The New York Liberty re-signed restricted free agent guard Sugar Rodgers and reserve forward Rebecca Allen. Per team policy, the terms of the agreements were not disclosed.

The Liberty also announced that 2016 3rd Round draft pick guard Shacobia Barbee and free agent forward Cierra Burdick have signed training camp contracts.

“We are thrilled to have Sugar sign back up with the Liberty,” said New York Liberty head coach Bill Laimbeer. “She has proven to be a quality teammate, and a leader in our franchise’s community efforts. The amount of extra work Sugar has put in towards improving her game cannot be overstated, and led directly to her breakout season last year. She is an example for all players about what can be achieved when they are dedicated to their craft.”

Last season Rodgers averaged 14.5 points, 3.7 rebounds, 2.4 assists and 1.0 steals per game, and broke the Liberty single-season record with 86 3-pointers. Allen returns for her 3rd season in New York.

“I’m looking forward to finally having Allen with us for a whole season,” said Laimbeer. “Last year, she came in and showed flashes of what she is capable of, and has demonstrated the ability to be a consistent contributor in this league.”
