Nice post to get the mid-day hoops thoughts going!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?
Breezy Brii Turner has led the Adelaide Lightning in both scoring and rebounding this season en route to a fourth place finish and a place in the WNBA semi-finals. I can very much see her getting more playing time when she returns back to the U.S./WNBA with the Mercury. Sophie Cunningham has also been gaining confidence as the Aussie season comes to a close.
- If Griner and Turner are on the floor, one could fill that out with a number of guards (DT, Cunningham) and make a trade for another guard or wing (Lou?).
- As both an ND and WBB fan, I'm very interested to see where Skylar ends up next and given what the Mercury received, the draft picks could be of interest to Dallas.
- Lastly, there's a bunch of guards in LA who like the ball now and I can see one of them being moved, if not just for playing time but perhaps payroll pressure.
