As promised, the Storm made a couple of roster decisions this morning, waiving guards Kimberly Beck and Mara Freshour. I can’t say I was surprised. Beck seemed to have fallen behind A’Quonesia Franklin at point guard, where the Storm had four players and will add Tanisha Wright this weekend. Meanwhile, La’Tangela Atkinson and Aja Parham led Freshour on the wing, another spot that will get more crowded with the arrival of Swin Cash.
While he was discussing making moves last night, Storm Head Coach Brian Agler made a point to note that they were really about managing the size of the roster in camp.
“In all honesty, it has absolutely nothing to do with the quality of people they are and the quality of players they are,” Agler said. “It comes down to a short training camp. It’s a numbers game and we’ve got to get some of our key players reps and get them ready for the regular season.”
