Storm cuts Washington standout Kristen O’Neill

Storm coach Brian Agler liked Washington standout Kristen O’Neill’s work-ethic, but she ultimately didn’t fit into his system. He announced her being cut this morning. The roster now stands at 13 players with one more cut expected to keep the Storm under their $772,000 max salary cap. Here’s the release:
SEATTLE STORM MAKES ROSTER MOVE
SEATTLE, May 15, 2008 — The Seattle Storm announced today that guard Kristen O’Neill has been waived from the team. The roster now stands at 13 players.
O’Neill, a 2006 graduate from the University of Washington, averaged 2.5 points and 1.0 rebounds in two pre-season games for the Storm earlier this year.
“It’s always great to have a local player in Storm training camp,” Storm CEO Karen Bryant said. “I know a lot of fans were rooting for Kristen. We were all very impressed by her and have expressed a desire to keep her involved in the Storm organization this summer.”
“Making some of the final cuts is always difficult, but letting Kristen go was an incredibly tough decision,” Storm Head Coach and Director of Player Personnel Brian Agler said. “Kristen is very competitive. She is a great defender, shoots the ball well and her work ethic is unmatched. I’ve encouraged her to continue to work hard and to stay prepared to capitalize if the opportunity arises.”
