STORM: Storm Signs Kobryn
Kobryn joined the Storm on the East Coast, where the team opens a three-game road swing with a game against the Connecticut Sun, July 1. It continues with games at Washington, July 3, and at Indiana, July 5. Seattle’s next home game is July 9 vs. Los Angeles.
Storm coach Brian Agler discussed what Kobryn might add to the team in a previous interview with StormBasketball.com.
STORM: Kobryn Expected to Add Post Depth
"She's a typical European post player," he said, "though she's probably more defense- and rebound-oriented than some of them. She's versatile. She can stretch the defense and shoot the three-point shot. She has great instincts for the game. I've watched her play. Some of our team members have played against her. We've watched film on her. We have a good grasp of what she can bring us."
