The LA Sparks have acquired the rights to and signed Sandrine Gruda from the Connecticut Sun for two draft picks: the 11th pick in this years draft and a second round pick for next years draft.
At first I wondered why would they want to give up their 11th pick but then I did a little reading on Gruda. She has already built a chemistry with Candace Parker as they have “played alongside one another overseas for the past five years.” Parker believes that chemistry will translate to the WNBA.
More size and help with the boards can only help the Sparks as it is exactly what they need to get past Phoenix and 6-8 Brittney Griner.
We shall see, everyone will have to get through the Lynx though.
