We're three days into free agency signings, and despite the fact it feels like we got a lot of news on day one, we haven't seen a ton of movement.
Connecticut has 12 players on contract so don't expect a ton of movement from the Sun front. The New York Liberty have been oddly quiet so far for a team who appears to be actively looking to sign guard play. It is safe to say we will undoubtedly see movement from the Liberty soon.
As of February 3, here's where we are at:
They're baaaaaackkk ????????
— Dallas Wings (@DallasWings) February 1, 2019
Atlanta Dream: Don't expect a ton of movement, hypothetically, as the Dream have ten under contract. They did re-sign Blake Dietrick to a training camp contract on February 1, but news broke on February 2.
Chicago Sky: The Sky re-signed All-Star Allie Quigley and Cheyenne Parker on February 1.
Dallas Wings: The Wings announced on February 1 they have resigned Cayla George, Glory Johnson, and Kayla Thornton. It is still unknown at this time what will happen with Liz Cambage and her request to be traded from the Wings. WNBAinsidr reported there are two teams involved at this time, presumably Las Vegas and Los Angeles.
Indiana Fever: The Fever announced the re-signing of a solid core of Natalie Achonwa, Shenise Johnson, and Erica Wheeler to free agent contracts on February 1. Achonwa and Wheeler were important vets on a young Fever team last season, and Johnson missed 2018 recovering from injury.
Las Vegas Aces: The Aces are reportedly highly involved in the Liz Cambage action, but the only official movement so far is the re-signing of Dearica Hamby, which took place February 1 as well.
Los Angeles Sparks: The Sparks re-signed Karlie Samuelson as one of the earliest bits of WNBA news. But the real drama came when they matched the Phoenix Mercury's max offer for Odyssey Sims. Sims will remain with the Sparks unless traded and she cannot be traded to the Mercury. This is one to keep your eye on as they remain involved in the Cambage trade as well and Sims could potentially play a role in that.

Minnesota Lynx: Perhaps the most significant move or actual movement we have seen so far was the Lynx signing Karima Christmas-Kelly. This is a big get for the Lynx who's future appears in flux with the uncertainty of Maya Moore's return. They also announced on February 2 that Seimone Augustus was also re-signed and would return, which is not surprising.
Update: Team signed Damiris Dantas to an offer sheet on Feb. 3. Atlanta has 4 days to match.
Phoenix Mercury: The Mercury signed Odyssey Sims to a max offer sheet that was matched by the Sparks. The potential for a Griner-Sims reunion will not happen. They did re-sign Briann January to a multi-year contract and Yvonne Turner on February 1.
Seattle Storm: Crystal Langhorn and Mercedes Russell were both re-signed to the Storm on February 1.
Washington Mystics: Natasha Cloud signed an offer sheet with the New York Liberty on February 1. As expected, it didn't take long for the Mystics to match. Head Coach Mike Thibault has been vocal on his intent to retain Cloud so Natasha Cloud will remain with the Mystics.
Update: LaToya Sanders resigned on Feb. 4.
