Hope everyone has enjoyed the last week to June. I’m posting top stories early on Saturday because ... tomorrow is the beginning of NBA Free Agency!

The Mystics are now 8-3 in the 2019 regular season, firmly in second place in the WNBA standings. Their most recent win was an 81-74 victory over the Chicago Sky on Wednesday.

Elena Delle Donne also won the WNBA’s Eastern Conference Player of the Week Award.

Emma Meesseman and Kim Mestdagh are playing for Belgium in the Women’s EuroBasket, where their team is 1-1 in group play after a win over Russia last Friday and a loss to Belarus on Friday.

Belgium plays Serbia on Sunday ... in Serbia!

And Gilbert Arenas will make his BIG3 Debut on Saturday in Charlotte

Arenas’ Enemies lost in their debut against Bivouac but he was inactive. Now he will make his appearance against DeShawn Stevenson and the Ball Hogs.

Arenas and Stevenson have never had serious beef against each other, but this “friendly?” three point contest will always remain a major moment of Wizards fans’ lore:

NBA Free Agency starts tomorrow and we will be sure to hit the news when it strikes. Enjoy the rest of your weekends everyone.
