The free agency negotiation period began on January 15, and signings may be announced beginning February 1.

THE ROOK

We can't call her "The Rook" much longer, but reigning Rookie of the Year A'ja Wilson is working for the SEC Network this offseason. She will also be in Las Vegas off and on throughout the offseason, beginning with her attendance at this weekend's Pacquiao vs. Broner fight.

COMMUNITY

We launched the Aces Lace Up Mentorship Program earlier this month, and nearly all of the 36 Clark County School District high school basketball programs have shown interest in participating so far. The three winning programs will be selected the first week of February to coincide with National Girls & Women In Sports Day on February 6.
