LAS VEGAS (May 18, 2019)—The Aces are ready to win it all
Las Vegas Aces general manager Dan Padover admitted he was a little surprised that Jackie Young elected to declare for the 2019 WNBA Draft after completing her junior campaign at Notre Dame.
Padover and the Aces surprised the rest of the league Thursday morning by officially executing a deal to acquire All-WNBA center Liz Cambage in a deal with the Dallas Wings.
The up-and-coming team already stocked with lottery talent received two more major infusions of talent in Young and Cambage heading into the 2019 season. The Aces finished with a 14-20 record last season, just missing out on the franchise’s first playoff appearance since 2014.
This 2019 season will be very different. Every superstar player was healthy and available for a majority of 2018—a rare occurrence in the WNBA, in part because of national team commitments and injuries that occur while players compete overseas during the offseason.
