A signature move of this past WNBA offseason was when the Los Angeles Sparks made a splash by signing Cappie Pondexter, adding another veteran presence to a team that is, arguably, the most talented in the W.

Which is why it came to a surprise to many fans when she was unceremoniously released from the Sparks a few days ago.

Surely, another team would be in need of Pondexter’s services – and low and behold, the Indiana Fever came calling at just the right time.

To be fair, Pondexter was not getting much playing time for the Sparks, limiting her ability to be an asset to the team. Heading to a Fever team that is in full rebuilding mode gives her the chance to mold young talent such as Kelsey Mitchell and Victoria Vivians into potential future role players – or even stars – at the WNBA level.
