Cori Chambers cut

On the same day Asjha Jones debuted in camp, the Sun cut second-year guard Cori Chambers. Chambers had played one minute of one game last year, but looked primed to compete for one of the open guard positions after adding strength over the offseason. But while other players emerged, namely Kerri Gardin, Danielle Page and Jolene Anderson, Chambers struggled to stand out in the team's preseason games, netting a combined 15 points in three exhibitions.

This was a tough decision for the Sun to make, though. At 5-foot-9, 160 pounds, Chambers has a pro body and can hit from the outside (she had a three in every preseason game). This was just a matter of having too many players too few spots.
