Sun acquire G Moriah Jefferson from Mercury

The Connecticut Sun acquired Moriah Jefferson from the Phoenix Mercury on Saturday in exchange for fellow guard Rebecca Allen in a sign-and-trade deal.

Jefferson’s contract extends through the next two seasons, per the Sun.

Jefferson, 29, averaged 10.5 points, 3.6 assists, 2.0 rebounds and 1.1 steals in 39 games (36 starts) last season with Phoenix. The former UConn product has contributed 9.4 points, 3.6 assists and 2.1 rebounds in 179 career games (143 starts) with the San Antonio Silver Stars/Las Vegas Aces, Dallas Wings, Minnesota Lynx and Mercury.

“We are excited to add Moriah to our team,” Sun head coach Stephanie White said in a release. “She gives us an experienced guard that can impact the game on both ends with her speed, quickness and playmaking ability.”

Allen, 31, averaged 6.4 points and 2.8 rebounds in 40 games (27 starts) last season with Connecticut. The Australian contributed 5.8 points and 2.6 boards in 198 career games (67 starts) with the New York Liberty and Sun.

“Becca is a multidimensional player, who can impact the game on both ends of the floor with her elite shooting, versatility and length,” Mercury general manager Nick U’Ren said. “The veteran leadership and high basketball IQ that she brings will be invaluable to our team.”
