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:
June 4, 2015

Chicago Jacki Gemelos Waived
Phoenix Rebecca Tobin Waived
San Antonio Brittany Chambers Waived
San Antonio Ashley Paris Waived

Los Angeles Angel Goodrich Waived
Los Angeles Annalise Pickrel Waived
Los Angeles Blake Dietrick Waived

Minnesota Nika Baric Full Season Suspension
How are fans feeling about their home team rosters?
Which players are you left wondering why they’re still on the roster?
Which athletes should not have been cut?
General league news:
Depth will be on display this year. (Notice that a few of last year’s rookies got displaced by this year’s?)
Seattle could struggle this year, but they’re hoping for a quick rebuild.
Tomorrow’s opening day schedule:
Mystics at Sun
Dream at Liberty
Shock at Lynx
Fever at Sky
Stars at Mercury
