Team rosters set, and it’s time to play ball

In an ideal world, we’d be able to go to the WNBA’s main page, or ESPN’s main women’s basketball page, and click on a link that would take us to all the WNBA team rosters. That has been the case in years past. But no such luck this year.

I give the Lynx and Liberty mad props for having their rosters together two days early. But though final cuts were finally made today, many other teams have not updated the rosters on their own sites. So the best we can do right now is to ascertain those lists based on today’s transactions:
