Has their championship window closed? Is Candace going to request a trade? Is Beard going to retire? Should the Sparks move on from Carson, Lavender, Sims, and Williams? Is Vadeeva coming back to the states next season? So many questions.

I hope and pray Chiney request a trade to play with her sister, first and foremost. But it's probably highly unlikely since ESPN studios are in Bristol, CT.... But let's just say IF.....

1. DRAFT Arike Ogumbowale with the 6th pick
2. TRADE Essence Carson, Jantel Lavender, and Odyssey Sims to the Connecticut Sun for Layshia Clarendon and Chiney Ogwumike
3. WAIVE Karlie Samuelson
4. RE-SIGN Ana Dabovic, and Mariana Tolo

DEPTH CHART:
PG: Chelsea Gray / Layshia Clarendon
SG: Riquna Williams / Arike Ogumbowale
SF: Candace Parker / Ana Dabovic / Sydney Wiese
PF: Nneka Ogwumike / Maria Vadeeva
C: Chiney Ogwumike / Mariana Tolo

I doubt Curt Miller, or anybody who isn't incompetent, would get rid of a superstar for that little, even if she wants to play elsewhere. Now maybe if Cheryl Reeve was the coach/GM of the Sun, she would give the Sparks Chiney for a 2nd round pick, at most, but most teams don't give away superstars for virtually nothing. Smile Plus I believe Carson is a pending free agent.

Chiney Ogwumike is a "superstar"? The same Chiney Ogwumike who scored two points off the bench last night?

They can let Lavender go and develop Vadeeva. Bring Tolo back. I'm wondering if Beard retires. Carson should stay as should Sims.


PG: Gray/Sims
SG: Williams/Wiese
SF: Carson/#6 pick/Samuelson
PF: Ogwumike/Tolo
C: Parker/Vadeeva

Sims has more trade value than Wiese. At least do a sign and trade.
While you're dreaming, might as well sign Maya and Fowles and maybe Diggins-Smith too.

I chuckled the first 213,546,324 times you said that. Now it's just kind of obnoxious, tbh. Lol. New material, please.

His argument got rather strengthened when Sims took a contract 2-3 years shorter and 50 grand per year less than she could've received on the open market this offseason.

This being Minnesota, Reeve will probably draft the Jonny Flynn of this draft, and the Sparks will end up with Stephen Curry. Smile

Not unless she’s willing to work for less than Carson is willing to work for... and Carson knows the system.

Wait, ESPN has the power to make trades in the WNBA? Chiney can always get another broadcasting job.

I think he’s saying Chiney wouldn’t demand a trade because ESPN is headquartered in Bristol, CT. But the network also operates offices in Miami, New York City, Seattle, Charlotte, and Los Angeles.

LA doesn't have the 6th pick. They have the 7th pick.
Dallas - 5
Minnesota - 6
LA - 7

How about

Draft Anigwe at #7 (I guess I should give up on her being available at #14 for NY)
Trade Lavender for Copper (Chi needs PF and some experience, Copper seems like odd woman out as Deshields and G. Williams develop. And Copper seems like a good fit all around SF with 3 and D skills to compliment the stars LA already has at it's other position. Sort of Carson 2.0).
Sign steady 3rd string PG like Chong
Keep Russian connection strong by adding Musina

Gray/Chong
R. Williams/Sims
Carson/Copper/Weise
N. Ogwumike/Vadeeva/Musina
Parker/Anigwe

End up going 8 deep in the playoffs with Chong, Weise, Musina and Anigwe as the cheering section on the bench.

He started this season with Cappie Pondexter and Riquna Williams on his roster. If the talent's there he seems to back himself to convince people to pass.

Candace shouldn't have to request a trade...Brian just need to trade her while there still some value. The receiving gotta know that her legs will not give them 17/10/6 a night on short rest though. Jlav and Sims gotta go too.

Trade her to Chicago, get Cheyenne Parker back, and hope no one notices the difference when you're still selling games with your Parker/Ogwumike frontcourt. Smile

Not sure how that strengthens his argument since whatever agreement Odyssey Sims, her agent and the Sparks came to did not break any rules, that fact that she accepted an offer lower than she could have gotten from other regardless of the reason why doesn't mean the Sparks broke the rules or played by different rules than any other team.

For all the people who are saying they are unhappy with the Jantel Lavender's play and she should be traded do you ever considered she is doing exactly what Brian Agler and the rest of the staff is asking her to do. The fact that you think she should do more doesn't mean she is not playing the role asked of her. And I'd have to imagine if the staff was unhappy with her play she wouldn't be getting the minutes she is getting.

They're asking her to not rebound ? Not box out ? Not make shots ? Not be effective in the game ? I think her minutes are more to do with not having another option than her deserving them .

The Sparks have to start paying Chelsea Gray, so they’ll already be forced to lose at least one of Beard, Carson, or Riquna.... or possibly Sims. Plus they’d have to deal down one of the player’s contracts that don’t go overseas like they did with Sims this year.

Or they could trade Lavender, but that might be a tough sell since they signed her for max. I could see her going to a low budget team like the Aces who could use a solid center especially if they don’t get a Top 2 pick or they don’t want one of the prospect centers. But Lavender doesn’t really fit the defensive mold that Laimbeer likes.

Liberty might take Lavender. But we have nothing to trade for.

Even though you don’t have the same quality of roster as the Sparks, you’re running into cap space problems yourself.

This could be a good trade , but somewhat risky. LA Knows stokes will rebound but will she hit shots ? NY knows lavender will hit shots but will she rebound ? Laughing

Lavender for Copper

Chi gets starting level PF or at least someone who makes a nice two headed PF with Cheyenne Parker. LA gets 3 and D small forward basically Carson 2.0 who has one more year of rookie scale contract.

IMO it would need to be Copper plus something. I like Copper but She's more like a third tier player, with Lavender being second tier. Maybe #15 would be enough to add to Copper. I don't think Lavender is exactly what Chicago needs but she could be useful.

If you really must move her (which I don't really think is true) maybe Lavender to Indy for Shenise Johnson. That would give Indy the freedom to move Dupree if they wish. MoMo would be perfect fit for LA if she comes fully back from her injury, though a bit of a gamble because of the injury. I guess the question there is if she and BayBay could play together again since it seems like there was possibly some bad feeling between them at the end in Miami.

I agree to a point but Copper is still in the improving portion of her career while I think Lavender is in the decline of hers, and Copper is cheaper which also gives LA some cap relief that the Sparks need as well.

Also some above have suggested Stokes for Lavender. I would not do that if I was NY.

From a Chicago Sky perspective,I don't think a Copper for Lavender deal makes any sense.Chicago's major weakness is defense.A defensive frontline of Dolson,Parker and Lavender would be a recipe for disaster...Lavender’s best defensive position is center...Only teams with mobile Power Forwards capable of playing defense should trade for Lavender (Conn,NY.ATL.Wash,LV,Sea)

Expensive replacement for Quinn. Use that money up before Stewart becomes a RFA. Then you’ll have to learn to be more frugal, unless Bird retires by then.

I thought you liked her as the 6th man.

Is this going to be an even swap? How do Liberty fans feel about this? It would save the Sparks about $25K.
