The two-time Olympic gold medalist made her exciting announcement on social media.
Breanna Stewart is signing with the New York Liberty. The free agent forward who won two WNBA titles with the Seattle Storm made her announcement on social media today.
Several days ago, it was reported that Stewart had narrowed down her free agency destination to either Seattle or New York. Her agent, Lindsay Kagawa Colas, told ESPN that Stewart’s free agency represents “the story of the WNBA at an inflection point.”
Stewart, a four-time NCAA champion with UConn, was selected by the Storm as the No. 1 pick in the 2016 WNBA draft. That year, she was named the league’s Rookie of the Year. Stewart went on to win two WNBA championships with the Storm in ’18 and ’20.
