Ladies and Gentlemen we have our 12. The Washington Mystics announced their final roster for the 2019 season!

It’s really not that much of a surprise who made the cut as majority of our official roster included veterans such as Kristi Toliver, Elena Delle Donne and Natasha Cloud who took them to the WNBA Finals last year.

Washington has some early injuries to rookie and first round pick Kiara Leslie and also Aerial Powers. Belgium native Emma Meesseman will more than likely come off the bench due to in a few weeks leaving for overseas. She’ll be back in time for the second half of the season so no big worries there.

Heres a look at the entire roster General Manager and Head Coach Mike Thibault will be depending on to be victorious:
