Breland, Coffey acquired from Atlanta in exchange for Briann January
“We’re excited to add two highly skilled, high character players in Jessica and Nia,” said Mercury General Manager Jim Pitman. We know they will make individual contributions this year, but we are even more excited about what their addition means for our overall roster. Adding Jessica, one of the league’s best rebounders, to our frontcourt, which already includes the league’s best center, Brittney Griner, and All-Rookie Team selection Brianna Turner is big for us. Adding a player like Nia, who can play multiple positions and shot 38 percent from three last year, after already adding Skylar Diggins-Smith and Bria Hartley, made this deal very appealing.”

As I posted in the WNBA Free Agency thread, it was necessary to replace DeWanna's 7+
team leading rebounding average with (Breland's) 7+ average to go with Brittney's 7+.

If only the Suns could follow the lead of their sister team in setting priorities. Apparently
Robert Sarver lets Annie and the Mercury executives do their job while he seeks publicity
through the Suns.

It is one of the reasons that I have been a Mercury fan for many years.
