that would be extremely helpful. We'll miss Bri and her special talents for sure, but having Shepard's mix of in-paint talents, shooting and passing, along with Kat, would be a good pairing.
(And even better one will be when Shepard and good friend Bri take the court in 2018.)
If Shepard is not granted a waiver, this will be a small-ball attack, although I have some optimism that Mik Vaughn will come along well as the season progresses as a rebounder and post defensive presence.
Given the O N-O news, I would suspect that searches are already staring in earnest for 2019 bigs....
