On January 21st, WNBA Free Agency will officially begin and players can start talking to teams before officially being able to sign on February 1st.
For the Dallas Wings who are coming off their most successful season in franchise history, this offseason will be a time to find the missing pieces to finally get over the hump to bring home the team’s first-ever championship.
While Dallas will need to address their three-point shooting and back up big position, Wings CEO Greg Bibb already has his mind set on the number one priority of the offseason.
(Resigning Satou Sabally) “is priority number one. She’s a restricted free agent, so I feel good about our process there. (I) Feel good about the conversations we’ve had. I think we and she see herself as a huge part of what we’re building here” Bibb said during his exit interview.
Last season, Satou Sabally, averaged career highs in points (18.6) rebounds (8.1), and assists (4.4) which led to her being named the WNBA’s most-improved player.
After being selected second overall in the 2020 WNBA draft, the Wings saw Sabally as a franchise cornerstone, and last season we began to see her tap into that potential.
Much to the delight of Wings fans across DFW, Sabally who is a restricted free agent will most likely resign with Dallas.
There is no doubt that bringing Satou Sabally back will be an essential part of what hopes to be a Dallas Wings championship run in 2024.
