When the Chinese team does their tour of WNBA’s preseason, will the Chinese players be with their national team or their WNBA teams?

This sort of thing happened before. I think usually the player sits out the game.

I remember Sun playing stretch 4 at the FIBA World Cup and she looked pretty good, shooting 39% 3pt. I had some interest in seeing the Liberty sign her, but then I noticed that Sun hasn't done much in the Chinese League this season, shooting only 22% 3Pt. Still probably worth a look since she's 6-6 with potential outside shooting ability. Just a riskless roll of the dice.

I'm Chinese.

Sun is not that old but is clearly regressing. As you mentioned her biggest strength is stretching the floor. Solid post skills, runs the fast breaks. Good player with length and shooting touch who plays hard, but slow reaction time -> poor defense. Even worse rebounder, especially offensive. I'm not familiar with the Dream, but overall this is probably not someone to entrust a lot of minutes with, but she can add a spark off the bench in certain mismatch situations - just don't think of her as a rebounder or a traditional center.

China's biggest prospects are the young twin towers Li Yueru and Han Xu. Han with her crazy height and huge wingspan no doubt has bigger upsides and will probably fit the WNBA style a little better than Li, but Li is deceptively fast for her size and is IMO a bigger game-changer at this point.

Someone mentioned the young PG Li Yuan - very talented passer, but no WNBA prospect IMO. Terrible on defense.

Thanks for the assessments. I do think it's going to be interesting to see if either of Li and Han make an impact, and if so which does better. Very different players that happen to play the same position, at the same age, and be coming from the same place.

For what it's worth, there were WNBA coaches interested in Li Yuan in Tenerife during the Worlds, but I agree she's a longshot. Might well get drafted next year, but making a team could be unlikely. She's really small.

What are Lib fans hearing about Prince? Will she get re-signed?

All we know if Prince & Vaughn are staying overseas for EuroBasket. Prince with Russia & Vaughn with the Czech Republic. The tournament runs through July 7. So if Katie Smith wants either player back, we'll only get them for half a season. Same applies for Johannes.

Based on what? History suggests it's far more likely they'd fly out for a week or two and then come right back. Although I'm sure the potential interruption doesn't help in contract negotiations.

This is all IF Smith wants either one back. Frankly, I think we're fine without both of them and the Liberty shouldn't waste their time saving a roster spot or two for them.

If they aren't signed by now, maybe nobody wants them. So they suddenly get patriotic

Interesting. If she still has something in the tank, Zellous is a great third or fourth option on a good team. I mean that as a compliment, even if it doesn't sound like one.

I just hope that she takes KLM s minutes instead of Sami Whitcombs. Sami has earned herself decent minutes off the bench. Zellous is a goodmid range shooter but if she and Canada are on the floor together you need that 3pointshooter to space things.

Storm with a solid bench line-up Canada, Whitcomb, Zellous, Langhorne and Paris. We may have the best bench this season Shocked

Whereas this seems like terrible work by the agent, unless it was absolutely her only offer. A team that already had too many posts last season and just drafted yet another one. Unless Chiney decides she's happier working at ESPN headquarters than at Uncasville, what prayer does Cannon have of making this team?

Seattle deserved last year's championship, but, let's face it, they were the only healthy team left standing. Besides the obvious stars, any injury to Clark would have been devastating. Zellous now gives them a backup who can provide smart, gritty defense. Consider this: Clark was the only Storm player (KML, Quinn, and Sami could not) who could pester Taurasi; the veteran Zellous gives them more defense with 6 more fouls.

Probably because of the just release A.Clark sex tape.

Some fool violated Clark by releasing intimate footage of the two having sex....Clark should've been smarter. She knew the guy was taping her.

I would certainly hope the league nor team would punish her for being violated like that.

+1

The Zellous signing is probably just insurance

Oh dear. I knew she had some leaked selfies out there but I hadn't heard about a video.
