time to let this season sink in and evaluate. Laughing

1.Expectations got Ross fired IMO.She won 24 games in back to back seasons then got fired during her 3rd season after hovering around the .500 mark.The biggest mistake Ross/Toler made was signing A.Harrington and not retaining at least one of their 3 point specialist(O'Hea,Coleman)..

2.I’m not all that high on Coop.He was very underwhelming in Atlanta.Very knowledgeable man,but too laid back.Similar to Coach Williams.Coop Gives his players lots of freedom on offense.I don’t think that’s what this Wings team needs,especially when you have a scoring point guard.

3.Marianne Stanley is 64 years old and has only been HC for two seasons...In 2002 Stanley led the Mystics to a 17-15 record and won COY….In 2003 the Mystics went 9-25...Stanley went back to being a Asst Coach…...Stanley reminds me off Holly Warlick(Life long Assistant)

4.I’d still take Plank > Taj/Phillips.

So we agree that Eric is #1 priority? #2 a toss up between Ross/Plank/Cooper although your idea of Winters has struck a nice interest in me. Possibly a great 2nd option.

I would love for Cambage to return next season. She was the brightest star in a league full of stars this season.

I wouldn't be surprised if her anti-WNBA comments were also contrived(An excuse not to show up next season]

I think you all have got it backwards.

She is emotional and speaks her mind and her mind changes a lot based on those emotions. I believe she completely means it in the moment that she wants to come back, and I believe when she is down on the W, can't believe what she gets paid, is frustrated with the physicality and craapy travel and missing her family she also means it when she says she isn't coming back.

You will have to wait until probably late April before you know for sure. I love Liz in the W and hope she returns but won't put too much stock into any quotes this week, in December, half way through her season in China. Similar to this season she will probably give the team a heads p one way or the other in Spring.

Of the names tossed out so far Eric T. sounds like the best bet. The rest of them are all pretty much over the hill or lifelong assistants. Of course as this season showed - an assistant coach is a gamble. The results could be anywhere between Katie Smith and Nicki Collen. The past 4 AC's promoted to HC (that I can remember) are Miller, Collen, Stocks and Smith. So basically it's a coin toss on how they turn out.

Another wrinkle on the Liz drama - maybe she realize that Erin is highly replaceable if she doesn't come back so she keeps hope alive to help her out.

One thing for sure - if I'm Liz I want to see what this team does with its coach hire and FA moves before deciding.

I believe "crapshoot" is the league approved term for the uncertainty surrounding new coaches.

Well I think coin toss is better. A crapshoot could have any result. In this case we had 2 COY's and 2 WCOY candidates. It's sort of a binary outcome. Laughing

Stocks has been a HC for 2 seasons,Smith for 1...I think we should give them 3 years before we come to a conclusion on how good or bad they are.

That's fair for measuring coaches and there is no proof a coach who does well in the first season will end up doing that well in the following years or vice versa. However, it seems to me the Wings already have the talent (esp. if Liz comes back) and need to be a winner asap. So they need to get a coach that can improve them next season mainly through better defense. I think they need a proven coach if they can find one.

Dallas needs a 3rd scorer, someone who can step up and go off, Durr would be a good pick, but I think Durr and Ogunbowale will go 3 and 4 in the draft. LouConn or Mabrey would be my pick at 5, for a team who can sometimes use a fire lit under them, someone like Mabrey who plays with a lot of moxie would fit the team well.
Diggins-Smith/Davis/ draft pick
Mabrey/Gray
Christmas-Kelly/Thornton
Stevens/Trade
Cambage/George/Plaisance

You may want to keep these proposals from Cambage’s eyes, or else she may be done with the team for good. Wink

You really rank Mabrey up there with KLS and think she could be a starter right away? I’m doubting she can even hold onto a bench spot. I got her in the late second round at this point. We’ll see how McGraw uses her. Now watch.... Reeve will probably draft her.

Liz.
After reading about Liz Cambage having bouts with anxiety and depression my stance has become one of more compassion. Any of you that have had high anxiety might relate to what it's like to get ready for a social event and at the last minute to step back inside and close the door to the outside world, leaving those with expectations empty-handed. Liz stepped through the door, making confidence-gaining strides with a statement this year of her ability to play with the best, to put up wonderful stats that stand up well when comparisons are made while playing for a losing team, to showcase her multi-faceted abilities and come out smelling like a rose. She is All-World caliber. Liz mentioned taking care of her mind and spirit...that is what is most important for any human being.

