Today was filled with even more cuts taking place.

The countdown to final rosters is inching closer and closer (due on Friday) as teams made more cuts today.

Before we get to that though, Indiana didn’t make a cut today, instead, they acquired another player to their roster: Jazmon Gwathmey from San Antonio. In exchange for Gwathmey, the Fever gave the Stars their 2018 third round pick in the draft.

As reported earlier, Minnesota released three players from its roster. The Connecticut Sun had two transactions today as they waived Reshanda Gray and signed Adaora Elonu to a contract. Gray has played in the league for two seasons with stops in Minnesota and Atlanta. In her career, she has averaged 3.7 points per game, 2.3 rebounds per game, 10.1 minutes per game and shot 50.3% from the field.

Jacki Gemelos and Kai James are no longer with New York after being waived. Gemelos has tried out for multiple teams in the league but has only played in part of a season with Chicago back in 2015 where she appeared in 17 games. She averaged 1.1 points per game, 5.0 minutes per game and shot 40% from the field. James was a rookie out of Florida State.

San Antonio cut rookie Briana Day from Syracuse, as well as 11-year veteran Roneeka Hodges. Last year she was not on a team in the WNBA, but prior to that Hodges has been in the league since 2005 when she was with Houston. She also played for Minnesota, San Antonio, Indiana, Tulsa and Atlanta. In her career, Hodges has averages of 18.4 minutes per game, 6.0 points, 1.8 rebounds and 1.1 assists.

The new-look Washington Mystics waived three rookies, Mehryn Kraker (Wisconsin-Green Bay), Ashley Morrissette (Purdue) and Ciara Washington (George Washington), and two-year player Ally Malott. Malott has averaged 2.7 points per game, 1.0 rebounds, 8.4 minutes per game in her two years with the Mystics.
