Kristen Mann Signed by Washington (Again)

The Mystics have let Josephine Owino go and signed former Atlanta Dream player Kristen Mann. Mann had been signed by the Washington in the pre-season of 2009 but she didn't make the final cut. Mann remained unemployed for a grand total of 12 days.

Wonder what kind of reception Mann gets coming back to the ATL? Maybe she'll get some court time in the Mystics game this Friday.

Owino never played a minute of a regular season game. It just goes to show you...even if a team lets you go, that same team can always change its mind and hire you back.

UPDATE: The mystery is solved. Marissa Coleman is out 4-6 weeks with a high ankle strain. Someone has to fill the gap, and as a result, someone had to leave the roster.

Glad to see Mann workin again. She must have just missed making the team because there are many capable players without a team that Washington could have choosen from. Atl fans are loyal, even when a player is waived/traded. I expect her to at least have a few people cheering in the stands when her name is announced. But of course once the game starts we'll all be pulling for the Dream.
