The Chicago Sky have signed Astou Ndour to a one-year deal, sources informed Winsidr’s Rachel Galligan on Monday.
Ndour was waived by the Dallas Wings on February 25th. She cleared waivers on Sunday.
The 26-year-old was drafted 16th overall by the San Antonio Stars in 2014. Ndour played two seasons for the Stars, averaging 6 points and 3.2 rebounds in 2016.
Chicago acquired Ndour in a trade with San Antonio in 2017. Shortly after the deal was made, Ndour was suspended due to injury. She signed with the Sky in 2018, playing in Chicago for two seasons.
In 2019, Ndour enjoyed a breakout season under Chicago head coach and general manager, James Wade. The 6’5” center averaged 6.8 points, 4.2 rebounds, and 17.5 minutes on 49 percent shooting from the field and 42 percent from three – all career highs.
Following her productive 2019 campaign, Ndour was dealt to Dallas in a sign-and-trade. The Sky received a 2021 first-round pick in return.
Ndour was unable to carve out a role for herself in Dallas, averaging 11.6 minutes in just 13 games played.
Now Ndour returns to the city in which she played her best WNBA basketball, joining a stacked roster primed for a deep playoff run.
