We are only weeks away from the start of training camp.
The Storm hired former Liberty head coach, Nancy Droche, who has also coached with the Mystics and the Lynx as well as in the College ranks, most recently in Boston. I am not excited, and while many over at Rebkell are quite down on her, I am not worried. Assistant coaches are brought in to round out a system...to bring a specialty knowledge or a communications skill into the picture. I trust that Agler wanted Droche for something he felt would compliment what he plans to do with the team.
Jayda Evans says that Agler is putting the finishing touches on Janell Burse's contract so we should be hearing about that in the coming days.
The buzz at Rebkell's is that the Mystics have given an offer sheet to Ashley Robinson. If the rumor is true, then the Storm have five days to match the offer. According to the current CBA, an offer sheet to a Restricted Free Agent, like Ashley, must be for a term greater than one year. We will have to see how this one plays out. I am glad that someone has officially set her market value so we can close out one more open item.
Mr. Pelton has put up his list of two guards for the draft...I look for three of them, at least, to go in the first round.
