The Storm announced today that rookie guard Kimberly Beck has been waived, and the timing is significant. Tomorrow is the date when all player contracts become guaranteed for the remainder of the season, so the waiver wire has been busy around the league.
“If we had waited even one day, we would not have had any flexibility,” explained Storm Head Coach Brian Agler by phone after practice.
With an open roster spot, the Storm will now have the option of potentially adding a post player or a wing if needs arise at those positions.
Starting Tuesday, players can be signed to seven-day contracts, and Agler said the team would probably sign a player in the near future to fill Beck’s roster spot while preserving that flexibility.
