Lynx Add Fowles for Stretch Run in WNBA Title Race
MINNEAPOLIS (AP) — Minnesota's window for another WNBA championship is still open.
That's why they worked so hard to acquire Sylvia Fowles. That's why she wanted to play for the Lynx.
The Lynx were more than willing to part with two players and a first-round draft pick for the 29-year-old Fowles, a two-time Olympian with career averages in the league of 15.7 points, 9.8 rebounds and 2 blocks per game. The three-team trade was finalized Monday, seven months after Fowles first expressed interest in playing for Minnesota. She sat out the first half of the season, forcing the Chicago Sky to try to make a deal.
Fowles was introduced at a news conference at Lynx headquarters on Tuesday. She'll make her debut with the team on Wednesday against the Los Angeles Sparks.
