Minnesota Lynx Release and Sign Multiple Players to Hardship Exemption Contracts

The Minnesota Lynx have been making tons of roster moves over the past few days as they work to get under the hardship exemption for the 2021-22 season. After signing her as a free agent over the summer, the organization announced that they had agreed to a contract buyout with veteran forward Angel McCoughtry alongside waiving Odyssey Sims.

In addition, the Lynx released forwards Rennia Davis, Nina Milic and guard Yvonne Turner from their hardship contracts yesterday.

Just this afternoon, the Lynx announced a few more signings under hardship contracts, picking up Evina Westbrook and Moriah Jefferson while re-signing Milic, Turner and Hannah Sjerven to hardship contracts.

The aftermath leaves the Lynx with eight active players for their Saturday evening contest against the Chicago Sky (1-1).
