Work promises to be busy today, so I'll provide the barest of information. I woke up at 3 am in New York City, took the plane out of LaGuardia at 6:30, and was back to work at 10:15 am. So obviously, I have a lot of work to catch up with. Blogging is light today.
* As you all know, Katie Mattera was waived by the Dream. Somewhere in Atlanta, Art Eckman is wearing a black armband.
* In exchange for one of our extraneous second-round draft picks, Ashley Shields was traded to the Dream. More on that later.
* Atlanta gets an Angel. Angel McCoughtry, that is, who becomes the very first #1 Draft Pick for the Atlanta Dream in the 2009 WNBA Draft.
* Shalee Lehning out of Kansas State and Jessica Morrow out of Baylor become Atlanta's second and third round draft picks.
