Washington’s number of locals in the WNBA is dwindling. Former Kennewick star Leilani Mitchell is dipping into her Australian roots, skipping the 2014 WNBA season in order to make the Opals national team. Without her in New York, there’s just four players in the WNBA with ties to our state.

The most was seven when Zags star Katelan Redmon and Kirkland’s Cathrine Kraayeveld were on the list.

Currently there’s wing Alex Montgomery (Lincoln HS) in New York. She averaged 17.5 minutes off the bench in the Liberty’s 1-1 start. Indiana PG Briann January (Lewis and Clark HS) is playing the best of the group, although her team is 0-2 to begin the season. January is averaging 14.5 points and 5.5 assists as a starter for the Fever.

In Chicago, All-Star PG Courtney Vandersloot (Kentwood HS) is guiding the Sky to a 2-0 start. She’s still struggling with turnovers but averaging 10.5 points and 6.5 assists. Rounding out the list is Minnesota’s second-year PG Lindsey Moore (Kentwood HS). She’s averaging 13 minutes off the bench and expected to do more, according to local media.

Only Moore will make multiple trips to KeyArena this season. But who are you most excited to see?
