Leilani, now Opals AND Boomers


MELBOURNE Boomers may have run second in the 2017-18 WNBL season and are losing dual-Olympic centre Liz Cambage, but they are first in line for the services of Rio Games playmaking Opals star Leilani Mitchell.

The dynamic playmaker already has enjoyed WNBL stops at Dandenong Rangers, Adelaide Lightning and won a championship (and the Rachael Sporn Medal) in her second stint with Sydney Uni Flames.

A starter on the ill-fated Olympic team in Rio, she is No.1 on the free agent list for the Boomers, who have lost Brittany Smart to Sydney and released free agent Bec Cole.

If the Boomers are successful in securing Mitchell, they not only would be adding three Rio Olympians but three Phoenix Mercury teammates in the WNBA, multiple WNBL championship-winner Cayla George also soon to be based in Melbourne, along with Steph Talbot.

So Melbourne potentially will look like this - Mitchell, George, Talbot, Monique Conti, Chelsea D'Angelo, Maddie Garrick, Ash Grant, Kalani Purcell, Jenna O'Hea.

SA country pair George and Talbot, who has been playing in Poland, will join O'Hea in the Opals' Commonwealth Games team for its 12-year-old Gold Medal defence.

Meanwhile, in Canberra the Capitals have confirmed Australia's naturalised superstar and FIBA Asia Cup MVP and All Star, Kelsey Griffin, has made the switch from Bendigo Spirit.

And today Bendigo Spirit confirmed they had secured World Uni Games Gold Medallist, Abbey Wehrung, from the Canberra Capitals.

But of course, if you are a regular reader here, you knew that already:
