For Courtney Clements.  Pick swapping also involved but it's nothing significant.

And now you can FIRMLY add the original deal -- Swin Cash for the No. 2 -- on the list of truly awful trades Chicago has made.

TruthBelow, I disagree. Swin filled an important need for a couple of years. She brought veteran leadership & experience to the team. Her value was more that the points or stats in the box score. She helped the team mature. Her production during her time here wasn't bad either.

Her production was bad for the price paid. Obviously no one around the league sees Swin as that valuable if Courtney Clements was the best return Pokey could get.

I also disagree about the value of Swin's leadership and experience. This team won 14 games her first season here, no more than it did the prior season. It was actually a player without any pro experience (EDD) that turned the Sky's fortunes around.

I won't say Swin didn't help the team, but she was a marginal piece.

This was a good trade in my book because it beats getting nothing.

I know it was EDD who was most thankful to Swin for taking her under her wing and showing her how to be a pro.

What the players say how Swin coming to The Sky help the team is what matters.

Cash is gone. Let us not live in the past but focus on younger players that can help make the Sky into a championship team. Goodbye Swin.

After sitting with this for 24hrs. I still am feeling some type of way. I just wish the truth would come out.

8 more days till the season opener... Looking forward to that.

This team played mediocre defense last year and that seemed to be one of her strengths. My family will certainly miss her. But did she have to go to Atlanta? My least favorite team in the league?
