With all the signings around the league, let’s take a look at how each organization goes about building a roster.
The WNBA mandates an 11-player roster. During the very early WNBA days, 1999, the roster was comprised of: 11 active players, two players on the injured list and one developmental player. The developmental player was a player that could practice with the team but did not dress for games, play or travel with the team. During the 1999 season we had a developmental player in New York, Simone Edwards, a 6’4 post/forward out of Iowa. Simone went on to have a very solid WNBA career. In 2000 she went to Seattle and played six seasons, 178 games and started 48 games. That developmental season was critical in Simone’s growth as a player.
