After Jonquel Jones, Kevin Durant also wants Breanna Stewart in the New York Liberty to build a super team in the WNBA at the Barclays Center (hopefully with better luck, at least today, than the Brooklyn Nets).
Stewart would narrow his pick to just the Liberty and the Seattle Storm, his former team where he won two titles and a career WNBA MVP award. The impression is that mentioning the Storm is dutiful and nothing more out of respect for its only WNBA team to date, for Stewie.
The Liberty has already gotten to former MVP and Connecticut star Sun Jonquel Jones, and they’re ambitious. In fact, the defending champions Las Vegas Aces have to answer who have secured Candace Parker, who has announced that she will move to Nevada for the 2023 season. Jones is a start, but to play against coach Becky Hammon’s battleship with A ‘ja Wilson, kelsey Plum, Chelsea Gray, Jackie Young and now Parker too, more is needed.
Even Kevin Durant knows it, always attentive to the moves of the New York Liberty since he plays in Brooklyn.
KD replied on social networks, Twitter and Instagram, to a post by Liberty, “monday motivation” with a photo of Sabrina Ionescu, with an eloquent comment: “Where’s Stewie???”, where’s Breanna Stewart?.
The arrival of Breanna Stewart in New York would create a real super team at the Liberty, with Jones and Ionescu and coach Sandy Brondello, already winner of WNBA titles at the Phoenix Mercury. The liberty are also chasing Courtney Vandersloot, the Chicago Sky All-Star, who could arrive in case Stewart decides to stay in Seattle.
In recent days, Stewart received in Istanbul where she is playing with Fenerbahce, Washington Mystics emissaries and Minnesota Lynx, which however would have been discarded in the last few hours.
