Interesting WNBA training camp rosters

WNBA training camp begins tomorrow, and the rosters are out.

There have been some quiet changes to go with the big moves, and I wonder if some of these veterans are really going to be at camp, i.e. have they signed a camp contract?

Other thoughts:

The defending champion Lynx is going to be one tough roster to make. There are six rookies and one more vying for pretty much two spots. I can feel the pain already.

Fever cuts will be brutal too, as they have five newcomers and some decorated veterans on the grind.

The Sun will have some unpleasant decisions to make with this much talent in the building.

The Mercury have a whopping 20 players from which to choose, including a few who have played for other teams, and three rookies.

The Sparks’ list is comparatively small, with 14 players battling for spots.

The Sky is rolling in rookie talent, with seven slated for tryouts as part of the 18. Will Swin Cash really be there? She hasn’t signed a camp contract.

New York seems to be the place where many players from former teams find themselves tomorrow: Ebony Hoffman, Sugar Rodgers, Nicky Anosike. Will Delisha Milton-Jones be there?

No matter which way you slice it at the end, the Shock will be a young team.

The Dream have 15 on their training camp roster, and it looks like not too many tough decisions to make.

The Mystics’ list is cut throat. No one will be safe, whether they’re a rookie or have played for a few years. Will Michelle Snow be there?

The 17-long Storm roster is another place where no one is safe, except maybe Sue Bird, Camille Little, Tanisha Wright and Shekinna Stricklen.

The Stars will have 17 in camp.

Phenomenal amount of rookies on every roster. This year might have been the deepest draft in WNBA history.

I wish we had four more teams to handle all the cuts that are going to be made, as well as all the great players who didn’t get drafted.

Bonus piece:

Lynx hope to copy Sparks and repeat as champions this year.
