“Courtney brings a presence inside that we have been eager to add to the roster. Her ability to rebound the basketball is a great strength,” Storm president and general manager Alisha Valavanis said in a statement. “We are thrilled to welcome her to Seattle.”

Paris has led the WNBA in rebounding twice, in 2014 and 2015.

“I want to thank everyone at the Dallas Wings and Tulsa Shock for the last six seasons,” said Paris. “One of my favorite things about basketball is the people it has brought into my life, and I am so grateful for all the teammates, coaches, support staff and fans I crossed paths with in those uniforms. With that being said, I am excited for this new opportunity. I’ve always had a great respect for the Seattle Storm franchise and it has always been one of my favorite WNBA cities. I believe in the vision Dan Hughes has for the team and with the combination of talent and experience, it will be an exciting summer full of potential. I can’t wait to be part of it.”
