The Los Angeles Sparks took a major step in their hopes of reclaiming the WNBA’s top prize this September with the announcement that they had signed Cappie Pondexter from the Chicago Sky.
In her years with the league, she has certainly built a Hall of Fame resume – including becoming the fourth all-time leading scorer in WNBA history, being named one of the league’s 20@20 greatest players of all time, and a seven-time All-Star.
She has the ability to play both guard positions. She is a fierce competitor with championship pedigree.
–Los Angeles Sparks general manager Penny Toler (press release)
To be born in the state of California and then to finish my basketball career here, I’m more than thrilled.
I’ve always joked with Coach [Brian] Agler that I’d end up playing for him and words can’t describe how happy I am to actually have the opportunity.
–Cappie Pondexter (per press release)
Pondexter averaged just under 10 points per game last year with the Sky, but has averaged 17.1 points per game for her career.
The Sparks have been one of the frontier teams since the inception of the WNBA and I’m blessed to leave my mark in its history books.
