Three players have been added to the training-camp roster for the Storm.

Forward Alysha Clark will return after appearing in 23 games last summer. She spent the WNBA offseason playing for Ramat HaSharon in Israel.

Forwards Chay Shegog and Cierra Bravard will also compete for slots in Seattle’s post rotation. The Storm is thin at post because three-time MVP Lauren Jackson (injury) and Ann Wauters (family issues) will not return.

The Storm opens its season May 26 at Los Angeles. The home opener is against Phoenix June 2 at KeyArena.
