Locked on Women’s Basketball: Roster chaos in Minnesota, explained!
'I think the news that broke initially was that Odyssey Sims had signed her training camp deal with the Lynx and that was something that was completely unexpected', said Lucas
It’s time for another episode of the Locked on Women’s Basketball podcast and this one features host Howard Megdal and Minnesota Lynx beat reporter Lucas Seehafer.
It came as a shocker that Minnesota waived six players and Lucas speaks on the matter:
“I think it’d be an understatement to say that most of us who covered the team or around the team frequently were pretty surprised. But, you know, behind the scenes, a bunch of us reporters talked about what they were going to do?
How are they going to handle this? Because the Lynx didn’t have much in terms of cap space, they were going to have to make tough decisions. And Cheryl Reeve had said that from the beginning; they were going to have to be open and able to make tough decisions.”

Lucas talks about Minnesota signing Odyssey Sims and more on the players they waived:
“I think the news that broke initially was that Odyssey Sims had signed her training camp deal with the Lynx. And that was something that was completely unexpected. Signing Sims and then the release of Crystal Dangerfield. Then Rennia Davis those were kind of the main surprises, it was always kind of a thought that maybe one of them Dangerfield or Davis we’re going to be cut for money reasons. And I don’t think anybody saw Layshia being cut coming.”
