Is Stewie a UFA? How do we know for sure that she's coming back to Seattle?

Was her contract somehow suspended or extended for a year?


She would only be a RFA if he contract counted in 2019.

2016, 2017, 2018, 2019... that’s only 4 years.
It seems the clock keeps running on rookie contracts whether you play or not.
The new rule now is 5 years until they’re a UFA.

I haven’t seen it clarified if it’s 3 yrs rookie + 2 yrs RFA, or 4 yrs rookie + 1 yr RFA. My guess is the first one.

My guess is, no matter what her contract status is, Stewie gets signed to an extension before the season starts, sorta similar to what they did with both Loyd & KML before their contracts ran out. Whether her rookie contract's up or not, she's definitely eligible for an extension, and this organization's the type to get that done sooner rather than later. It'll probably be for max.

I think Bird's contract is up this year (I believe she's only been signing two-year deals for a little while now), so I'm guessing she gets near/at max, if nothing else for the many years she's given us along with the loyalty she's shown. Absolutely deserving imo.

I do wonder where those likely moves would put us regarding the cap...

Due to construction of the New Arena at Seattle Center, the Storm will host 10 games at the University of Washington’s Alaska Airlines Arena prior to the league-wide break for the 2020 Olympic Games, and will resume play at Angel of the Winds Arena on Aug. 16 against the Las Vegas Aces.

Based on current salaries, plus people likely to get the new max, I still have you at over 200k under the new cap, with only two roster spots left to fill (one of which is presumably expected to be a dirt-cheap Magbegor). That's even assuming last season counted on Stewart's contract (I'm not certain how they handle these suspensions any more) and she'd be on 215k.

1.3m is quite a lot to work with when a lot of people are still on deals signed under the old scale.
