With the 2017 offseason underway, free agency in full swing, and trades certain to transpire, there is going to be a plethora of transactions in the coming months.

The 6-foot-5 Delle Donne has made it no secret, that her time in Chicago is up, and that she’s looking for a fresh start. She even stated, that she would be willing to sit out the entire 2017 season in order to force a trade.
