Skylar Diggins-Smith Rumors

Pandora is launching UNINTERRUPTED Radio, a brand new and exclusive station that features music selected by top NBA and WNBA players. With UNINTERRUPTED, listeners get access to the very soundtracks that top athletes listen to on and off the court, including those curated and used by LeBron James, Kyle Kuzma, Trae Young, A’ja Wilson, Draymond Green, Lonzo Ball, Skylar Diggins-Smith, Tobias Harris, Angel McCoughtry and others.
What we didn’t know was that Diggins-Smith and Cuban met for about 90 minutes at the Mavericks’ offices, at Cuban’s invitation, shortly after her salary-gap comments. Neither Diggins-Smith, nor Cuban, publicized the meeting. We only know about it now because Cuban mentioned it in conversation before the Mavericks’ home opener Saturday, when he was asked whether he has any advice for the WNBA in the wake of Borders’ departure.
“I met with Skylar Diggins and this is exactly what I told her,” Cuban said. “I said, ‘You’ve got to go out there and create new properties. You’re not going to all of a sudden double WNBA interest so that you can get a huge TV contract to save the day. But what you can do, because the WNBA is so much bigger, dramatically bigger, outside the U.S. than it is in the U.S., there’s players that won’t play here because they make more money overseas.
