Kalana Greene cut by Connecticut Sun

Well, the Connecticut Sun fixed the logjam of perimeter players in a major way as former UConn wing Kalana Greene was cut by the team today.

Greene started 95 of the team's 102 regular-season games over the last three seasons after being acquired on a draft-day trade in 2011. But with the return of former Sun star Katie Douglas, drafting of Alyssa Thomas and return of Danielle McCray after she was forced to sit out the 2013 season, Greene got caught up in a numbers game. Unless the Sun pick up a player off waivers, this should finalize the perimeter players who made the team. Following Saturday's practice Sun coach Anne Donovan said she planned to keep seven perimeter players and with Douglas, Thomas and McCray joined by Allison Hightower, Alex Bentley, Renee Montgomery and Kelly Faris the Sun appear set there. There is still one more cut that needs to be made before the team gets down to the 12-player roster limit. Yelena Leuchanka, Kayla Pedersen and Kelley Cain appear to be fighting it out for the final two post positions before Kelsey Griffin, Chiney Ogwumike and Kelsey Bone

Greene averaged 4.9 points and 2.7 rebounds in 134 career regular-season games, with 101 coming with the Sun.
