The WNBA and the players agreed on a plan to play the 22-game season on Monday which means there will be WNBA basketball this season. A few teams have made a few roster moves. The Las Vegas Aces signed guard Alex Bentley, Minnesota Lynx announced Cecilia Zandalasini will sit out the season and signed Megan Huff. Also, the Indiana Fever released Betnijah Laney.
Aces Add Bentley
With Kelsey Plum missing the season due to a torn Achilles tendon, the Aces needed another ball handler. Bentley was an All-Star back in 2015 and averaged 9.0 points and 3.0 assists per game. Bentley is an elite ball-handler, so the Aces will benefit there. Also, Bentley is a willing three-point shooter but only shot 29 percent from three last season. With the stars the Aces have Bentley will see a lot of open shots. Hopefully, she will be able to knock them down.
Minnesota Makes Roster Changes
Minnesota Lynx’s Cecilia Zandalasini will sit out the 2020 season due to personal reasons. Zandalasini has played for the Lynx since 2017 and was a member of the 2017 championship team. This will be the second consecutive season Zandalasini has missed; she did not play in 2018.
With a roster spot available, the Lynx went on to sign Megan Huff. Huff was drafted by the New York Liberty in the 2019 draft but has not played WNBA basketball in a regular-season game. Huff went on to play for TTT Riga in the EuroLeague. She averaged 11 points and 9.2 rebounds per game. Huff will provide depth and versatility to the forward position for the Lynx.
Indiana Releases Laney
The Indiana Fever released veteran Betnijah Laney; she was a key contributor off the bench last season for the Fever. Laney averaged 5.6 points and 4.2 rebounds per game last season. In a corresponding move, Indiana activated Stephanie Mavunga to their active roster. Mavunga is recovering from a plantar fascia injury she suffered in the French LFB League. Before she was injured, she averaged 19 points and 10 rebounds per game.
