Scandalous WNBA transactions

Today’s WNBA transactions include one possibly controversial waive:

February 10, 2015

Team Player Transaction

Chicago Courtney Vandersloot Contract Signed
Indiana Briana Butler Contract Signed
Indiana Sydney Carter Contract Signed
Indiana Lynetta Kizer Contract Signed
Indiana Tyaunna Marshall Contract Signed
Los Angeles Lindsey Harding Waived
New York Chelsea Hopkins Contract Signed
Phoenix Marta Xargay Casademont Contract Signed
Washington Armintie Herrington Contract Signed
Washington Ivory Latta Contract Extension Signed

Some have hit me up today asking “what is LA doing waiving Lindsey Harding?” From a stats standpoint, it’s not hard to see why the Sparks let her or Armintie Herrington – waived last week – go.

Harding came from Atlanta in 2013 with much fanfare. Her first season she averaged 10.9 points per game, and last year she was at 5.7. Herrington averaged 3.9 points per game last year.

The current rumor is that LA is going to sign Erin Phillips, who played with the Mercury last year. We shall see.

I’m excited for USC graduate Briana Butler and Georgia Tech star Tyaunna Marshall, who are getting chances with the Fever. Ditto San Diego State floor general Chelsea Hopkins, who is going to New York.

Ivory Latta and the Mystics seem made for each other.

Bonus:

Evie Goldstein is the new WNBPA director of operations.
