San Antonio, TX – The San Antonio Silver Stars have signed veteran forward Delisha Milton-Jones.
Terms of the deal were not disclosed.
Milton-Jones has career averages of 12.0 points, 5.5 rebounds, 1.9 assists and 1.3 steals over 435 contests. The former University of Florida product and fourth overall pick in the 1999 WNBA Draft ranks eighth among WNBA all-time scorers (5,203), seventh in rebounding (2,383) and fifth in steals (584).
"I want to thank the Silver Stars ownership, coach Dan Hughes and his staff for wanting me to be a part of their team and vision for the future," said Milton-Jones in a statement Thursday. "I have given basketball so much of my life and I am grateful to have accomplished many things throughout my career. As my career enters into its last stages, I feel like I now have a fresh canvas to display who I truly am as a player and how I would like to be remembered when I walk away from the game of basketball."
A two-time WNBA All-Star, Milton-Jones has spent the majority of her career with the Los Angeles Sparks and helped the club win back-to-back titles in 2001 and 2002. She also had a short stint with Washington (2005-07), but returned to Los Angeles to play for the Sparks for the last five seasons (2008-12).
