WNBA: Sparks sign free agent Courtney Paris
The Sparks signed 6-foot-4 center Courtney Paris and re-signed forward Chanel Mokango.
The seventh overall pick in the 2009 draft by Sacramento, Paris averaged 4.8 points and 4.1 rebounds in 33 games with the Monarchs. She was waived by Chicago during the 2010 preseason and is currently playing in Spain.
“Among our off-season goals is to get bigger and stronger in the paint, and Courtney certainly brings those attributes to the Sparks,” Sparks General Manager Penny Toler said in a news release.
Mokango averaged 0.4 points and 0.6 rebounds in 21 games last season with the Sparks.
