On Sunday, Jan. 21, WNBA teams can begin negotiating with 2024 free agents. Teams then can start signing players on Thursday, Feb. 1.

To help you construct your offseason dreams for your favorite team, below is a list of players who are unrestricted, restricted and reserved free agents. Players are organized under the WNBA team that retains their rights, with the player’s free agency status and 2023 WNBA salary in parentheses. Players whose rights are not retained by a team are grouped under “Other unrestricted free agents.” Stay tuned for team-focused free agency previews for all 12 WNBA teams.

First, here’s a quick primer on the various free agent statuses:

  • Unrestricted free agents (UFA) have at least five years of WNBA experience and are free to negotiate and sign with any team, unless they are cored by their current team. A core designation prevents a UFA from negotiating with other teams, but requires the current team to tender a one-year guaranteed supermax qualifying offer; the UFA and team then can negotiate the terms of the contract.
  • Restricted free agents (RFA) have four years of WNBA experience and are free to negotiate and sign an offer sheet with any team. However, a RFA’s current team can match any offer sheet to retain the RFA. If a team does not issue a RFA a qualifying offer from Jan. 11-20, the RFA becomes a UFA.
  • Reserved players (RP) have three or less years of WNBA experience. A RP only can negotiate and sign with their current team. If a team does not issue a RP a qualifying offer from Jan. 11-20, the RP becomes a UFA. A player with a “Suspended-Contract Expired” designation is similar to a RP. If a player’s contract expires while they are not an active member of their current team, the player only can negotiate and sign with their current team. In contrast to a RP, a player with an expired contract is not issued a qualifying offer.
