The Lynx acquired two players via two separate trades on Tuesday, and in the process waived two players. One of those is former Gopher and Bloomington native Kenisha Bell.

Bell averaged 1.0 point per game after appearing in two preseason games with the Lynx. She was originally selected 30th overall by Minnesota in this year's WNBA Draft.


One of the players acquired is forward Stephanie Talbot from the Phoenix Mercury in exchange for a second-round pick in the 2020 WNBA Draft. 

The other is center Alaina Coates from the Chicago Sky. The Lynx sent Chicago their third-round pick in the 2020 WNBA Draft. Coates played 11 minutes/game last year as a rookie for the Sky, averaging 3.4 points/game.
