Los Angeles, CA (Sports Network) - The Los Angeles Sparks have signed free
agent guard Lindsey Harding to a multi-year contract.
Financial terms of the deal were not disclosed.
Harding spent the past two seasons with Atlanta and also played two years in
Minnesota and two in Washington. She owns career averages of 11.2 points, 4.2
assists and 3.3 rebounds in 180 games.
"I want to thank the owners, coaches, players, and most of all the wonderful
Atlanta Dream fans for all of their support while making my time in Atlanta
memorable," said Harding in a statement. "Now I'm looking forward to playing
for the Los Angeles Sparks and their enthusiastic fans, another organization
dedicated to excellence and winning."
Harding averaged 12.3 points and team-high 4.5 assists in 34 games for the
Dream last season.
"We're thrilled about the addition of Lindsey Harding," said Sparks coach
Carol Ross. "It's another bold and positive step for the Sparks. Lindsey is a
talented, dynamic point guard built for speed and aggression. She will add to
an already exciting guard tandem of Kristi Toliver and Alana Beard."
Harding was selected by Phoenix with the first overall pick of the 2007 WNBA
Draft and was traded to Minnesota. She was a member of the 2007 All-Rookie
Team and was a 2010 WNBA All-Star.
