The Connecticut Sun of the WNBA acquired former Cal guard Layshia Clarendon from the Atlanta Dream along with a second-round draft pick in 2019 for guard Alex Bentley on Monday.
Clarendon came to Atlanta in 2016 and is averaging 4.3 points this season. She was drafted ninth by Indiana in 2013. Clarendon set the franchise record for assists last season when she had 226 — tied for third most in league history — and made the All-Star team.
“We are excited about obtaining Layshia,” Connecticut coach and general manager Curt Miller said. “She’s a talented and savvy guard with a great reputation as a leader on and off the court. She was thrilled when we spoke, and can’t wait to arrive in Connecticut.
