Lynx finalize roster, waive Chinese forward Shao Ting
The Minnesota Lynx waived Chinese forward Shao Ting on Friday, trimming their 2017 roster to 11 players.
Ting signed with the Lynx less than a month ago after spending four seasons in the Women’s Chinese Basketball Association, winning back-to-back league titles with Beijing.
The 6-foot forward averaged 12.8 points, 3.4 rebounds and 2.7 assists per game last season.
Minnesota’s roster now stands at 11, and includes eight players from last year’s team: starters Maya Moore, Seimone Augustus, Rebekkah Brunson, Sylvia Fowles and Lindsay Whalen, as well as Natasha Howard, Jia Perkins and Renee Montgomery.
