Offseason 2009-10: Overseas Roster

As you can see by the map below, WNBA players are scattered around the world during the offseason. Between Asia, Australia, the EuroCup and the EuroLeague, players from all 12 teams are competing in over a dozen countries around the world. Of course, this map and list below are subject to change and not all players will be spending the entire winter abroad. Some will come back as others are just leaving, so stay tuned. (player listing current as of March 31, 2010).
Click each of the map markers iconsbelow to see which players are playing in each country. You can zoom in and out of the map as well as drag the map to the left and right to see the rest of the world. While we have centered the map in Europe, as it has most of the players, be sure to look for players in Asia and Australia as well.
