Las Vegas Aces Sign Three-Time All-Star Guard Danielle Robinson
Las Vegas - Las Vegas Aces General Manager Dan Padover announced today that the Aces signed three-time All-Star guard Danielle Robinson.
"Words can't express how grateful I am to join the Aces organization," said Robinson. "There is an undeniable energy surrounding this group of talented young women. I feel incredibly blessed to have the opportunity to be a part of that and compete for a championship."
"Danielle has always brought a positive energy to the court, and is a real disruptor on both ends of the floor who can change the complexion of a game," said Aces Head Coach and President of Basketball Operations Bill Laimbeer. "She's a great teammate, and another building block who will help our team grow into the championship contender we know it can be."
This is Robinson's second stint with the franchise, as she played her first five years in the league with San Antonio. The 5-9 San Jose, California native made three consecutive All-Star appearances from 2013-15, and posted her best statistical season in 2014, averaging career highs in scoring (12.9 ppg), rebounding (3.5 rpg) and steals (1.7), while handing out 5.3 assists per game.
A 2017 trade sent Robinson to the Phoenix Mercury, and in 2018 the Mercury traded her to Minnesota, where she spent the last two seasons.
For her career, the seven-year pro boasts averages of 9.4 points, 2.8 rebounds, 4.4 assists and 1.2 steals per game.
Robinson is currently playing for CCC Polkoowice in Poland where she is averaging 11.1 points, 3.3 rebounds, 2.7 assists and 1.5 steals.
Last season, Las Vegas advanced to the WNBA semifinals before falling to the eventual league champion Washington Mystics. It was the franchise's first postseason appearance since 2014, as the Aces improved from 8 to 14 to 21 wins over the last two years.
The Las Vegas Aces, led by a trio of All-Stars- Liz Cambage, Kayla McBride, and A'ja Wilson- and WNBA Sixth Women of the Year Dearica Hamby, tip off their third season of WNBA competition at Mandalay Bay Events Center on May 17, 2020.
