2007 WNBA Player Movement Central

The WNBA free agent period is officially underway. Additional players who may not have been on rosters last season may also qualify as free agents and will be added to the list if and when they sign with a team. Trades, new free agent signings and player retirements will also play a part in shaping rosters in 2007. Note that teams can also "core" players, which takes those players off of the free agency list and gives the team that they last played for exclusive negotiating rights to those players.
