Just two days into training camp, the Seattle Storm is moving toward possible decisions on the first roster moves of the season. After Monday’s practice, Storm Head Coach Brian Agler said cuts were possible as soon as after Tuesday’s session.
“We’ve got to move forward,” said Agler. “We’re getting to the point where it’s hard to get everybody into practice.”
The Storm has 13 players in camp. 12 of them were on the floor Monday, when Katie Smith sat out after what Agler described as a “little medical procedure.” She’s expected back as a “full go” on Tuesday. Right now, the Storm appears to have a glut at the guard positions. Including Shekinna Stricklen, who can play either wing spot, six of the team’s 13 players are guards.
- Agler said that day two was marked by, “More emphasis on the defensive end. We spent time on it. We were fatigued, but we worked through it and we got a lot of reps for our veteran people and some of the people we’re looking at. We’ll just be ready for tomorrow.”
