New York Liberty sign Avery Warley to replace Cheryl Ford

The New York Liberty announced today that they have signed free agent center Avery Warley after releasing veteran forward Cheryl Ford.

As we've noted before around here, Warley was a very strong rebounder in her rookie season with the Phoenix Mercury in 2012 and there's little question that the boards would be her immediate impact, if any at all - while the Liberty are not a poor offensive rebounding team, they're working with a slim differential relative to opponents.

The question though is whether the Liberty have any further moves coming: signing Warley leaves open the possibility of adding a bigger salary player down the line should coach/GM Bill Laimbeer be interested in making a trade, a possibility that some have mentioned after Essence Carson was ruled out for the season due to injury.
