Liberty-Mercury-Sky trade finalized

Say what?

NEW YORK, NY (March 30, 2010) – The New York Liberty has acquired All-Star guard Cappie Pondexter and guard Kelly Mazzante from the Phoenix Mercury as part of a three-team trade, it was announced today by Liberty president and general manager Carol Blazejowski. The Liberty sent forwards Shameka Christon and Cathrine Kraayeveld to the Chicago Sky, in exchange New York receives Chicago’s 2010 2nd round draft pick (#16). As part of the deal, Chicago sends forward Candice Dupree to Phoenix.

So all Phoenix gets is Candice Dupree, huh. I still wonder what initiated this whole thing in the first place.

Pondexter and Mazzante will be back on the east coast, which could be good for crowds. The others, I’m not sure.

Bonus: Tulsa Shock jerseys will be unveiled tomorrow.
