Atlanta Dream working to trade Chamique Holdsclaw
Tuesday evening Atlanta Dream season ticket holders received the following message from Chief Operating Officer Toby Wyman via email:
As we continue to build this franchise on and off the floor, we are at times faced with making tough decisions. We are currently challenged with one of the most difficult decisions this organization has encountered. Unfortunately, Chamique Holdsclaw recently expressed a desire to be traded. Chamique was an integral part of our success last year and we had every intention of keeping her and having her continue to play a key role with the Dream. We are actively pursuing a resolution to grant her request and we appreciate all that Chamique has done to help our young franchise.
Holdsclaw, a former University of Tennessee star, came out of retirement to join the Dream last year. She has not participated in training camp this year.
Last season, she averaged 13.9 points and 4.4 rebounds per game for Atlanta. In 2007, she announced her retirement after playing only five games in the season for the Los Angeles Sparks. It was her third season with the team. Previously, she played six seasons for the Washington Mystics.
