Tulsa Shock President Chats About Cambage

Cathy Furlong - Thank you Steve. Is a team obligated to keep a player under contract regardless of their performance? Steve Swetoha - Cathy, there are guaranteed contracts and non-guaranteed contracts in the WNBA. SS - Cathy, Liz is under a rookie contract and she is under contract until 2014. CF - Can a rookie contract be revoked? SS - Cathy, players that are protected are the only contracts guaranteed. CF - I guess I can get to my point: do we have to honor our contract with Liz for 2013, or do we have the option to terminate the contract? SS - Cathy, any player that is under a rookie contract is considered "not guaranteed."Steve Swetoha, Tulsa Shock president, answered questions on Facebook regarding Liz Cambage's recently announced decision not to return to Tulsa in 2012. I thought the above interchange (woven throughout the Q&A) was ... interesting.
