Connecticut Sun re-signs Shekinna Stricklen to a multi-year contract
The Connecticut Sun re-signed Shekinna Stricklen to a multi-year contract. She is in her third season with Connecticut and her sixth in the WNBA.
“Because I was unrestricted, I could have looked at other options,” Stricklen said. “But I really love what we are building in Connecticut, and I wanted to continue to be a part of it. We have an incredible fan-base, the support of the Mohegan Tribe and a great group of players. The chemistry I have built with my teammates is amazing. I cannot wait to start the 2018 season.”
Per team policy, terms were not released.
Stricklen started 33 games last season and led the team in three-pointers. She came out of Tennessee as the No. 2 pick in the 2012 WNBA Draft by the Seattle Storm. After three seasons, Connecticut acquired Stricklen from Seattle in early 2015.
“We are excited to have signed Shekinna to a multi-year deal,” Sun general manager and head coach Curt Miller said. “Shekinna is coming off a career year and is one of only four players in the league to make over seventy three-point field goals during the 2017 season. Shekinna not only provides us with one of the premier deep threat options in the league, but is also a fantastic teammate, adding to our overall culture in Connecticut.”
