Courtney Williams and Crystal Bradford are under fire following a brawl the two Atlanta players were involved in. In fact, since the video of the fight started circulating, the Dream has stated they won’t be resigning either player who both will become unrestricted free agents this offseason.

Both players were seen on video fighting on Sunday which led to Williams making a statement apologizing for her actions.

Williams posted the video on her Youtube channel. While posting the video, the WNBA guard made light and joked about the altercation she was involved in. Once video surfaced, Bradford was also seen fighting, as was Kalani Brown, a former teammate.

Although Williams has since deleted the video, the Dream did release a statement via ESPN:

“The behavior in the video is unacceptable and does not align with our values as an organization. We are taking this matter very seriously and working with the league to gather more information and determine next steps.”

This past season, Williams averaged a career-high 16.5 points and 6.8 rebounds and was selected as an All-Star. Despite being injured in August, Bradford averaged 8.8 points and 3.8 rebounds per game this year. As for Brown, she was waived in May after playing only one game for Atlanta.

Marcus Crenshaw, who manages both Williams and Bradford, addressed this situation. In his eye-opening interview with Khristina Williams, he stated not only did the fight happen nearly five months ago but also the Dream was made aware of the situation at the time. Back when they were informed of the brawl, no repercussions were issued to either player.
