For Izzy Harrison, Mo Jefferson, and a draft pick.
This is probably the best deal Dallas was offered. As you know Cambage was demanding a trade. She wanted to go to Los Angeles, but I don't think that Sparks GM Penny Toler was interested in acquiring Cambage since they already have a new post player in 6'7" Kalani Brown (Baylor), and she was not willing to part with any of her core players that Dallas wanted.Highway robbery by the Aces. Should be the frontrunner now. Wilson and Cambage will be a ridiculous combo. Not to mention 15+ppg from Kayla McBride and a good young PG in Plum. Oh yeah, and the new #1 pick in Jackie Young. Wow.
It definitely is a consistent problem in the WNBA that stars forced trades to preferred destinations and the trading team never receives anything close to fair value for the stars. It creates some serious competitive imbalance.It is ridiculous that the Aces got 3 first overall picks in row (there should be a rule that you can't have the first overall pick in back-to-back years) but now they get one of the best players in the league without giving any of those or their All-Star McBride?
I'd honestly forgotten about CoatesIt definitely is a consistent problem in the WNBA that stars forced trades to preferred destinations and the trading team never receives anything close to fair value for the stars. It creates some serious competitive imbalance.
Connecticut only got a single 1st round pick (likely to be low) for Chiney.
Chicago has maybe got the worst of this. They had to give up a 2nd round pick to trade Fowles for Erika de Souza (who was already past her prime).
The EDD trade actually wasn't too bad as Chicago got a starting center (Dolson) and useful bench guard (Copper) plus the #2 overall pick. Too bad that draft sucked and that #2 pick was Coates who is not very good.
