Sky management is a **** joke. Like honestly 10 times as incompetent as GarPax.

First the bull with Sylvia Fowles and now this. Unforgivable.

That SherronShabazz guy better be drafting a ruthless hit piece as we speak.


What happened here? Why did EDD want out?

If the Bulls do, you would be complaining to much to ever hear it.


NBA fan logic we need to trade one of two best players because (Player X) one needs to shine more.

Well it seems like she was willing to sit out an entire season of Chicago wouldn't trade her, so there is that.
Why so serious?

Seems like their FO has done everything in their power to piss off the franchise player.

Still idiotic over all.

They got in return

All-Star center Stefanie Dolson, last year's No. 7 pick Kahleah Copper, and the No. 2 pick in the 2017 Draft.

Dolson.

Delle Donne has become discouraged by the "revolving door" in Chicago, a source requesting anonymity put it, as players and coaches have left the team or were fired. The Sky dismissed Pokey Chatman in late October and saw three assistants leave within the last year, including well-liked former NBA big man Wayne "Tree" Rollins. In 2015, Sylvia Fowles forced the team to trade her to the Minnesota Lynx by sitting out.

Delle Donne's representatives declined to comment, as did Sky officials and Mystics coach and general manager Mike Thibault.

Rumblings about her desire to play in Washington began last summer. Her hometown in Delaware is within commuting distance, and on several occasions she has expressed a strong desire to be near her older sister, Lizzie, who was born blind and deaf, has autism and cerebral palsy and communicates with Elena through touch and smell.

Delle Donne said in a podcast interview last month that she's looking for a place for her and fiancee Amanda Clifton to raise children.

"You got to think about your family and where you want to be living and where you want them to grow up and make some traditions," she told Howard Megdal on "Locked on Women's Basketball."

Among the other reasons Delle Donne wants out of Chicago, according to those sources, are that she felt out of place on the team — and perhaps with the leadership role expected of her — and was dissatisfied that the front office wasn't marketing and investing in the team as much as in past seasons.

What happened here? Why did EDD want out?

She wanted to be closer to home. She has a special needs sibling who requires attention

I think the Sky got a pretty fair haul in return, all things considered

Man does it feel like crap to be the city that has the farm system in that league. They once had Sylvia Fowles and EDD at the same time. Both went on to win championships elsewhere after demanding out and being traded for pennies on the dollar

But do we honestly care if the Chicago Sky ever wins a championship? 99.9% of people here change the channel as soon as ESPN or NBATV show WNBA highlights. Hell, no one here knew their was a championship game yesterday if it wasn’t for them following ESPN on Instagram.

Not going to lie, I woke up this morning, saw the notification, and was surprised. As I thought they had won the championship several weeks ago :lol:

I don’t consider myself a misogynist but apparently I am. I had to look up what city the Mystics were in.
