Sources have informed @Winsidr that a three team trade is in the works and close to being finalized that would send 2021 MVP Jonquel Jones to the New York Liberty.

gotta have some place to put this, could make the liberty a legit playoff team

obv they were in the playoffs, but this could make them a contender.

the only offseason move that would be bigger than this is if stewart leaves seattle.

terrible look for the aces front office

"To be treated this way by an organization, BY WOMEN who are mothers, who have claimed to 'be in these shoes,' who preach family, chemistry and women's empowerment is disappointing and leaves me sick to my stomach," Hamby continued in her social media post. "We fought for provisions that would finally support and protect player parents. This cannot now be used against me."

As part of the new CBA enacted in 2020, WNBA players receive their full salary while on maternity leave, as well as a childcare stipend. There is a maternity cap exception that allows teams to sign a replacement player at her applicable minimum if they don't have cap room.

That's too many good players!

yeah, this mustve been in the works if they traded hamby the way they did. depending on where stewart lands, aces looking like the team to beat again.

Liberty constructing a rival superteam would be a fun storyline
