Following the Dallas Wings 79-76 preseason win over the Indiana Fever on Friday night, Head Coach Latricia Trammell said, “I wish we had one more.” 

It’s tough for a team to finalize a roster while having played just one preseason game and that game coming less than a week into camp. 

However, Wings GM Greg Bibb is tasked with finding his best 12 players to compete for a team that is expected to be amongst the contenders to bring home the WNBA championship. 

With the Wings season set to tip off next Wednesday, Dallas has announced a few moves as they attempt to trim their roster down. 

The first was a trade that sent last year’s starting point guard Crystal Dangerfield to the Atlanta Dream in exchange for a 2025 third-round pick. In 2023, Dangerfield started 32 of the Wings’ 40 games and averaged 8.2 points and 3.1 assists. 

Returning veteran Veronica Burton and 2023 #5 overall pick Jaycee Sheldon will make up the Wings point guard rotation in 2024 following Dangerfield’s exit. 

One of the Wings free agent signings will not be with the team when they break camp as Dallas announced they have waived forward Emma Cannon.

Cannon signed with the Wings back in February after averaging 5.8 points and 3.1 rebounds with the Fever. Since being waived by Dallas, Cannon has signed with the back-to-back champion Las Vegas Aces, where she spent part of the 2021 season. 

In addition, former Penn State guard Ashley Owusu has also been waived from the Wings 2024 draft class. After being drafted 33rd overall by the Wings, Owusu did not participate in training camp due to an unspecified health issue. 

The Wings will have until May 13th to finalize their 12-person roster before their season opener on May 15th against the Chicago Sky at the College Park Center.
