2018 New York Liberty Training Camp Breakdown

We take a look at the New York Liberty training camp roster.

The New York Liberty come into training camp this season with almost double the number of players they will be able to have on the final roster of twelve. They have 23 total players on the training camp roster, but they also have eight players absent at the start of camp with various international club commitments, so a few extra players that probably won't make the team isn't surprising simply by needing the players to fill out practice teams on the floor. The Liberty also come into camp with a lot of questions about how far this team can go in the playoffs, and whether or not they have enough talent around Tina Charles to really compete for a WNBA title. Let's looks at who will make the team and who will not. 

Tina Charles

Charles is the face of the franchise and the leader of the team. She does the work on both ends of the court every day to prove she is an MVP candidate.

Prediction: Makes the final roster. 

Epiphanny Prince

A veteran leader who led the team in assists per game and steals per game last season, Prince will continue to be one of the better guards in the WNBA.

Prediction: Makes the final roster.

Shevonte Zellous

The only player besides Charles to start in all 34 games, Zellous had career highs in both rebounds per game and assist per game last season.

Prediction: Makes the final roster.

Sugar Rodgers

A first-time All-Star and 6th Woman of the Year last season, Rodgers 3 point shooting will continue to spread the floor for the Liberty's offense. 

Prediction: Makes the final roster.

Bria Hartley

Hartley is an important guard for the Liberty but will have to wait and see if she continues to start for the team, or comes more off the bench this year. 

Prediction: Makes the final roster.

Kiah Stokes

One of best rookies of her class, her shot blocking and rebounding will be a welcome part of this team's defense. 

Prediction: Makes the final roster.

Kia Vaughn

Their names and games are similar, but Stokes and Vaughn differ in years played in the WNBA, and Vaughn's experience will continue as an asset for this squad. 

Prediction: Makes the final roster. 

Lindsay Allen

Coming into her second season, she will likely continue to provide good bench minutes, despite her low numbers.

Prediction: Makes the final roster.

Amanda Zahui B. 

The 6'5" Swedish center out of Minnesota may have a tough time sticking around on the team this season.

Prediction: Makes the final roster.

Brittany Boyd

Despite missing most of last year due to an Achilles injury, Boyd is likely to return to the team to continue in a reserve role. 

Prediction: Makes the final roster.

Kia Nurse

The rookie out of UConn is excited to bring her championship experience to the WNBA. 

Prediction: Makes the final roster.

Shoni Schimmel

Former All-Star Game MVP could surprisingly be one of the noted casualties of the 12 player roster limit in the WNBA. 

Prediction: Makes the final roster.

Update: Waived from the roster on May 13th. 

Mercedes Russell

Despite falling to the late second round, Russell's potential may be hard to pass up. 

Prediction: Cut from the final roster. 

Kolby Morgan

Another rookie guard on the camp squad, out of Tulane, Morgan will also have to pass too many players on the depth chart. 

Prediction: Cut from the final roster.

Update: Waived from the roster on May 9th.

Shay Murphy

One of the oldest veterans in training camp, Murphy is another guard that the Liberty will likely have to pass on.

Prediction: Cut from the final roster.

Kelly Faris

There are too many guards on the roster already for Faris, the four year veteran from UConn, to make the team this season.

Prediction: Cut from the final roster.

Leslie Robinson

The rookie forward from Princeton will have a tough time cracking this crowded squad. 

Prediction: Cut from the final roster.

Update: Waived from roster May 9th. 

Cut from the roster May 3:

Roshunda Johnson, Rachel Hollivay, Tashia Brown, and Jillian Alleyne.
