Tulsa De-Shocked: Hornbuckle trade leaves Tulsa without any players from Detroit
With a trade of Alexis Hornbuckle to the Minnesota Lynx for Rashanda McCants, Nolan Richardsonâ€™s Tulsa squad is completely free of any former Detroit Shock players in action this season. Of the other players who were on the team in the Motor City, Cheryl Ford is out of action this summer due to injury and Deanna Nolan chose not to play this summer.
The release from Tulsa:
A flurry of mid-season lineup changes for the Tulsa Shock continued this morning as they acquired forward Rashanda McCants from Minnesota in exchange for Alexis Hornbuckle.
Hornbuckle, the last remaining player on the Shock roster who played in Detroit last year, averaged 5.8 points and 3.5 rebounds in 21.1 minutes per game for Tulsa. She started 10 of the 14 games in which she appeared.
McCants is a second year player from the University of North Carolina. She has appeared in 17 of Minnesotaâ€™s 21 games this season, averaging 5.6 points and 2.4 rebounds in 15.8 minutes per game.
