Liberty simply leveled up.

“We’re witnessing a drastic shift in the way in which our league views free company,” one WNBA GM instructed me.

Breanna Stewart might have selected her subsequent staff, however the impression of her FA sweepstakes will seemingly transcend simply becoming a member of the Liberty. ⬇️

The Liberty completed lifeless final within the league final yr with 47.9% of their factors coming the way in which of 2-pointers. Stewie (10.7 2PA, 51.8%) and Jones (7 2PA, 58.2%) assist SO a lot. Simply touchdown two of the highest 17 eFG% gamers within the league is unimaginable. Time to carry on Sloot! #WNBA

The Liberty figured to leap ahead already because of the addition of Jones, a four-time All-Star and the 2021 MVP. She’s the go-to scorer New York wanted to pair with Ionescu, who cemented her standing as a franchise cornerstone in 2022.

Now, the staff has one other one of many league’s greatest gamers. Stewart averaged 21.8 factors and seven.6 rebounds per sport whereas capturing 37.9 % from past the arc in 2022 because the Seattle Storm reached the WNBA semifinals.

The Nets are an apparent instance that constructing a superteam in New York would not assure a title, not to mention a number of titles. However the Liberty have turn out to be the largest menace to dethrone the reigning champion Las Vegas Aces in 2023.
