and goings in 2011


Sue Bird, © womensbasketball-in-france.com  Clubs have until 26 January to register players for EuroLeague Women.

Sue Bird (in picture), Candace Parker and Nicole Powell's arrivals after the Christmas break were known before the current season started.

While Bird rejoins Sparta&K Moscow Region Vidnoje, Lauren Jackson has returned to Australia due to injury.

Jackson hurt her achilles but hopes to return before the end of the season.

At UMMC Ekaterinburg it was a straight swap, Parker in, Crystal Langhorne out.

At Wisla Can-Pack Powell was always coming but the departure of Janell Burse was not planned.
