There is a new report that the number of training camp spots for 2009 will total 15. This leads to the question of who will actually be named to the 2009 Atlanta Dream training camp roster.
Here is our best estimate:
A: Players Who Played Last Year
C Mattera (married name of Katie Feenstra)
C Snow (free agent signing)
F/C de Souza
F Lyttle (acquired from dispersal draft)
G/F Castro Marques
B: Players Who Didn't Play Last Year, But Whom We Expect To Play
C: Players Who Might Or Might Not Be Signed, Or Show Up
?? #1 Draft Pick
?? Other Draft Pick
This implies that out of the four draft picks from 2009, only two of them will get an invitation to training camp. It's possible that the lower round picks could be "burned" on foreign players to secure their rights.
Out of these 15 players, four will be sent home as the WNBA maximum roster size for 2009 is 11 players.
