A multitude of re-signings had most players sticking with their current WNBA teams as the free agency signing period entered its first full week, but some key transactions led to new dynamics for certain teams that will at least give speculators some material to salivate over before the 2014 season begins in May.
The biggest mover was Katie Douglas, an unrestricted free agent, leaving the Indiana Fever to rejoin her first team, the Connecticut Sun (formerly the Orlando Miracle). Douglas spent the last five seasons with Indiana and the popular thought suggested she would finish her career in the state she was raised in.
A less surprising move was found in Atlanta, where Erika de Souza re-signed with the Dream. Atlanta used the core designation on the native of Brazil, barring any other team from acquiring her, but her presence in the post will allow for some continuity as the team transitions from Fred Williams to Michael Cooper as head coach.
Most of the teams involved in swaps so far have experienced recent changes in the head coaching department, a trend likely to continue as lineups are tweaked prior to the WNBA Draft on April 14.
