Chelsea Gray has verbally agreed to terms with the Las Vegas Aces, sources informed Winsidr late last week.
Gray, 28, is a three time All-Star and one of the best point guards in the WNBA. She fills an obvious need for the Aces – a team that struggled immensely at the point guard position in 2020 despite making the WNBA Finals.
Drafted 11th overall by Connecticut in 2014, Gray made her Sun debut in 2015. Prior to the 2016 season, Gray was traded to Los Angeles in a blockbuster deal that netted Connecticut the draft rights to Jonquel Jones. Gray played five successful seasons for the Sparks, culminating in an early playoff exit to Connecticut in 2020. She was named to the All-WNBA Second Team in 2017 and to the All-WNBA First Team in 2019, and has participated in three All-Star Games. Gray won a title with the Los Angeles Sparks in 2016, her second season in the league.
Gray averaged 14 points and 5.3 assists, and 1.5 steals per game in 2020. She has averaged between 14 and 15 points each of the past four seasons.
