This Week from the Liberty, Nets, and Knicks
Liberty: In a series of , the Liberty added two WNBA Champions to the roster yesterday. Forward and guard are both joining the squad after a combined seven years with the Seattle Storm, and while the Liberty may have lost this year’s top draft pick in the trade, who says we need another ?
- As part of this deal, the Liberty traded Kia Nurse and Megan Walker to the Phoenix Mercury and Stephanie Talbot to the Storm. The Liberty is betting on experience rather than youth (well, except for Sabrina), and we can’t wait to see what the payout will be.
Net: The Nets beat the Indiana Pacers 104–94 last night. Without Kevin Durant on the court (he’s expected to return ), fans were glad to see the Nets play to their full potential. So far, they are 4-8 against teams currently sub- and 11-4 against teams over .500. Guess they like to keep it interesting?
Knicks: The Knicks, on the other hand, are adjusting to their newest player, Derrick Rose, who was from the Detroit Pistons on Sunday. Rose will play his second game with the squad tomorrow when they take on the Washington Wizards at 7 p.m. ET.
