Phoenix Mercury Training Camp Roster Released

New, comments

The Mercury are a bit behind on getting their training camp up and running. So far, Ketia Swanier and Candice Dupree are the only expected rotation players that have made it to town as Taurasi, Taylor and friends are still finding their way to the desert from across the pond.

As of Monday, only five total players were in town. They have started working out with Coach Gaines.

This morning, the official training camp roster was released.

Note how the Mercury got around the league's eddict to cut down to only one assistant coach. Bridget Pettis was promoted to "Director of Basketball Operations" while Julie Hairgrove remains on the bench.

Bridget is an integral part of the team's staff, so I would be shocked not to see her on the practice court with her typical hands-on approach.

It remains to be seen if she will be allowed on the bench during games or will travel with the team. If Bridget does not travel it is unclear who DeWanna Bonner would dance with in airport waiting areas.
