Earlier this year
WNBA 2017 Season
With the signing period already underway this thread is overdue.
In a nutshell so far:
* Tamika Catchings, Penny Taylor, Swin Cash & Delisha Milton-Jones have retired
* As has Jayne Appel-Marinelli, but it just didn't quite seem right to put her name in the same sentence as those 4 champions
* Angel McCoughtry is taking the season off. Good luck Atlanta, you'll need it!
* Plenette Pierson has signed with Minnesota as a free agent
* 3-team trade with Kia Vaughn & Bria Hartley going to NY, Carolyn Swords going to Seattle, Seattle's #6 draft pick going to Washington
* Phoenix traded pick #5 + Isabelle Harrison to San Antonio in exchange for Danielle Robinson
(Phoenix will also be without Mistie Bass this season due to pregnancy, so suddenly their front court stocks look a bit low. I wonder if Cayla George will have another crack)
* Connecticut traded Aneika Henry-Morello to Atlanta in exchange for Reshanda Gray. (meh)
* The big Elena Delle Donne trade to Washington hasn't been officially announced, but shouldn't be far away. I hope they're not waiting for a quiet news day in Washington DC to do it! ;)
* Some rumblings about a significant trade involving Phoenix - presumably Candice Dupree. That could be awkward.
Draft date is not yet set but should be mid-April
Season tips off on May 13th
