The WNBA Connecticut Sun announced today that guard Danielle McCray (Kansas) has been signed to a three-year contract with a team option for a fourth season. As per team policy, no terms were released.
McCray is a 2008 graduate of PGC having attended Think The Game.
“Had she been healthy, we think Danielle would have been a top three pick in the draft last year,” coach Mike Thibault said. “It is like having a first round pick this year be a lottery pick. She is having a great year in Israel and we are looking forward to having her here in May.”
Selected by the Sun with the seventh overall pick in the 2010 WNBA Draft, McCray missed the entire 2010 season after tearing the anterior cruciate ligament in her left knee during her senior season at Kansas. With the Jayhawks, McCray scored 1,934 career points and was a preseason Big 12 Player of the Year candidate prior to her injury.
The 5-foot-11 guard is currently playing overseas for Hapoel Rishon Le-Zion in Israel. She is averaging 18 points, 7.7 rebounds and 2.9 assists in 18 games for the Israeli club.
The Connecticut Sun will open its ninth season at Mohegan Sun Arena on Saturday, June 4th by hosting the Washington Mystics at 7 p.m.
