Las Vegas Aces Re-Sign Guard Kelsey Plum
Las Vegas - Las Vegas Aces General Manager Dan Padover announced today that the team has re-signed fourth-year guard Kelsey Plum.
"Kelsey has been an integral part of the Aces transformation into a playoff contender over the past two seasons, and we're excited that she will continue to be an integral part of our future," said Head Coach and President of Basketball Operations Bill Laimbeer. "She is as competitive as they come, and will do all the right things day-in and day-out to help the Aces compete for a championship."
"Over the past two years, Las Vegas has become home for me, and I'm excited about what we are building here together," said Plum. "I'm signing back to chase a championship, and as testimony to my belief in this team, our staff, MGM and the WNBA."
The San Antonio Stars made Plum the number one overall pick in the 2017 WNBA Draft, and the former Washington standout rewarded them with an All-Rookie Team performance, averaging 8.5 points, 3.4 assists and 1.9 rebounds per game while making 36.5 percent of her three-pointers.
Since the franchise moved to Las Vegas prior to the 2018 season, Plum is averaging 9.0 points, 3.5 assists and 2.6 rebounds per game, while knocking down 39.5 percent of her shots from long distance.
In the 2019 WNBA Playoffs, Plum led the Aces to the semifinals averaging 15.2 points, 7.8 assists and 4.8 rebounds while connecting on 52.9 percent from beyond the arc.
