On Wednesday, the Washington Mystics announced that they signed Jacki Gemelos to a seven-day contract. Gemelos averaged 1.8 points per game in six appearances for the Connecticut Sun this season before she was waived on Aug. 17. In a coincidence, Gemelos was waived by Connecticut so they could sign Essence Carson, who was waived by Washington last week.

Washington also announced that they re-signed Stella Johnson, effective Tuesday and waived Shey Peddy, who averaged 3.6 points per game this season and signed with the Phoenix Mercury earlier today. Johnson initially joined the team on a medical hardship.

It seems that the last several days featured player movement where some players were waived, but remained in the bubble because they were signed by another team very quickly.
