The reported turmoil within the Connecticut Sun locker room has resulted in the front office taking action as the Sun completed a trade that sent Alex Bentley to the Atlanta Dream in exchange for Layshia Clarendon.
After a hot start to the season, the Sun have since come back down to earth having dropped seven of their last 10 games. The trade also includes a 2019 second-round pick also heading to Connecticut.
The trade could have as much to do with the Sun’s struggles as it may have to do with someone else who is on the team’s roster with roughly two weeks to go before the trade deadline.
WNBAinsidr reported that Bentley got into a physical altercation with Courtney Williams, who has not played since late June.
