Kennedy cut

The Storm cut rookie Daphanie Kennedy today. This is somber news because the kid can play and has a fighter’s mentality, plus she reminded me of Betty Lennox. The league could use more flashy players like her that can create their own shot. But Kennedy wasn’t versatile and that’s a downside in the WNBA. The Storm has enough scorers and needs a solid back-up PG along with a versatile player that can be thrown in anywhere.
Kennedy, like Allie Quigley, could pop up elsewhere this season and make an impact at her more comfortable SG role. She should definitely be back next season after hopefully playing overseas.
Washington standout Kristen O’Neill, Roneeka Hodges, Doneeka Lewis, and Kimberly Beck are still alive in the fight to make the roster. My prediction still stands, I’d keep Kelly Santos, Beck, and O’Neill. I’d sneak in Lewis, if possible, but the numbers don’t fit. Hodges is playing well in training camp, but she lacks versatility, too.
