After a year with the Washington Mystics, center Nicky Anosike will be reunited with former Tennessee teammate Candace Parker.
Anosike was traded by the Mystics to the Los Angeles Sparks, where Parker plays forward, for guard Natasha Lacy and forward LaToya Pringle Sanders.
“It still hasn’t hit me yet — I’m so excited to be a part of the LA Sparks! I know the expectations for me are really high and I’m ready to meet that challenge,” Anosike said in a Sparks release. “I haven’t won a championship since playing with Candace at Tennessee, and I know we’re both focused on being champions again and having fun while doing it.”
Anosike averaged 9.6 points and 7.1 rebounds last season for Washington.
Anosike’s Great Wall team of Beijing won the Women’s Chinese Basketball Association title Tuesday. She averaged a team-high 15.3 points and 9.1 rebounds per game.
