Dream re-sign guard Jasmine Thomas
ATLANTA — The Atlanta Dream re-signed guard Jasmine Thomas, the team announced on Friday. Details about the multi-year contract were not disclosed.
Thomas played for two seasons with Washington before joining the Dream in 2013. In her two seasons with Atlanta, Thomas has played in every one of the 68 regular season games, and started 52. She’s also started 10 of Atlanta’s 11 playoff games.
On top of her lengthy streak with the Dream, in four professional seasons in the WNBA Thomas has never missed a game.
Last season Thomas averaged 4.8 points per game and added 2.1 rebounds and 1.6 assists per contest. She shot 32.3 percent from the floor and 25.5 percent on three-point attempts. She posted five games in double digits, including a season-high 17 points May 25 against Indiana.
"We are excited to bring another key element of our core nucleus back as Jasmine will continue to play a large role in our endeavor to bring a WNBA Championship to Atlanta in 2015 and beyond," said Dream President and General Manager Angela Taylor. "Coming off a productive season in Turkey, she will continue to provide strong leadership, defensive intensity, and offensive versatility to this veteran team."
Thomas is pouring in 12.1 points, 3.7 rebounds and 2.7 assists per game in Turkey as she prepares for her fifth WNBA season.
