NEW YORK (AP) The New York Liberty acquired All-Star point guard Shoni Schimmel from the Atlanta Dream for a 2017 second-round draft pick.
Schimmel, the eighth pick in the 2014 draft, has made the All-Star team in each of her first two seasons in the WNBA. She's averaged 8.0 points, 3.4 assists and 1.5 3-pointers.
She was the MVP of the 2014 All-Star Game when she scored 29 points. Schimmel provides the Liberty with depth at the guard spot and a proven 3-point shooter.
