Lovewomensbasketball.com gives us some information about the WNBA owner's meeting scheduled for the end of the month. They spoke to general manager Piotr Dunin-Suligostowski of Polish team Wisla Can-Pack who provides some information about an owner's meeting at the end of October:
…Athletes like the MVP of the WNBA – which Charles is – has many responsibilities, including the ones related to the presentation of public image of the league. Additionally this matter is complicated because at the end of the month there is a very important WNBA board and team owner meeting regarding the future of the WNBA. Their wish is to have their best athletes present during that meeting in support of the league.
It's very odd that athletes would be asked to attend an WNBA owner's meeting at the end of October, particularly when Euroball is in full swing. Dunin-Suligostowski's statement creates more questions than it answers.
