This move gives Minnesota the needed salary slot for the reported signing of Aerial Powers, as teams can only have 6 guaranteed contracts. Sims’ contract was the casualty.


Rachel Galligan@RachGall
Sources have informed @winsidr that the Indiana Fever are expected to waive Sims, who will receive her full 2021 salary of $119k and become a free agent.


The one projection I read was that the Lynx would sign Powers to a guaranteed deal and Sims might resign with the Lynx under a non guaranteed deal.

Maya Moore not coming back again in 2021.

hasn't retired, but out this long, probably should.

And if she doesn't want to play in MN, should just say so, and can move on.

I think Maya has moved on from basketball as a whole. I don't think it has anything to do with the Lynx. She was a FA and signed an extension with the Lynx when she announced she was stepping away from hoops. The Lynx knew what she was going to do when they signed her.

I figure if anyone deserves the benefit of the doubt, its Maya. Basketball has been her life for so long, she probably doesn't even know if the itch to play will come back or not.

She's not financially impacting the Lynx, and I'm sure Reeve has a contingency plan if she does decide to return to basketball.

I'm agreeing with you. has not played since 2018. Maybe they have discussed it.

I think we all agree that the Lynx are best off proceeding as if she isn't returning. Reeve appears to be doing exactly that.

They seem to be rebuilding fine without her. They seem to be headed in a good direction. They had a decent year last year. It's the one team in this state where the system and the organization are stronger than any one player.

Build around Collier (for now). She's the real deal.

Reeve has done an amazing job. I really can't say enough about it. In two years she has overhauled the entire lineup around Fowles and not missed the playoffs in the process. They have to be considered one of the favorites heading into next season.

And we made the Final Four last year with Fowles only playing in 6 of 22 games, and a total of 18 minutes in 1 Playoff game.

Lynx picking 9th in WNBA Draft.
ESPN Projection

9. Minnesota Lynx: Michaela Onyenwere, SF, UCLA


AP Photo/Stephen Spillman
Onyenwere will have to improve her guard skills in the WNBA, but she is well aware of that and has been working on it. That includes her 3-point shot. Onyenwere, a tweener by size at 6 feet tall who averaged 19.1 points and 7.2 rebounds as a senior, doesn't necessarily fit perfectly into any WNBA position coming out of college. But she has a great motor and could step in to provide the Lynx a needed boost of physicality as she adjusts to the pro game.
