2/10/20 LOS ANGELES, CA - The Los Angeles Sparks just added another offensive weapon to their roster with the return and signing free-agent All-Star Guard Kristi Toliver, who just won the 2019 WNBA Championship with the Washington Mystics last season.


Toliver had played for Los Angeles from 2010-2016 and help led the Sparks to their 3rd WNBA Championship in 2016. She has played in her first All-Star Game in 2013, and in 2018, and 2019.


She is one of the WNBA's best shooters and has shown a history of hitting big shots during big games. In her eleven years in the WNBA, she has averaged 12.4 ppg, and 3 assists, and shot 38.7% from three-point range.


With the signing of Toliver to go along with Chelsea Gray and Riquna Williams in the backcourt, it will make it hard for teams on defense trying to double-up on their perimeter shooters.


The Sparks will continue to add to their roster through trades and free agency, and perhaps they can get a few players that can help with one of their biggest weaknesses over the last several seasons, rebounding. #WNBA, #LASparks, #NBA, #WashingtonMystics, #KristiToliver, #WashingtonWizards,#TGSportstv1,
