Quote:
According to Coach Derek Fisher, Guards Chelsea Gray and Kristi Toliver are locks to start in the backcourt. Fisher also said, Forwards Candace Parker and Nneka Ogwumike are locked in to start in the frontcourt.

Tierra Ruffin-Pratt was signed to a multi-year contract to provide All-WNBA level defense and corner three-point shooting and the Sparks will also rely on Chiney Ogwumike for tough defense, rebounding and post scoring.

I'm still awaiting the radioactive fallout from Penny's comments and pending lawsuit. I wonder who Penny wanted to trade Candace for? Having played with Lisa, a former "soft" player who recreated herself as a physical workaholic, Ace's tendencies to disappear in games could NOT have made Penny feel very good about her.

Not to mention Brian Agler has publicly not received any real scrutiny/backlash that I've seen for allegedly having Bill Clinton'd a player... This pandemic capturing the League's attention sure was interesting timing for Toler's lawsuit.

Martin got probation and community service after pleading no contest to battery for her assault on her ex-GF. She'll have to transfer her case to a probation office in LA.

Is Requina Williams still with the Sparks? If she is they could certainly have her mentor Martin.

No, but Riquna Williams seems to be off the hook for her infraction.

Riquna Williams most certainly is still with the Sparks. IDK if Martin makes the final cut, but if she does we sure need to make sure those two have a cerfew. lol. jk

L.A. Sparks' Seimone Augustus may extend WNBA career beyond 2020

Quote:
"To be honest, my mind is kind of open to coming back," Augustus said in a teleconference. "A lot of that is [based on] if we do have a season, how well I play, how my body feels, how my mind feels. But I'm not closed to maybe playing another season if possible."

What does a DOBO (Director of Basketball Operations) do exactly?

If a basketball has a problem that requires it to be cut open and then sewn back up, the DOBO is the one that does it.

Laughing Good one. Sounds like an important job - probably a lot of basketballs need surgery.

Sparks sign Sydney Wiese to a contract extension through 2022.

Can report that
@swiesebaby24's extension is two years, $80k, then $82,400. Another underappreciated player, that looks like a bargain from this view. No protection, either, but two-way players with her size aren't easy to find.

It must be sign-a-2017-draft-rookie-to-an-extension day. Probably not a good sign for Allisha Gray if she wasn’t given a good offer. I wouldn’t take anything below $110K if I were her.

It might be the first time I’ve ever heard Wiese referred to as a two-way player. Maybe it’s warranted, or maybe it’s a stretch; but I will say her defense did look like it had improved since she entered the League. Seems like a good move for particularly the Sparks org., but too, because it’s so cheap, Wiese theoretically shouldn’t have to worry about getting cut due to a salary that’s too expensive to fit in at the end of the cap.

I think experience helps defense more than experience helps any other part of the game. Not only do veterans know other individuals, they know other teams' offenses -- and I think, more important, they know themselves and what they can and cannot do.

I also think the importance of percentages becomes more real the longer you play. Defenders can recognize "Hey I did well but she made the shot," and also "I sucked but she missed," and thus make better decisions.
