News broke last night that WNBA star and Phoenix Mercury guard Cappie Pondexter was the superglue of a major three-team trade. Rumors of the deal surfaced weeks ago with speculation that Pondexter demanded the trade or would sit out the season.
Terms of the deal include the Liberty sending forwards Shameka Christon and Cathrine Kraayeveld to the Chicago Sky. In exchange, New York receives Chicago’s 2010 2nd round draft pick (No. 16).
