Sparks Release Cappie Pondexter

Published

on

Earlier this week, the Los Angeles Sparks released two-time WNBA Champion, and 2007 WNBA Finals MVP, Cappie Pondexter, due to her inability to find regular playing time, according to head coach Brian Agler.

“We really enjoyed having her on our team,” Agler said. “It came down to playing time, her desire to play more. We just couldn’t provide that for her with the way Riquna [Williams] and Odyssey [Sims] are playing.”

Pondexter is coming off a season with the Chicago Sky where she averaged 27.2 minutes per game. Those numbers dropped significantly this season, where she saw only 10.2 minutes over 13 games.

“Now she has the ability to talk to 11 other teams,” Agler said, “and we have the ability now to free up cap space to potentially sign somebody else.”

Minnesota Lynx guard Maya Moore has announced that she intends to step away from the court, and the WNBA, for 2019.

Moore announced her decision to sit out the 2019 WNBA season during a post penned on The Players’ Tribune:

“My focus in 2019 will not be on professional basketball, but will instead be on the people in my family, as well as on investing my time in some ministry dreams that have been stirring in my heart for many years.

“I will certainly miss the day-to-day relationships with my teammates and basketball family this season, but my no for the 2019 pro season allows me to say yes to my family and faith family like I never have before.

Moore, 29, has played her entire career in Minnesota.

I’m sure this year will be hard in ways that I don’t even know yet, but it will also be rewarding in ways I’ve yet to see, too.”
