    I ended up with:

    Sue Bird // Jordin Canada
    Jewell Loyd // Sophie Cunningham
    Katie Lou Samuelson // Kennedy Burke
    Breanna Stewart // Monique Billings/Mikiah Herbert Harrigan
    Stefanie Dolson // Ezi Magbegor/Monique Billings

    plus a draft pick I guess? Not sure if that math 100% worked out, but close enough. I’d be willing to lose Burke too. I think I’m pretty happy with that lineup. I think the subs should have enough defensive power to hold me over.

    This was pretty cool! I assume if I got an error that it means I was supposed to be fired but ownership didn’t catch the problem. 🙂 (I chose to cut Burke and ended up not signing a wing to replace her, I think.)

    Ok, for this game, I will finally subscribe! I am learning so much from you all. But: I had to abort my game before filling my roster due to bugs – on an iPhone. Will try later on a desktop!
