Diana Taurasi signs a multi-year contract extension with the Phoenix Mercury
Diana Taurasi signed a multi-year contract extension with the Phoenix Mercury, the team announced today.
“As long as Diana Taurasi wants to play in the WNBA, we want her in a Mercury uniform,” said Mercury general manager Jim Pitman. “As we’ve said before, she is the heart of our franchise, the first face on our Mount Rushmore, the best winner and competitor in the women’s game. The trajectory of our organization changed the day we drafted her 13 years ago, and we are excited she will be here into the future.”
Taurasi is a three-time WNBA Champion, a four-time Olympic gold medalist and a six-time EuroLeague champion while overseas. She is one of just five players in Olympic basketball history (mens or womens) to win four gold medals. She led the Mercury to the three best regular seasons in franchise history, including a WNBA-record 29-win season in 2014.
