The Washington Mystics have waived their two 2020 draft picks Jaylyn Agnew and Alecia “Sug” Sutton, according to a Monday press release from the team. The WNBA should have started its season last week but due to the coronavirus pandemic it has been postponed. The league is still exploring scenarios to play this year.
Players who are cut will not get paid but they will be offered health insurance until the end of June, according to ESPN.
In order for players to start getting paid on June 1, the league and the player’s union decided that all teams had to get their rosters to 12 players or 11, for those who don’t have the cap space.
During this year’s free agency, the Mystics traded guard Shatori Walker-Kimbrough and added former league MVP Tina Charles and Leilani Mitchel to the team.
The Mystics current roster has 11 players.
