The Chicago Sky finished last season in the 5th spot of their division right behind the New York Liberty. They were a few games away from making playoffs. They have about the same roster this season along with Elena Delle Donne who they were lucky enough to get in the 2013 WNBA Draft. Last year they had the 3rd pick and selected Courtney Vandersloot which improved their game so much! Delle Donne is going to help her team out immensely. She is an overall good player regardless of what position she is. She is a great scorer! She score from just about anywhere on the court. She has one of the best free throw percentages of the draft picks this year. With her aggresive offense and ability to make her own plays, she will be a great on and off line scorer.
Swin Cash you lead this team to victory but for some reason she hasn’t. Swin Cash was a great player when she was with the Detroit Shock, she did a great job being apart of the Big 3 for Seattle, but now that she’s with Chicago, she doesn’t seem to be the same game changer. She is one of the best players in the WNBA and has been for a while. She needs to step up and lead this team and if she does that, the Sky will have a successful season.
Sylvia Fowles and Cortney Vandersloot still have their chemistry that will keep helping the team make a playoffs push. Now that Fowles has Delle Donne that may possibly play the Forward spot, she can use her body and stay down low in the post. Fowles is great at grabbing the rebound and outletting the ball, now she has more options for people that can get the call down the floor. The only thing the Sky need after picking up Delle Donne, is a player that can shoot on the outside. Even though they don’t have a huge range shooter, they might do great things with what they have.
