WNBA star Brittney Griner’s legal woes in Russia and the country’s invasion of Ukraine have the top WNBA players opting to take their talents elsewhere this off-season.

“Honestly my time in Russia has been wonderful, but especially with BG still wrongfully detained there, nobody’s going to go there until she’s home,” said Breanna Stewart, a Griner teammate on the Russian team. “I think that, you know, now, people want to go overseas and if the money is not much different, they want to be in a better place.”
