Spencer released by Connecticut Sun

The Connecticut Sun released veteran forward Sidney Spencer on Wednesday meaning that unless the Sun picks up somebody off waivers that second-round pick Chay Shegog has made the team.

Spencer was signed by the Sun in the offseason to add some size and shooting ability at the forward position but obviously Shegog, a former North Carolina star, was impressive enough during the preseason to make her the only rookie on the 2012  Sun team. Shegog also provides some insurance in case Tina Charles' groin injury, which has reduced her to primarily being a spectator, limits the All-Star center.

Teams have until Friday to get down to the 11-player maximum. The Sun's 11-play squad consists of Charles, Asjha Jones, Kalana Greene, Renee Montgomery, Danielle McCray, Allison Hightower, Mistie Mims, Kara Lawson, Kelsey Griffin, Tan White and Shegog.
