Atlanta Dream signs forward Cierra Burdick and guard Sydney Carter
The Atlanta Dream signed forward Cierra Burdick and guard Sydney Carter to contracts. The team added them to the roster following the temporary suspensions of Tiffany Hayes and Aneika Henry, who are competing at the 2015 EuroBasket Championship for Women. Per team policy, terms of the contracts were not disclosed.
The six-foot, two-inch Burdick was selected in the second round (No. 14 overall) out of Tennessee by the Los Angeles Sparks in the 2015 WNBA Draft, but did not make the Sparks’ opening night roster. Carter has played in parts of three WNBA seasons, including 23 games with the Indiana Fever last year. Carter, who was on the Dream’s training camp roster in 2013, has averaged 3.6 points and 1.5 assists in 39 career games, including 15 with Connecticut in 2013 and one with Chicago in 2012. Her career high of 14 points came in a game against the Dream in Philips Arena last May while playing with the Fever.
The Dream is in action again June 19 at home vs. the Chicago Sky.
