New Storm Camp Signings

The Storm added Tiffini Johnson and Tocarra Williams to their camp roster last week while I was on vacation. The ratings below represent career numbers, not simply the last year they played.

Tiffani JohnsonHouston 200463.6894.28
Tocarra WilliamsSan Antonio 200476.5581.69

Neither player played in the league in 2005. Tocarra Williams played one year with San Antonio, starting 4 games and playing 26. She is not much of an offensive player, and appears to be on the camp roster for her potential defense on the perimeter. Tiffani Johnson played for the Mercury in 1998 and the Comets from 2000-2004. She was a fairly solid player during that time, but clearly she is an option for the last post off the bench should Simone decide to retire. Her defense is her strength, but since her six years in the league qualify her for the same veteran minimum that Simone would command, she would have to significantly outplay Simone in practice to make the roster given Simone's value to the franchise from a fan and chemistry perspective should Simone decide to return this year.
