The Dallas exec weighs in on past and future moves
A day after trading Skylar Diggins-Smith to the Phoenix Mercury for two first round picks in 2020 and a 2021 pick he then flipped to the Chicago Sky for Astou Ndour, Greg Bibb wasn’t looking to relive the past, in response to Diggins-Smith’s comments about the organization.

“I do get a little disappointed in what has become this narrative that Dallas isn’t a place anyone wants to play,” Bibb said on my latest podcast Thursday morning. He pointed to the multi-year deals signed by Isabelle Harrison, Moriah Jefferson and Megan Gustafson just this week as proof that isn’t the case. “Because that’s simply not true.”
But in this new era, the Dallas Wings are hardly finished. Bibb described the Wings as “open for business”, particularly concerning the picks his team controls beyond the second overall selection in the upcoming draft: 5, 7, 9, 15 and 21.
“I would expect to see some additional moves regarding our roster.”
Bibb explained how he sees Arike Ogunbowale and Moriah Jefferson working together in the backcourt, the way his talented frontcourt will come together, and much more in an in-depth conversation about the state of the young Dallas Wings.
(Note: since we recorded, Glory Johnson has signed a deal with the Atlanta Dream.)
