The Connecticut Sun waived free agent guard Dawn Evans Tuesday leaving the WNBA team one above the 11-player limit.. The team must be down to 11 players by Thursday at 2 p.m.
Evans was signed to a training camp contract on March 16. The former James Madison star averaged 8.7 minutes for the Sun in three preseason games. Against New York on May 7, the 5-foot-7 guard had five assists and one steal. She had one rebound and one steal against Minnesota on May 10 and three points, one rebound and one assist at Washington Monday.
The last roster cut may likely be second-round draft pick Chay Shegog of North Carolina. The center has played well in camp, but Tina Charles will return soon from a sore groin that has kept her out of all three preseason games.
The Sun open the season Saturday at Madison Square Garden against the New York Liberty. The game was originally scheduled for the Prudential Center in Newark, N.J., but moved because of Game 3 of the NHL playoff series between the Rangers and Devils.
