Tuesday's WNBA trade returns Lindsay Whalen to her native state of Minnesota and Renee Montgomery to the state she played college ball. Call it the "coming home" trade. And call it a smart move for both teams.
Wednesday's trades were as big as the picks. And though there's a lot of unknowns, everyone came out optimistic -- just like most draft days.
Detroit will get a shot in the arm on offense, acquiring guard Katie Smith from Minnesota for two players and a swap of draft choices, both teams confirmed Saturday.
