The WNBA was at its best on Sunday with a three-game slate delivering tons of action for basketball fans. The Minnesota Lynx faced off against the Indiana Fever in a matchup of two perennial All-Stars in Candice Dupree and Maya Moore. The Dallas Wings and Los Angeles Sparks went head to head, and Kristi Toliver took over as the Washington Mystics survived the Phoenix Mercury.
Here are a few winners from Sunday’s action in case you missed it:
Lowry’s payday, while substantial, wasn’t as large as he hoped because Toronto wasn’t willing to give him that fifth year and he couldn’t find an offer as lucrative as he wanted elsewhere. The market may get even worse for Thomas next year with only a handful of teams able to dish out money for maximum level salaries as the cap tightens. Even many of those teams are already set at point guard and don’t need to sign Thomas.
By virtue of circumstance, Thomas, despite vastly outperforming his current contract, may not get the full reward he so transparently desires.
The good news for Thomas is the Celtics’ moves to this point suggest they’re willing to commit to him. They traded away a chance to snag elite point guard prospect Markelle Fultz in the draft and were willing to deal Avery Bradley to Detroit to save money for next offseason.
