Lynx re-sign Zandalasini, add forwards Kizer and Miyem
The Minnesota Lynx re-signed forward Cecilia Zandalasini and added free-agent forwards Lynetta Kizer and Endy Miyem, the team announced Wednesday.
Zandalasini originally signed with Minnesota as a rookie free agent Aug. 28 last season. She scored two points and grabbed one rebound in 19 minutes of play in the regular season and also appeared in five playoff games.
Kizer, a six-year veteran in the WNBA, scored 6.0 points per game in 20 contests for the Connecticut Sun last season. She was a part of the Indiana Fever team that lost in five games to Minnesota in the 2015 WNBA Finals.
Miyem has yet to make her WNBA debut, as she’s in her second season with the Italian club Famila Schio. She won a silver medal at the 2012 Olympic games with France and was her country’s leading scorer when it placed fourth in 2016.
Earlier on Wednesday, the Lynx began their roster makeover by swapping forward Natasha Howard for a second-round pick.
