In a very productive offseason by General Manager Pokey Chatman, Chicago has re-signed Tamera Young and Shay Murphy, and bolstered the team’s lineup with four former WNBA champions: Swin Cash, Le’Coe Willingham, Ruth Riley and Ticha Penicheiro. They will join the group of talented young players already at the Sky led by 2011 WNBA Defensive player of the Year Sylvia Fowles.
