F Dearica Hamby, and G Lindsay Allen, are among the eligible players to be re-signed by the team before February 1, 2019.

According to the WNBA: “Teams can begin to negotiate with their own Core and Reserved Players and any Restricted and Unrestricted Free Agents on January 15. As of February 1, teams and players can finalize deals and sign contracts and offer sheets.”

Las Vegas Aces’ President of Basketball Operations and Head Coach Bill Laimbeer will make F, Hamby his number one priority to re-sign her on the first day of WNBA free agency.

If the offer is not matched within the four-day period, the player will be under contract with the offering team.
