The dispersal draft for the Sacramento Monarchs was held today. By the time they got down to the Dream, Chelsea Newton was still available. However, the Dream passed and Newton ended up with the Storm.
Incidentally, Chelsea Newton’s PER last year was 9.91, the kind of PER for a player hanging on the edge of the league. (Shalee Lehning’s PER was 8.73, incidentally) I think that the Dream were wise to pass up on a player who has scored 5.1 ppg and 1.6 apg in a five-year career.
