5-time WNBA All-Star Angel McCoughtry and Lynx reach agreement

Five-time WNBA All-Star Angel McCoughtry reached an agreement with the Minnesota Lynx on Friday, a league source confirmed to The Athletic. GrlsTlkSportsTV reported the news first.

McCoughtry is an unrestricted free-agent and will be leaving the Aces to join the Lynx. The two-time Olympic gold-medalist was out the entire 2021 season for the Aces after suffering a right knee injury during a preseason game against the Sparks. She was diagnosed with a torn ACL and meniscus.

McCoughtry injured her left knee and was sidelined for the remainder of the season along with the entire 2019 season. She averaged 14.4 points per game and 5.1 rebounds in her first season with the Aces in 2020.

Lynx star Napheesa Collier announced her pregnancy in November and is expecting a baby girl in May. She will miss the beginning of the WNBA season. McCoughtry can fill the spot at forward for Minnesota in her absence.

Really hope we're able to resign Davis to one of the 2 Hardship spots.

The Minnesota Lynx announced Tuesday afternoon the signing of free agent point guard Odyssey Sims to a training camp contract.

The team waived waived six players in order to make space for Sims and get the roster down to the necessary 11 players before Thursday’s deadline. Among those included in the cuts were incumbent starting point Layshia Clarendon, 2020 WNBA Rookie of the Year Crystal Dangerfield and 2021 first-round pick Rennia Davis, as well as 2022 draft picks Kayla Jones and Hannah Sjerven, and veteran guard Yvonne Turner.

Minnesota Lynx Sign Forward Rennia Davis to Hardship Contract

The Minnesota Lynx this afternoon announced they have agreed to a “mutual separation” with guard Odyssey Sims, and have released guard Yvonne Turner as well as forwards Rennia Davis and Nina Milić from hardship contracts.

The moves come less than an hour after the team announced they had agreed to a buyout with forward Angel McCoughtry.

Sims was signed a little over a week ago, on May 3, in an attempt to remedy unsteady point guard play throughout Lynx camp that resulted in the waiving of one-time All-Star Layshia Clarendon and 2020 Rookie of the Year Crystal Dangerfield.

After playing in the team’s first two games of the season — holding averages of 9.5 points on 30.4/25.0/44.4 shooting, 3.5 rebounds, 3.5 assists to 2.5 turnovers, 0.5 steals and a block in 27.0 minutes per game — the former Baylor standout did not play on Tuesday night against the Fever and was not given a status designation.

Cheryl Reeve said postgame “Odyssey is handling a personal matter” and declined to answer any further questions about the topic.

Additionally, Minnesota released Turner, Davis and Milić from their hardship contracts. No information is presently available about whether any of them will be re-signed to standard contracts with the team. Given the absences of Kayla McBride (overseas commitments), Damiris Dantas (Lisfranc injury) and now Natalie Achonwa (hamstring strain), Minnesota should still be eligible to sign at least one player to hardship exception contracts after this morning’s signing of guard Evina Westbrook.

The Lynx now have two roster spots after agreeing to a buyout with McCoughtry and waiving Sims. Expect more moves to follow. When they come through, we’ll have the news for you here at Canis Hoopus.

WNBA superstar Brittney Griner has been sentenced to nine years in a Russian prison for drug possession and smuggling. Griner had been found guilty of the charges in court and finally received her sentencing on Thursday.

Griner was arrested in Feb. for carrying cannabis oil vape cartridges onto an airplane while she was playing for her long-time overseas team UMMC Ekaterinburg. Griner said she made an honest mistake by carrying the vape cartridges while traveling. Russian prosecutors had asked for 9.5 years before the ruling. The time she’s served in custody since her arrest will count towards her sentence.

The United States and Russian have engaged in conversations about a potential agreement around her release, but no agreement has been reached yet. Earlier this summer, it was reported that the White House offered to release Russian international arms dealer Viktor Bout in exchange for Griner and fellow American detainee Paul Whelan.

Griner has played for UMMC Ekaterinburg since 2014 during the WNBA offseason. President Biden issued the following statement after the sentencing:

quote:

President Biden: "Today, American citizen Brittney Griner received a prison sentence that is one more reminder of what the world already knew: Russia is wrongfully detaining Brittney. It's unacceptable, and I call on Russia to release her immediately."


Griner was carrying two cartridges that each contained one gram of cannabis oil. Americans can legally purchase the same cannabis oil cartridges she was carrying in 19 states for recreational purposes.

Ignorance is usually only a defense in the US and maybe a few other places, but I'm shocked to see the length of the sentence for such a small amount.
I'm sure the Russians are making a point but unfortunate for sure.

I'm also surprised how many still seem to be going over there to play.

Hard to turn down 10x the money to play overseas.

ESPN Women's Hoops@ESPN_WomenHoop
WNBA draft lottery results:

No. 1 pick: Indiana Fever
No. 2 pick: Minnesota Lynx
No. 3 pick: Atlanta Dream
No. 4 pick: Washington Mystics

Canis Hoopus@canishoopus
Jumping to No. 2 is a huge win for the Lynx, who held a 75.15% chance of landing No. 4 and a 14.45% chance of landing No. 2.

Whether the Lynx use the pick to select Stanford star G Haley Jones, a different player, or package it in a trade, it'll be a 2023 season-changing asset.
