Allie Quigley will not play during the 2023 season

Allie Quigley will not play in the WNBA during the 2023 season. Though it’s difficult to hear, fans can take some solace in knowing that Quigley is not retiring, per ESPN’s Holly Rowe.

Quigley, 36, won a championship with Chicago in 2021. She is one of the most prolific three-point shooters in league history. 

The DePaul graduate was drafted 22nd overall by Seattle in the second round of the 2008 WNBA draft. Quigley was waived approximately a month after being drafted. She spent four years bouncing around the league, unable to stick on any roster until she signed with the Sky in March of 2013. The fit was so seamless that Quigley never left. 

After averaging under 10.0 minutes per game in her first season with Chicago, Quigley took a leap in 2014, playing 24.8 minutes and scoring 11.2 points on 39.0 percent shooting from three. She has averaged double-digit scoring totals in eight of her last nine seasons and is a career 39.4 percent three-point shooter. She shot at least 42.0 percent from deep for three-straight seasons from 2017-2019, and she then notched her career high in 2021 with a mark north of 45.0 percent. 

Now an established starter, Quigley first started making waves as a sniper off the bench, earning Sixth Player of the Year honors in 2014 and 2015. 

She has won the three-point contest four times, a feat that has never been matched in WNBA or NBA history.
