Two-time WNBA MVP and three-time league champion Candace Parker is returning to the Las Vegas Aces on a one-year contract, Winsidr reported on Wednesday.
Parker, 37, is an unrestricted free agent after playing last season with the Aces. She averaged 9.0 points, 5.4 rebounds and 3.7 assists in 18 games (all starts) with eventual champion Las Vegas before a fractured foot and the resulting surgery ended her season prematurely.
The seven-time All-Star spent her first 13 seasons with the Los Angeles Sparks (2008-20) and the next two with the Chicago Sky (2021-22).
Parker has contributed 16.0 points, 8.5 rebounds and 4.0 assists in 410 career games (406 starts). She was part of the Sparks’ title team in 2016 and led her hometown Sky to the 2021 championship.
Parker ranks ninth on the WNBA’s all-time scoring list with 6,574 points and third in rebounds with 3,467. She was named WNBA Finals MVP in 2016.
Parker was a college star and two-time NCAA champion at Tennessee and was selected No. 1 in the 2008 WNBA Draft by the Sparks. She also is a two-time Olympic gold medalist (2008, 2012).
