WNBL 2019 Off-Season News

I know the finals haven't yet but there's movement happening at other clubs so we might as well start a thread to track it all.

We already know that Simon Pritchard won't be coaching Bendigo next season, and that GMs Richard Goodbody and Justin Nelson have moved on.

Today it was announced that Larissa Anderson advised she would not be seeking a new contract.

What was Chambers winning record this year at Sydney?

Chambers' record this year was bad but it was a less resourced squad and had major injury troubles. I don’t think she suddenly lost her ability to coach.

Chambers record was 2 wins 19 losses.

I doubt Chambers will get the position. It will be another wnbl coach.

Chambers issues with Sydney this year was more likely to be an imbalance is her own availability, than the few injuriesthey had as most teams had injuries throughout the season, flying in for trainings and then straight out isn't ideal, no coach can be on top of their team needs with that schedule, she should have signed with a Rangers this season.
Mark Wright is back coaching at Melbourne tigers women, he may put his hand up, but a little rumour has someone already in the Rangers ranks is looking at the position ( and it’s not Lowe) reading between the lines of Rangers media release, they will be looking at not only those with prior experience but also those new to coaching ( but not basketball) at that level.
That pretty much opens it up for anyone LOL.

You clearly paid very little attention to the league this season.

Would be interesting to know if Chambers was responsible for recruiting Amanda Johnson, the Sydney Import this season? That decision was costly to their season!

Chambers is a terrible coach. Another whose ability hides behind great teams yet when the crunch comes falters.

Rumour is that Rangers are in talks to move to a private ownership model. New admin support needed to ensure success.

Maybe not a popular opinion but I'd like to see burnette take over dandenong.
He's very good at developing youth and he's already located there. They need help in that department.

Harrower maybe back at bendigo?
Hopefully somehow Molloy goes and chambers comes in, matybe kereama takes over.

Would like to see a few ins from college and some more high quality imports from overseas. Coffey, nurse, taylor, mcphee, Allen type.

College kids coming home potentially. Bench and dp spots..
Smith, O'Neill to dandenong?
Froling to Townsville?
Mangakahia to ?
Nakkasoglu to ?
Turner, west etc

I would say every chance seeing as how she is already playing under Mark Wright in NBL1, and hes the GM for the new team that has NOTHING to do with Dandenong Rangers any more.
will this new team have to honor any player contracts that Rangers had with other players that extended past last season, or is everything new?

I don't believe they are doing enough scouting. You have Perth with 2 solid imports and other teams signing imports with less talent than what we already have here.
