The Minnesota Lynx waived forward Bashaara Graves on Tuesday, parting ways with a player they selected just two months ago in the WNBA Draft.

A second-round pick out of Tennesee, Graves appeared in eight games for the Lynx, averaging 0.5 points, 0.4 rebounds and 0.3 assists per game.

Graves finished her college career as just the fifth player in Lady Vols history register at least 1,500 points and 1,000 rebounds, picking up eight double-doubles as a senior.
