Security steps in between man, Sky’s Chennedy Carter at team hotel

The Chicago Sky were met by a man with a camera as they arrived Wednesday at their team hotel in Washington, D.C., ahead of their Thursday tilt against the Mystics.

Sky general manager Jeff Pagliocca confirmed to ESPN that the man was trying to approach Chennedy Carter, whose flagrant foul against Indiana Fever rookie guard Caitlin Clark on Saturday has been the subject of widespread debate over the past several days.

Pagliocca said that team security de-escalated the encounter, and police weren’t called.

Several Sky players posted on X about the incident.

“WOW!!! Thank GOD for security,” Isabelle Harrison posted. “My teammate being harassed at our hotel is insane! Couldn’t even step off the bus!!!”

“finding out our teams hotel to pull with a camera as we get off the bus and put it in my teammates face & HARASS her is NASTY WORK,” Angel Reese posted. “this really is outta control and needs to STOP.”

“We have security, and they did a great job of de-escalating the situation/protecting us,” Michaela Onyenwere posted. “It’s still extremely weird & crosses the boundaries meeting us right when we get off the bus.”

“I wasn’t present for the interaction from earlier, but what occurred isn’t acceptable,” Brianna Turner posted. “Didn’t realize that when we said “grow the game” that would be interpreted as harassing players at hotels….Yes we (thankfully) travel with security, but the absurd headlines recently has certainly created an unstable environment for our safety.”
