Locked on Women’s Basketball: The Chicago Sky face some difficult roster decisions
Howard and James discuss all things Chicago Sky training camp
On today’s Locked on Women’s Basketball episode, host Howard Megdal talks with Chicago Sky beat reporter James Kay. Howard and James discuss all things Chicago Sky training camp and preview some of the roster decisions that the franchise faces.
Power couple Courtney Vandersloot and Allie Quigley are available at training camp early after their overseas commitments ended as a consequence of the tragedy unfolding in Europe. Emma Meesseman is an exciting offseason addition to the reigning champs’ roster. Rookie Sparkle Taylor has made an impact in her time so far at camp. James Kay gets into all of the details.

With such a loaded roster, Kay makes a case for WNBA expansion:
“It is so necessary to expand these rosters with how banged up a lot of these players come in after being overseas. And if, would you rather see Courtney Vandersloot at 100 percent or at 80 percent? Like, again, I just think about it in that perspective. Like were you just able to give these players a little bit of breathing room to rest up playing one of the most difficult sports and honestly one of the sports that is just so taxing on your body? We need, we need expansion.”
