Several teams made cuts one day early today, and finalized their rosters.
The Storm and the Sparks are the only two teams to accurately reflect the 11-woman rosters on their web pages right now. The Silver Stars, Lynx and Fever put out enough information about cuts that fans can still look at their websites and put two and two together. Teams that are still question marks at this hour are the Shock, the Sun, the Mercury, the Sky, the Liberty, the Dream and the Mystics.
Look at the brutality from yesterday and today:
The Phoenix Mercury waived Chastity Reed, Dymond Simon and Amanda Johnson
The Connecticut Sun waived Sidney Spencer
The San Antonio Silver Stars waived Loree Moore and Porsha Phillips
The Chicago Sky waived Felicia Chester
The Los Angeles Sparks waived Khadijah Rushdan, Ashley Shields and Darxia Morris
Shock Coach Gary Kloppenberg has been perhaps the most vocal in saying how much he dislikes making cuts, because every player teams have to let go are WNBA-ready. Indeed. The league needs two more teams to hold all of the amazing athletes that just got cut. It’s heart-breaking.
