Angel Reese's welcome to the WNBA includes questionable calls and fines

Chicago Sky rookie Angel Reese arrived in the WNBA eight games ago, and since then she has had one welcome-to-the-league moment after another.

Reese and fellow rookie Caitlin Clark - who have been closely associated since their days competing against each other in college - have been under the microscope in the first few weeks of their pro careers.

The Sky's game Tuesday offered no relief from the attention for Reese, who was ejected in the fourth quarter of Chicago's loss to the New York Liberty when referee Charles Watson called her for a foul on Jonquel Jones. Reese argued slightly, then waved toward him - a sequence that drew a quick double technical and sent her to the locker room. According to the WNBA pool report, she "disrespectfully" addressed him and then waved off the referee "in resentment to the call."
