Howard shares his analysis of the franchise’s roster development over the past several seasons:

“I want to talk to you about the Connecticut Sun, a team that I find absolutely fascinating. Simply put, I cannot exaggerate this: they have just been a real constant, a real constant in this league. So let’s try and get inside how and why they’re able to be that way. You know they have not gotten the number one overall pick since Chiney Ogwumike back in 2014. Jonquel Jones, sixth overall pick; Alyssa Thomas was acquired in a draft-day trade in the Tina Charles trade, a trade they had to make; DeWanna Bonner comes in a deal. You know, it’s just fascinating to me that this team has been able to put itself together as a consistent, excellent team, year after year.”

Howard talks to Sun head coach Curt Miller, and versatile Connecticut star Brionna Jones about the twists and turns for the franchise. Don’t miss today’s Friday conversation!
