Former UConn forward Natalie Butler waived by Dallas

The Dallas Wings announced that former UConn forward Natalie Butler and guard Loryn Goodwin have been cut.

Goodwin was the 18th overall selection while Butler was taken with pick No. 30 in the 2018 WNBA Draft.

Butler, who was the leading rebounder among Division I women's players this past season at George Mason, had four points and seven rebounds in two preseason games - both played at Mohegan Sun Arena.

The feeling was that Goodwin could challenge former UConn guard Saniya Chong for the backup point guard role but she was 2 for 6 from the field with six turnovers in two preseason games.

There are still 18 former UConn products on WNBA rosters as we are just over a week away from the start of the season.

Atlanta: Tiffany Hayes, Renee Montgomery
Chicago: Stefanie Dolson, Gabby Williams
Connecticut: Morgan Tuck
Dallas: Saniya Chong, Azura' Stevens
Las Vegas: Moriah Jefferson
Minnesota: Maya Moore
New York: Tina Charles, Kelly Faris, Bria Hartley, Kia Nurse, Kiah Stokes
Phoenix: Diana Taurasi
Seattle: Sue Bird, Kaleena Mosqueda-Lewis, Breanna Stewart
