While the Sparks did try to retain the reigning Defensive Player of the Year, who helped them win the WNBA title in 2016, the opportunity to return to her hometown of Chicago and play in front of friends and family for the last portion of her career was too appealing for her to pass up.


Wow. I always thought the draw of "returning home" for W players wasn't a legit draw. Guess it was![/i]

Wow just wow this is equivalent to Lebron going to Miami in the W. Pretty sure Nneka & Chelsea will be on the move as well!

So bye bye Cheyenne or Stephanie? Y’all choose? Since it wasn’t a trade I expect bye bye to Cheyenne or maybe she chose to go elsewhere so they got another Parker instead! A better Parker tbh . Butttt I think Chicago would be more successful with both Parker’s Verzuz. cp3 and Dolson !

And it sounds like she is just signing with them, no super max trade

(She is probably doing fine with her NBA/TNT money)

Does this mean Chicago can no longer afford Ch. Parker unless the trade Copper or Dolson for someone cheaper?

Hopefully Chicago can dump Dolson now.

Hopefully the Fever don’t pick her up. Confused

Dump dolson while possibly losing Parker too? Means wade has a lot of faith in Stevens! It’s not that bad of plan with CP’s friend Lavender already on board tbh!

In my defense, both Ch. Parker and Wade came out with articles, publicly, that they were on the same page. Shit is kind of weird when you think about it, lol.

Player comes out and says, “I’m not going anywhere” barely after the off season starts. GM comes out says she’s our top priority. And then the first free agent you sign is someone who doesn’t even play here? Confused

If Candace accepted a non super Max deal does that mean they still have room to sign cheyenne @Richie?

I don't think so because the idea before Candance came to town was Ch. Parker could stay if she took the non-super max, but with Candace taking it there isn't enough money for anyone else except the 1st round pick

Sloot/Pick #8
Copper/Quigley
Deshields/Williams
Can. Parker/Stevens/Mavunga
Dolson Hebard

puts them right by the cap
so they would have to swap one of their more expensive players for someone cheaper and probably still have to find some more money to get Ch. Parker even at the mid to high 100s (if I understand correctly)

If Candace wanted the supermax, Chicago dont even have the room to give her that without LA taking a contract back in the deal. So no, they dont have room for both Parkers without a lot of manoeuvering.

I didn’t see any of Courtney Williams situation so I’m in the dark with that one.

Once again, Dead Wrong in Public ...

It never made sense to me for Candace to leave LA, but obviously it did to her. I've asked before, but does anybody know if her parents still live near Chicago?

I was pretty sure she was leaving once Fisher got his extension. Having a coach stars want to play for is an important element of free agency that the Sparks don't have.
