Whitmore waived by Sun

Veteran forward Tamika Whitmore, the centerpiece in the 2008 trade which sent Katie Douglas to Indiana, was waived by the WNBA's Connecticut Sun on Thursday.

The odds of Whitmore, who averaged 9.2 points and 3.6 rebounds in 58 games with the Sun, making the 2010 Connecticut roster were not promising with DeMya Walker claimed in a dispersal draft and the trade which brought former Nebraska All-American Kelsey Griffin to Connecticut.

“We thought this was the best course for both Tamika and the Connecticut Sun,” Vice President and General Manager Chris Sienko said in a statement. “Doing this now gives Tamika the best opportunity to find a spot on another team."
