Perth Lynx 2019/2020

So what are people's thoughts on the Perth Lynx roster heading towards the 2019/2020 season?

From what has been made public, they have signed....

Katie Ebzery - Guard
Lauren Mansfield - Guard
Alison Schwagmeyer - Guard/Forward
Nadeen Payne - Forward
Marena Whittle - Guard/Forward

So you would expect that their two imports will likely be a centre and a forward, possibly a power forward.

Do they get Asia Taylor back as that PF?

And what will happen with...

- Kayla Steindl
- Maddi Allen
- Shyla Heal

If they get those three back, plus a couple of solid imports, they're looking okay....

C - *Import*
C - Allen
F - Steindl
F - *Import*
F - Payne
GF - Schwagmeyer
GF - Whittle
G - Mansfield
G - Heal
G - Ebzery

Is this line-up realistic?

Heal signed a 2-year contract with Perth, left after one year, and has now signed for Bendigo.

Shows you how much weight a contract can have... not much.

Wilson, Lavey and Heal at PG for Bendigo.

Heal should have signed for Sydney to get more gametime.

You would think Steindl will be back. She's currently living in Perth with Clint, and he will be back with the Wildcats.

She is actually a pretty important piece in the Lynx puzzle moving forward. Yes, she's at the back end of her WNBL career, but starting quality Aussie bigs are hard to come by, and whether she plays of not could be the difference as to whether the Lynx are championship contenders again.

Scherf was leaving Canberra for a starting role. Maybe she might go to Perth, Adelaide or dandenong.

Bunton-Sydney
Tolo-Canberra
Magbegor-Melbourne
Tobin-Bendigo
Aokuso-Townsville

Adelaide-(Alexander?)
Perth-(?)
Dandenong-(?)

You also have Alanna Smith and Alicia Froling likely to fit in somewhere.
Both at pf probably though.

You'd have to think that Clint & Kayla are a package deal at this point

How much are the Lynx costing the 'Cats per season?

Pretty sure they're looking for a top C import to match the rest of the bigs in the league. Hopefully their second import is a shooter as well. Based on last season Ebzery/Mansfield aren't big producers (but might have more game time with less guards on the roster now). Payne's scoring will help, she's a good get. Tough season for Bendigo ahead.

Ariel Atkins signs with Perth.
Nice signing, though as with seemingly all of our signings, a smaller player than I was expecting

They only really rotated 9 players last year, and it looks like their team on paper is going to be like-for-like compared to last season....

C - Taylor >>> Import
C - Allen >>> Allen
F - Steindl >>> Steindl
F - Collins >>> Payne
GF - Schwagmeyer >>> Schwagmeyer
GF - Farnsworth >>> Whittle
G - Mansfield >>> Mansfield
G - McPhee >>> Atkins
G - Ebzery >>> Ebzery

Out of those nine, they have 5 returning players and 4 new additions.

The 5 returning players cancel each other out so let's have a look at the four additions...

F - Collins >>> Payne
That's a big win.

G - McPhee >>> Atkins
McPhee was hit-and-miss so that's a win.

GF - Farnsworth >>> Whittle
Farnworth on the back end of her career so another win.

C - Taylor >>> Import
This selection will determine whether they are a top-4 team or a championship team.

Overall the Lynx are coming together nicely and look to be no worse off than last year. The import centre selection could be season changing.

Collins is a sf not a pf like Payne, not a comparison.

Bendigo so far

Wilson/Heal
Lavey/Wehrung
.?/.?
Ernst/?
Tobin/?

Hopefully another big pf/c import and a sf or guard.
Also another top notch Aussie like Allen or Smith would be good.

With the Lynx announcing their second import this morning, their roster is now looking like....

C - McGee-Stafford **
C - Allen
F - Payne
GF - Schwagmeyer
GF - Whittle
G - Mansfield
G - Atkins **
G - Ebzery

The latest press release states they now have eight 'signed' players (as above), which makes you wonder what the status of Kayla Steindl is.

They are looking very weak inside so you can only assume she will be signing, unless they have another Aussie big up their sleeve.

Are any other WNBL teams in the same situation? Sharing ownership with their male counterparts?
You'd have to think, with the Wildcats anchoring the organisation, that the Lynx is an attractive destination.

And Perth is a nice place to live if you can afford it (and can afford the airfares.)

Surely they get rid of the wnbl by next year, a few teams constantly struggle to stay afloat.

Steindl isn't playing and hasn't been for some time. Told the Lynx a few months ago.
