Minnesota Lynx re-sign forward Rebekkah Brunson
The Minnesota Lynx re-signed forward Rebekkah Brunson, a 14-year pro who is coming off one of her best seasons where she averaged 10.2 points per game and 6.7 rebounds per contest.
“We are extremely happy that Rebekkah Brunson, one of the cornerstones of our franchise and the only player in league history with five WNBA Championships, will remain a Lynx,” Lynx head coach and general manager Cheryl Reeve said in a statement. “From the moment she arrived in Minnesota, Rebekkah has been a vital part of our franchise both on and off the court. She’s a tireless worker and passionate leader and we are thrilled that she’s decided to continue her career with us.”
Per team policy, terms of the deal were not disclosed.
Brunson, out of Georgetown University, was acquired by the Lynx in the dispersal draft of former Sacramento players on Dec. 14, 2009. She is a four-time All-Star and holds Lynx records as the franchise career leader in rebounds (1,989) and double-doubles (55) while ranking second in blocks (161) and fourth in steals (247).
