“While this was never the way I envisioned getting to 12, I am excited by the talent, experience and versatility that this roster gives us,” head coach Nicki Collen said. “We have the ability to play fast and spread the floor offensively with threats to score the basketball at all five positions, regardless of lineup.”
Maite Cazorla, Mikayla Pivec and Kobi Thornton have all elected to forego the 2020 WNBA season, and Elīna Babkina, who had signed a training camp contract, has been waived.
This season marks the organization’s 13th season in the WNBA. The league is conducting ongoing scenario planning around the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic on the upcoming season and will provide updates regarding any changes to key dates.
