Morgan Tuck to sign with The Seattle Storm
They also have Ezi Magbegor, coming this year, so don't expect Paris back.Seems like the Sparks are adding a fair bit of scoring punch on the perimeter. Brown couldn't find many minutes in the rotation, I would think same fate is in store for Gulich (unless they move somebody else).
Remains to be see how much McCoughtry has left in the tank, but that could be a big addition for the Aces.
If Seattle adds Tuck, does that mean Langhorne or Paris is gone? Is she healthy? How many UConn players can they possibly fit on their roster?
She's done well on the Olympics playing a smaller role. I'm guessing coming into Vegas with big personalities (Aja and Liz) her role was discussed prior. Vegas is loaded but has some big questions regarding:
Geno loves Angel. She brings (or at least brought) alot of intangibles and defensive effort. I think she can fit in just fine. Still, when your best player is a show me attention seeking crybaby, I do not see them ever winning a WNBA championship.
Are there enough basketballs to go around in Las Vegas? My gosh.
“She is an elite level scorer who loves to attack the basket, and is also one of the best defenders in the league. When she steps on the court, we immediately become a stronger team on both ends of the floor out on the perimeter." So says Bill Laimbeer of the signing.
Pick #5 is a little high for Crystal but in the WNBA you can get away with it. The Mystics are famous for drafting people later than projected in the draft. (see Ariel Atkins, Kiara Leslie). But if Phoenix really likes Dangerfield, they should draft her.Curious to see what Phoenix does with the picks and cap space. Obviously Diggins-Smith is in play. But everyone loves fake trades (and most love UConn)...
#7 and #10 for Katie Lou? Would Chicago be willing to get out of a draft pick that made no sense last year? And just to make it more UConn crazy, use #5 on Crystal? Play Brianna Turner more and try spacing the floor with DT, Crystal, Lou, and Sophie Cunningham?
Still doubt it could happen but maybe go after Chelsea Gray in a sign and trade?
