Minnesota Lynx guard Maya Moore has announced that she intends to step away from the court, and the WNBA, for 2019.
“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.”
Argonauts Sign Cory ‘Poop’ Johnson
Get ready for an endless amount of toilet jokes and bathroom humor because the Toronto Argonauts have signed defensive tackle Cory ‘Poop’ Johnson, according to an official team announcement.
Johnson, 26, has played 25 games over two seasons for the Winnipeg Blue Bombers after trying to latch on to NFL teams such as the Kansas City Chiefs and the Atlanta Falcons.
Toronto has been revamping their defensive line and Johnson is another addition that they hope will aid them in their efforts.

averaging 16.4 points, 8.3 rebounds, 2.5 steals and 2.4 assists while shooting 58% from the field.
