The Storm have some big competitions ahead for their 12 spots.
WNBA training camp is just a few weeks away and teams are still adding the finishing touches to their rosters.
Accordingly, the Seattle Storm have signed Zykera Rice, Presley Hudson and Receé Caldwell.
Rice is the lone forward of the three to sign.
During her freshman year at Gonzaga University she appeared in just 17 games, averaged 6.6 minutes per game, and 3.2 points per game. Fast forward to Rice’s senior year, where she led the team in scoring (15.0 ppg) and blocks (26). An All-West Coast Conference first team selectee for the 2018-19 season, the Storm should be excited about what the future holds for the 6’1 rookie.
Expect a direct competition for a spot between Rice and feisty, skilled second round draft pick Anriel Howard.

Hudson and Caldwell both played point guard in college, but it wouldn’t be surprising, given the presence of both Sue Bird and Jordan Canada, if the Storm attempted to use Caldwell at the two-guard spot.
Hudson may be the most promising add-on out of the late signees.
The 5’6 former Central Michigan University point guard demonstrated consistency and a knack for year-to-year improvements throughout her collegiate career, and does not appear to have reached her ceiling.
If the rookie can land some minutes, the three time All-MAC first team honoree can be a threat from beyond the arc. During her junior campaign she drained 125 triples, a single season record. Hudson would finish her career with 407 made threes, holding both the conference and program record for three-point field goals made.
Much like Hudson, Caldwell is another shooter that the Storm could use.
Caldwell was the first graduate transfer in Cal women’s basketball history. During her graduate year, she shot 40 percent from deep against PAC-12 opponents and had a career-best 24 points against Arizona (2/19).
She could help create for others at the two, while also serving as a scoring option. She finished her collegiate career averaging 10 points per game and 151 assists on the season.
While much of the conversation lately is over who Seattle won’t have, don’t miss the talent influx here of who they will have.
