Lynx re-sign star Seimone Augustus for long term

MINNEAPOLIS (AP) — The Minnesota Lynx have signed two-time WNBA All-Star Seimone Augustus to a multi-year contract.

The Lynx disclosed the signing Monday without releasing terms. Augustus is currently the WNBA's all-time leader at 21.2 points per game. The 6-foot forward was a restricted free agent, coming off a major injury.

Augustus tore the anterior cruciate ligament in her left knee in a game last June, cutting short her fourth season in the league after only six games.

Augustus played on the U.S. Olympic team in 2008.
