Kayla Alexander – Will have to wait and see if a team offers her a contract. I think Chicago will offer her a contract again, but it could be a while as Chicago has other concerns they need to take care of.
Seimone Augustus – Will re-sign with the Minnesota Lynx. I just don’t see her leaving the Lynx because she has been pretty loyal with the Lynx franchise since she was drafted. I think it could be a one or maybe two year deal as retirement possibly looms.
Evgeniia Belyakova – I don’t see her coming over due to the Olympics so in my opinion, I don’t see her signing with a WNBA team this year.
Alex Bentley – Alex Bentley is a great free agent and a great player/scorer so any team will be lucky to have her. I just don’t know what team that will be yet.
Sue Bird – Sue Bird will re-sign with the Seattle Storm. In my opinion, I think it is just a one year deal because Sue Bird will turn 40 in October, and I just don’t see her playing past that age. She has also hinted at retirement when the new WNBA CBA was announced and she said that the younger players would benefit greatly from this new CBA.
DeWanna Bonner – DeWanna Bonner has been with Phoenix since she was drafted and although this is tough, I can see DeWanna Bonner leaving Phoenix IF she is given a better contract from another team than what Phoenix can offer her.
Essence Carson – I think that the Phoenix Mercury will offer Essence Carson another contract. I think it will be for one year but it could be possible that another team gives her a better deal.
Layshia Clarendon – I can see Layshia Clarendon playing for another team this season as Connecticut may not look to re-sign her.
Sydney Colson – Sydney Colson could be back with the Las Vegas Aces, maybe on a one to two year contract.
Ana Dabovic – I don’t see Ana Dabovic coming over to the WNBA this year. I could be wrong but with the Olympics looming, she can just pass on the WNBA.
Blake Dietrick – I think Seattle will look to re-sign her but I don’t see them in a rush to do so. I think Blake Dietrick will have to wait for a contract.
Elena Delle Donne – Per Mike Thibault who was a guest on the W-Insidr podcast, Elena Delle Donne has a verbal agreement to come back to the Mystics. She can officially sign on February 10th.
Stefanie Dolson – Stefanie Dolson will most likely join another team as Chicago has both Allie Quigley and Courtney Vandersloot as unrestricted free agents and will need to throw a lot of money behind them which results in less money for Dolson. I think she ends up with another team if Chicago cannot offer what she is looking for.
Celine Dumerc – I don’t see Celine Dumerc coming over to the WNBA this year just like some other fellow Europeans due to the Olympics looming.
Megan Gustafson – Per Dorothy Gentry at the Athletic, Megan Gustafson was given a qualifying extended offer.
Bria Hartley – I think Bria Hartley will re-sign with the New York Liberty. It could be possibly just a short term deal, however.
Glory Johnson – Per Dorothy Gentry at the Athletic, Dallas will do everything it can to keep Glory Johnson as a member of the Wings.
Sara Krnjic – Have never seen her play in the WNBA. Don’t see her coming this year either.
Camille Little – Camille Little has retired.
Sancho Lyttle – Sancho Lyttle has retired.
Brooke McCarty-Williams – Brooke McCarty – Williams will be with another team as she was not offered a contract per the Athletic’s Dorothy Gentry.
Angel McCoughtry – Angel McCoughtry is an interesting case. The Dream did not core Angel as they allowed her to test free agency for the first time in her career. Angel McCoughtry is a talented player. She will be looking to make the maximum amount allowed and some teams could offer it to her. There are a variety of teams that could do so for her services OR she could be back with the Atlanta Dream but on a smaller contract. However, that could be a long shot.
Emma Meesseman – Per Mike Thibault who was a guest on the W-Insidr podcast, Emma Meesseman will be back via a verbal agreement. She can officially sign on February 10th.
Kim Mestdagh – I don’t foresee her coming over to the WNBA this year but if she does, she will most likely re-sign with the Washington Mystics.
Carley Mijovic – I don’t see her coming to the WNBA.
Leilani Mitchell – I think she will re-sign with the Phoenix Mercury again, on a two year contract.
Courtney Paris – Courtney Paris will re-sign with the Seattle Storm, maybe on a one to two year deal.
Epiphanny Prince – Epiphanny Prince will re-sign with the Las Vegas Aces after she played less than half a season for them last season. I think the Aces will offer her a one year deal.
Allie Quigley – Allie Quigley is one of the Chicago Sky’s best players and I don’t see the Sky giving up on that. I think she will be re-signed by the Chicago Sky on a long term deal.
Danielle Robinson – I think Danielle Robinson will be back with the Minnesota Lynx on a one to two year deal.
Sugar Rodgers – I think Sugar Rodgers will be back with the Las Vegas Aces. The Aces may offer her a three year contract.
Tierra Ruffin-Pratt – Tierra Ruffin-Pratt will re-sign with the Los Angeles Sparks, however there could be a chance that another team may offer her a better deal.
Karlie Samuelson – She will have to wait for a contract.
Shekinna Stricklen – Shekinna Stricklen will re-sign with the Connecticut Sun. I think it will be for a two year contract.
Carolyn Swords – Carolyn Swords will be back with the Las Vegas Aces Aces. I think the Aces will offer her a two year deal.
Kristi Toliver – Per Mike Thibault who was on the W-Insidr podcast, Kristi Toliver and the Mystics will come to an agreement about a contract.
Tahlia Tupaea – I don’t see her in the WNBA this year.
Courtney Vandersloot – Courtney Vandersloot is the Chicago Sky’s best player. There is no way that Chicago lets her walk away without giving her the best offer. Courtney Vandersloot has made Chicago her home and I think both sides can work on a great deal to make each other happy.
Tanisha Wright – Tanisha Wright has retired.
Isabelle Yacoubou – I don’t see her in the WNBA this year.
Tamera Young – Tamera Young will be re-signed with the Las Vegas Aces. I think the Aces will offer her a two year deal.
Shavonte Zellous – Shavonte Zellous will be re-signed with the Seattle Storm. The Storm will probably offer her a two to three year deal.
