Free Agent Analysis
The Minnesota Lynx official blog has put up some information on the WNBA free agent pool, it is focused on the needs the Lynx roster has, but is interesting. I do have one thing to say to their front office. KEEP YOUR HANDS OFF LJ! OK, we know that this isn't really necessary, obviously she is cored by the Storm, is a restricted free agent and holds loyalty to the franchise, but STOP even thinking about it.
It did not sink in for me until I saw the list that both Dawn Staley and Ticha Penicheiro are unrestricted free agents this season. Neither is likely to leave their current teams, but either is a GREAT option for the Storm since veteran defense at the point is sorely needed. With Zara gone the only option at the point outside of Sue right now is Tanisha Wright. I think she is stronger for the Storm at the 2 guard, so I am sure we will see something done by the coaching staff and front office to shore up the point in free agency. I doubt that hole is filled solely in the draft.
