Cappie Pondexter to New York Liberty?

Seth Pollack, via Swish Appeal, talked to Phoenix Mercury General Manager Ann Meyers-Drysdale about the rumor that Cappie Pondexter will be traded to New York for Nicole Powell and other players. She didn’t deny it:

“Nothing to report as of yet. I have every intention of hoping to bring Cappie back. She is a restricted free agent and we would like to continue our championship run with her and Diana and hopefully bringing Penny back and Temeka and Ohlde and Tangela. I knew that with Le’Coe it would be difficult to bring her back because of the the structure of the salary situation. We’re still talking to Cappie and I’d love to bring her back.”

So between the lines, it sounds like Pondexter’s the one who wants to get out. Wonder why?
