I think I just saw Ndour signed elsewhere. Stevens could be replacing her. I don't think Azura is a C in the WNBA. Closer to a 3 than a 5.
Makes sense now. Didn’t know about Ndour. Wonder if Lou could cost Karlie her job. Karlie has been playing very well in Europe.

The Hartford Courant just reported that the Chicago Sky have traded KLS and a 2021 first round draft pick to the Dallas Wings for Azura Stevens!

I added the exclamation point because I consider that to be quite surprising.

It appears to imply that both teams consider Lou to be a lesser player than Azura, which you wouldn't expect given their relative productivity at UConn.

This means that Lou and Karlie will be teammates, assuming that Karlie makes the final Dallas roster. It also means that Lou will be receiving passes from Moriah once again.

It could mean that for whatever reason (Lou asked for a trade maybe? or, Chicago got tired of the negative publicity with her sitting on the bench?), and Chicago has been shopping Lou around. If that is so the I'd bet the other teams wouldn't bite without a sweetener.

And Chicago traded Astou Ndour (sp) to Dallas for a 1st round draft pick just the day before.....

so if we say the draft pick swaps cancel each other out than that is Ndour and KLS to Dallas for Azura Stevens.

Also, it doesn't seem that WNBA teams consider 1st round picks as valuable a commodity as in other sports.

Let's hope they make better use of her skillset than Chicago using her to keep a seat warm.
Think Dallas got the best of that deal, with all the bad players they had last year, no Liz or Skylar and Stevens was a bench player. Azura still wants to be like EDD and Stewie, but unlike both of them she doesn't want to mix it up inside.

Apparently one of the Chicago reporters just spoke to Katie at the event she is at in Chicago for the all star weekend, and she apparently just found out she was traded by the reporter, she didn’t even know, it said she was surprised, because the last she heard she was staying in Chicago.

True, the coach didnt even contact her to tell her she was traded. Guy us a real Sh_t Head, IMO.

KLS will be playing with Arike and probably Cox this summer. That's quite a reunion for them as they started for their U16 and U17 teams together.

Dallas is going super young. Its kind of exciting. Hopefully Moriah Jefferson can get healthy and have a productive season. Imagine trying to contain her and Arike and then not being able to say off of KLS. They also got rid of Glory, so maybe they might get another big with the later first round draft picks.

Cool. Dallas is one of the 4 teams (Sparks, Liberty, Aces) I like and follow. Lou was never a good fit in Chicago. Lots of player movement in the off-season in the W.
