Kia Vaughn and Bria Hartley are being traded to NY, Carolyn Swords is going to Seattle and Washington gets Seattle's #6 pick

The Mystics and Storm also swap second round picks as part of the deal.

I like this trade a lot. The Storms main need was a big center who could play solid minutes and help Stewart so that she doesnt need to defend the centers all the time. Swords will help us right away while the 6th pick wouldnt be a sure wnba rotation player in this weak draft..

There are those who say this could mean Langhorne is shown the door.  But isn't she cored?  Why would the front office do that if they planned on getting rid of her down the line?

My guess is that Thomas will be gone.

I think Thomas will be gone. A postrotation of Stewart, Langhorne and Swords will be fine. They probably start with Langhorne and Stewart and have Swords off the bench to sub for Langhorne so that Stewart can get more minutes at the PF spot on both ends of the floor.
