Welcome to the latest edition of the WNBL Rumour Mill, the one-stop for all the latest news and reports on the movements of our WNBL stars this off-season.
SEABL import on WNBL radar
Hobart Lady Chargers star import Lindsay Laur could be destined for a call-up to the WNBL if her coach Dan Krebs has any say in it.
The American has been a revelation in Hobart, prompting Krebs to declare Laur as “WNBL material” in a story from the Hobart Mercury.
Regarded as a SEABL MVP candidate, Laur has averaged 18.7 points (per game) and 11.7 rebounds in the first 12 games of the season.

Wilson extends Bendigo Spirit stay
Bendigo Spirit guard has extended her stay with the club to a fifth season, signing on for the 2012/13 WNBL season.
Coming off her poorest statistical season with the Spirit, where she was down in minutes, points and field goal percentage, Wilson is expected to take on a greater role following the departure of veteran guard Deanna Smith and back-to-back club MVP Tess Madgen.

WNBL Grand Final MVP MacLeod back on board for Rangers
The reigning WNBL Premier Dandenong Rangers have received a further boost with Grand Final MVP Kath MacLeod re-signing for the title defence.
Coming off an amazing season which saw the talented point guard drive the Rangers to WNBL Championship glory and receive her second WNBL All Star Five accolade, MacLeod joins Jenna O’Hea, Tegan Cunningham and Stephanie Cumming in the green and white next season.

Capitals retain Jayco Opals star
The Canberra Capitals have added another key piece to their bid to return to WNBL finals action, with Carly Wilson back on board for the upcoming WNBL season.
Regarded by Caps Coach Carrie Graf as one of their best performers last season, the retention of Wilson adds to a squad that looks certain to be fighting it out for a top five position, led by the return of Lauren Jackson.
Wilson was recent cut from the Jayco Opals squad destined for London.
