Dallas Wings’ veteran Liz Cambage is unsure about her future in the WNBA as the Wings closed out the final home game at College Park Center against the Las Vegas Aces this past Friday, as she may not return to the league in 2019.

Cambage is scheduled to represent Australia in the FIBA World Cup before beginning another season overseas in China and will then make a decision regarding her future in the WNBA.

league in 2019.

During an interview Tuesday ahead of Dallas’ matchup against Connecticut, Cambage said a return to the WNBA next season is still up in the air. At the conclusion of the WNBA season, Cambage is scheduled to represent Australia in the FIBA World Cup before beginning another season overseas in China.

“I’ll see how I feel after China,” Cambage said, according to ESPN’s Sean Hurd. “I think I probably have five days at home [in Australia] for the rest of this year, until February next year. We’ll see how I’m feeling.”

Cambage noted the physical toll of an WNBA season may not be worth the investment.

“I’ve said this many times: [The WNBA] doesn’t pay my bills … playing here doesn’t pay my bills,” Cambage said. “We make more money overseas. I’m ready to have next summer off and focus on getting a European contract where its 10 seasons here worth the pay.

“It sucks because I love to be here, I love to put the game out there, I love what comes with playing here. But at the end of the day, for my longevity, I worry about my body, my mind and my soul. I really don’t get paid enough to be beaten up every game. I’m not a WWE wrestler and that’s how it feels sometimes out on the court.”

Cmabage leads the league with  22.8 points per game, and is 2nd in the league with  9.7 rebounds.

Alouettes Release Johnny Manziel

The Montreal Alouettes have released former NFL quarterback Johnny Manziel.

Montreal traded two first round draft picks to acquire Manziel last year, and the CFL has announced that it will not approve a Manziel contract should another CFL team attempt to sign him.

Apparently, Manziel violated his contract with the Alouettes, according to the team.

With the AAF in play, and the XFL arriving next season, it is likely that Manziel is looking to latch on with either of those two leagues as opposed to continuing to play in the CFL.

However, if Manziel is looking to draw significant interest his play in the CFL left much to be desired.

Manziel appeared in 8 games for Montreal during his tenure, throwing 5 touchdowns verse 7 interceptions, certainly disappointing numbers that won’t elicit much excitement.
