One week into their first training camp under Bill Laimbeer, the New York Liberty are full of excitement and optimism.
A look at the four first-round series in the WNBA playoffs, which start Thursday:
The New York Liberty acquired center Kara Braxton from Phoenix in exchange for forward Sidney Spencer on Thursday.
Coming off a nine-day layoff, New York struggled with rust and last-place Washington before making enough big plays down the stretch to pull out another win.
The Seattle Storm had such a dominant run to the WNBA championship last year, they are the overwhelming favorites to win again as the league opens its 15th season this weekend.
Just three practices into training camp, New York Liberty coach John Whisenant already likes what he's seen from his new team.
Two months after taking over as coach and general manager of the New York Liberty, John Whisenant is slowly settling into his new job.
Former Sacramento Monarchs coach and general manager John Whisenant was hired Tuesday to fill both roles for the New York Liberty.
"Kara is an All-Star player with championship experience that has been successful in the league for a number of years and will make an immediate impact on the court," Liberty coach and general manager John Whisenant said in a statement.
"We feel this move increases our depth in the post and sets us up for further success as we look to build a championship caliber team."
