The week leading up to the first WNBA regular season games is never fun, because this is when the cuts that really hurt start going down.
Kiesha Brown was waived by the Mystics today, making her the second Spark from last year (after Murriel Page) to find themselves out of work this summer. San Antonio waived Candyce Bingham, which bummed me out, as I was so hoping she’d make it. Ketia Swanier and Ashley Hayes were also let go by the Sun.
With the slim 11-player rosters this year, there will be more carnage to come, unfortunately.
The Phoenix Mercury is the first WNBA team to have a branded jersey, as the league and the Lifelock company announced this morning a contract that extends through 2011: the Phoenix LifeLock
I know money is always good for the league, but ugh. The Mercury should be able to keep its name. No way are fans going to be chanting “go Lifelock!”
