IMO they need another post, and one that could play minutes if called upon to do so.

Assuming Cambage signs for the supermax, they're set up to fill the rest of the roster out with minimums. They've left themselves just enough room for one of them to be a vet minimum (Lindsay Allen, for example). Any other vet signed for their applicable minimum would have to replace Allen.

yikes, than Park and #12 it is.

Is there any chance Park shows up?

Maybe they try to grab Holmes , Shook or Brewer if they are cut? R. Gray? Is Gillespie still a thing?

I mean, with Bill (and the brave PR guy who has chosen to try and wrangle him *twice*) on board, this is a full-on Shock reunion, not just Tulsa.

Not sure what you mean. None of those players ever played in Detroit. And who is SDS?

Just a one year filler.

The longer you wait, the bigger bargains you can get.

SDS is in Phoenix. Close but no cigar.


I read the last page first and thought there was some kind of trade Laughing Laughing
Maybe the aces can get sims for that shock reunion.

Any word on how much Davis paid for the franchise, if anything?

And what other sites might make sense for the team if MGM doesn't work out?

Is there a "Dollar Store " for WNBA players?

Kolb said this isn’t a bad draft, and now Laimbeer/Padover are obviously targeting someone they’ll think will be at #14. 🤔

I was thinking the same thing. That was clearly more than an incidental move. They jumped 10 spots from trading little ole Lindsey Allen.

They've already got the #12. I was more thinking that either they weren't expecting Allen to make the team, so did her a favour sending her somewhere she probably would, or she asked for a move to Indiana. She went to Notre Dame, so there's at least some level of local tie.

Yeah, I noticed the #12. But if they need to build a cheap bench, it's possible management likes two players in that range that they're targeting. Alternatively, LVA could package 12 & 14 to move up a bit.

The numbers for Vegas are interesting, because they've left themselves almost exactly enough for Cambage at the supermax, then one vet minimum, and one 0-2yr minimum. The picks don't really fit neatly in any of those spaces. They could replace the vet minimum with one of the picks, or both minimums with both picks, but they don't fit in the same space as the 0-2yr minimum on their own. And that was a very specific amount that they gave Riquna Williams...
