Indiana Fever re-sign championship nucleus: Tamika Catchings, Briann January, Shavonte Zellous

Indiana Fever President and General Manager Kelly Krauskopf announced the signing of three-time Olympic gold medalist, 2011 WNBA MVP and 2012 WNBA Finals MVP Tamika Catchings to a multi-year contract. Also announced were multi-year deals for guards Briann January and Shavonte Zellous who combined with Catchings to lead Indiana to the 2012 WNBA championship.

“Re-signing our own free agents was a top priority for me this offseason,” said Krauskopf, whose front office leadership has engineered nine playoff appearances in the franchise’s 13 seasons. “I wanted to keep our nucleus of players intact from the championship team.”

“Tamika has been the cornerstone of the franchise,” added Krauskopf. “I would like for her to finish her career – whenever that may be – in a Fever uniform. Re-signing Tamika was obviously a high priority, along with Bri and Shavonte who were so vital to winning the championship last year.”