Any of you that have had high anxiety might relate to what it's like to get ready for a social event and at the last minute to step back inside and close the door to the outside world, leaving those with expectations empty-handed. Liz stepped through the door, making confidence-gaining strides with a statement this year of her ability to play with the best, to put up wonderful stats that stand up well when comparisons are made while playing for a losing team, to showcase her multi-faceted abilities and come out smelling like a rose. She is All-World caliber. Liz mentioned taking care of her mind and spirit...that is what is most important for any human being.

It seems to me the most important issue facing a new head coach is getting Cambage to play. Get Cambage to buy in to the process; even let her essentially make the choice. The Wings with Cambage next season will be a better team than without her, regardless of the coach.

I think they need to keep George on the team as part of bringing back Cambage. If Johnson ends up elsewhere, maybe the Wings draft Magbegor?

That’s what I was saying when I was campaigning for Cambage’s return, but the results this season were less than spectacular with few excuses (unless Christmas going down made the huge difference).

If Magbegor makes it to PHX’s pick, I’m 90% sure she’ll be snatched up by them.

This aint Australia 2.0 ,

No more making moves to accommodate Cambage. Build your team how you want , whether she returns or not.

How can you say something of this nature when she wasn't with us two years ago and our record was better than the season she came over ? Rolling Eyes

I think Skylar would force a trade if she had Klop as her coach again. Dude, sat and stared down at the floor for 50% of the game. No way. Laughing

Still loving Liz. But I agree, gotta plan for the future if she doesn’t come back. I think this season got stuck in the mud due to fred’s Laziness and incompetence. The easiest thing to do is ride 1 & 5 until they die. It kind of showed his lack of competence as Glory was arguably the best player on the court at times last year and thoroughly unused this year. She was an afterthought all season long. Hellllloooo!!! Where is the high-low game between gloJo and Liz. I mean someone shoulda been seriously administered a beat-down with those high octane ladies. I cannot blame skylar being a ball hog as everything about this season seems to be pointed at her being rode too f***ing hard. I searched all season with reps, neighboring fans, staff, this board, and the occasional coach trying to find why the hell one releases Chong to replace her with the 12th woman on the bench of 10. I’d like to credit Bibb with some of this idiocy as he seems like a pretentious boob striding around for 3 seasons and never bothering to say, boo, kiss my ass, give me more Money or god forbid-thanks for your unwavering support. Hmmmm, maybe open your eyes and listen to someone other than yourself Narcissis.

Thornton earned her spot in my eyes. On a team that needs a bolus of adrenaline on top of a constant drip, she needs to be on the floor. Used more wisely? Yes! Some people she cannot guard. Aja Wilson?
No, she is too strong and easily shoots over Thornton. That anemic GWH, EDD? Yes!!! Body her up and move her off her spots. Her trajectory from her 5 games at the Mystics to last year to this year is to the moon. I say, let’s see her game next year.

I also expect year 2 to be a Massive improvement for Azura. She needs to be pushed next year. Glimpses of brilliance this season. Push her! And I think she can defend. The W over the Aces could be partly attributed to 3 statement blocks By Stevens. She just needs a coach!!!

Next point, and likely biggest, the coaching! Give it to Taj! I liked what I heard from her speaking to the media. She does not mince words, which hopefully means she holds Players accountable. This teams needs a push and I’m tired Of the old has-beens.

Next, keep Lucas. She should get better as she gets stronger from whatever put that ankle to neck brace on her leg she was wearing. And it is no secret the Wings need a SHOOTER. For the love of God, find a shooter-you have LIZ and DIGGINS, for fox sake, just any 40% 3 point shooter will wreak havoc on opposing defenses.

Finally, draft concerns. Shooter, shooter shooter. If Liz does not play, demand GJ and Azura to cover the posts. Mobile 5’s are the future of this league. Shooter!

Phwew, just a few opinions/observations.

Might as well link this here:

Liz Cambage earns devoted US fanbase after season of points, freedom and memes
- by Howard Megdal

Quote:
The impact that Liz Cambage made in the 2018 WNBA season can be measured in an infinite number of ways on the court. But it is the impact that America had on Cambage, the sense of emotional release and freedom that came with her return to the United States after five years out of the league, that augurs best for a long-term commitment between the Australian and her adopted country.

The Dallas Wings will be paying Tayler Hill over $100,000 for the 2019 season, that's starter's money.
