Let’s start by positing that Tina Charles, either by virtue of a continued coring rule or a more obvious desire to keep playing in her hometown at a fancy arena, won’t be going anywhere. That’ll mean New York, including Charles, will have four spots already occupied on the roster by 4/5s: Han Xu, Amanda Zahui B. and Kia Stokes are all also signed for next season, though critically, Stokes has a non-guaranteed deal. Whether Reshanda Gray, who impressed all season in 2019, also returns to push her in camp remains to be seen. But that limits how much the Liberty can build at the wing/guard positions, with Rebecca Allen and Brittany Boyd signed, though a rookie-scale deal for whoever they grab with the top pick in the 2020 draft — who knows, could be anyone, right? — will ease cap concerns. Asia Durr and Kia Nurse still on rookie deals helps, too. And GM Jonathan Kolb said he expects Marine Johannes to return. All of which leads to the question: is this largely the 2020 roster, adding Ionescu and a new coach, and hoping for better?
