The Los Angeles Sparks announced a contract "divorce" from star Liz Cambage earlier today.

The announcement comes after Khristina Williams of Girl Talk Sports TV reported this morning that Cambage had "quit" the Sparks and made "verbal comments about her intentions to leave the Sparks to multiple people within the organization."

Cambage has had a tumultuous few months, dating back to alarming allegations she made racist comments to members of the Nigerian women's basketball team during a scrimmage before last year's Olympics.

Now, she's a woman without a home in the W and a hot topic of discussions among fans.

Cambage averaged 13.0 points, 6.4 rebounds, and 1.6 blocks in 25 games for the Sparks this season. 

The 6-foot-8 Australian native is a two-time WNBA champion and four-time All-Star still capable of playing at a high level.

However, it will be interesting to see whether or not teams shy away from adding her due to her recent baggage.
