Chamique Holdsclaw and the Polish club Wisla Can Pack have decided to mutually terminate the contract Holdsclaw has with the team.
From a translated article:
"At present, Chamique is not capable of training, and thus also to the game. . The decision to terminate the contract was made jointly with koszykarką - Vice President informed the TS Wisla INTERIA.PL, Piotr Dunin-Suligostowski."
Wisla Can Pack is somewhat screwed, because the deadline has passed for Wisla to acquire another player to replace her. From what I can glean, Holdsclaw had a knee operation recently and when she returned to Wisla Can Pack, supposedly she was a shadow of her former self. (Although a Polish message board poster pointed out that her stats were rather good. She's going to return to the USA to undergo treatment.
The article surmises that this throws Holdsclaw's potential return to Atlanta in jeopardy. Everything now depends on how well Holdsclaw's rehabilitation turns out.
One poster on a Polish basketball message board wrote:
"The situation repeats itself ... look what happened, and Chamique has signed for the entire season in Gdynia .... abandonment of the WNBA... Now - a desire to return and the same thing ... super... super ..."
I guess whenever Chamique walks away from a bad situation, people are going to conclude the worst about her. I guess with her past, those will always be the breaks.
