Tina Thompson Welcome to Seattle
The Seattle Storm of the WNBA this week signed Tina Thompson a 15-year WNBA veteran who averaged a career-low 9.9 points last season for Los Angeles.
Thompson is the WNBA's all-time leader in points scored (6,751) and won four WNBA championships with the defunct Houston Comets.
I know I know. This move on the surface sounds crazy...but. Thompson could be part of the focus of Agler's offense until Jackson returns in August from competing in the Olympics.
Agler also signed Wauters, a 6-4 Belgian center, to help forward Camille Little (6-2) in that role.
The Storm has nine players under contract and possession of the No. 2 overall pick in April's draft.
"Our long-term goal is to try to find young talent and we've been pretty consistent about that so that we're ready for the post Sue (Bird) and Lauren (Jackson) days," said Agler, whose team will try to make a WNBA-record ninth consecutive playoff appearance this season.
