Dream sign 2-time WNBA champion Renee Montgomery
ATLANTA (AP) — Renee Montgomery, who won two WNBA championships with the Minnesota Lynx, has signed a multiyear contract with the Atlanta Dream.
Montgomery, a nine-year WNBA veteran, was a part-time starter for Minnesota’s championship team last season. Montgomery, an Atlanta resident, says she was excited to be closer to her family and friends.
New Dream coach Nicki Collen says she “immediately targeted” signing Montgomery.
Montgomery averaged 8.0 points and 3.4 assists for Minnesota last season.
Collen says Montgomery’s “championship pedigree” will add important leadership to the team.
Atlanta guard Bria Holmes recently announced she will miss the 2018 season due to her pregnancy. Angel McCoughtry, the four-time All-Star who sat out the 2017 WNBA season to rest due to her EuroLeague obligations, has not announced her plans for 2018.
