Friday for those of you who don’t have a calendar. Teams can negotiate with players and agents. Teams, however, may not sign contracts with free agents until February 1st, 2010.
Our only free agents are Erika de Souza and Jennifer Lacy – at least, I believe they are both restricted free agents. There’s a whole bunch of stuff about RFAs and qualifying offers in the WNBA Player’s Assocation Collective Bargaining Agreement (2008), but it all depends on the players’ salaries and how many years of seniority each player has and if they’re core players or not.
My conclusion: re-sign Erika de Souza, at all costs.
