WNBA general managers favor Lynx, Parker

NEW YORK — WNBA general managers are predicting the Minnesota Lynx to repeat as champions and Los Angeles’ Candace Parker as the top choice to earn the MVP award for a second straight year.

The Lynx, led by Maya Moore, Seimone Augustus and Lindsay Whalen, received 58 percent of the vote in the annual WNBA.com GM survey released Thursday. Minnesota coach Cheryl Reeve was picked by half the general managers as the best coach in the 12-team league.

Parker, the two-time MVP, earned 50 percent of the vote while Moore was second with 33 percent.

Tulsa’s Odyssey Sims edged out No. 1 pick Chiney Ogwumike for Rookie of the Year honors.

The WNBA’s 18th season begins today with five games.
