The Atlanta Dream waived Jackson and brought their roster down to 15 players ahead of the start of the regular season.

The rookie guard played all four years at Tennessee and started 27 games there as a senior.

Robinson was waived by the Indiana Fever after playing 10 minutes in the Fever’s preseason opener. Indiana drafted Robinson is the third round in this year’s draft after the First-Team All-SEC forward finished up her fourth and final year at Georgia. The Fever’s training camp roster now sits at 14 players.
The New York Liberty waived Caldwell after the center signed a training camp contract on April 22. Caldwell played in the Liberty’s first two preseason games, but collected a DNP in the third. The move to cut the former California center brings New York’s training camp roster to 17 players.
The Chicago Sky also made training camp moves by waiving former-third-overall pick Akhator. The Kentucky Wildcat was drafted by the Dallas Wings in 2017 where she appeared in 15 games for the Wings. The Sky now have 16 players on their training camp roster, and still await the return of Astou Ndour and Jamierra Faulkner, who is recovering from injury.
All teams must cut their rosters down to 12 players by May 23, the day before the regular season tips off.
