San Antonio, TX (Sports Network) - The San Antonio Silver Stars have signed
veteran forward Delisha Milton-Jones.
Terms of the deal were not disclosed.
Milton-Jones has career averages of 12.0 points, 5.5 rebounds, 1.9 assists and
1.3 steals over 435 contests. The former University of Florida product and
fourth overall pick in the 1999 WNBA Draft ranks eighth among WNBA all-time
scorers (5,203), seventh in rebounding (2,383) and fifth in steals (584).
"I want to thank the Silver Stars ownership, coach Dan Hughes and his staff
for wanting me to be a part of their team and vision for the future," said
Milton-Jones in a statement Thursday. "I have given basketball so much of my
life and I am grateful to have accomplished many things throughout my career.
As my career enters into its last stages, I feel like I now have a fresh
canvas to display who I truly am as a player and how I would like to be
remembered when I walk away from the game of basketball."
A two-time WNBA All-Star, Milton-Jones has spent the majority of her career
with the Los Angeles Sparks and helped the club win back-to-back titles in
2001 and 2002. She also had a short stint with Washington (2005-07), but
returned to Los Angeles to play for the Sparks for the last five seasons
