Mercury Acquire 2021 Third Round Draft Pick from Atlanta
PHOENIX - The three-time WNBA Champion Phoenix Mercury today acquired a third round pick (27th overall) from the Atlanta Dream in this year's 2021 WNBA Draft in exchange for guard Yvonne Turner.
"We have loved Vonnie as a player and a person but we were not going to have room for her on our roster under the salary cap this season," said Mercury General Manager Jim Pitman. "This trade allows us to add an asset and provides Vonnie the chance she deserves to make a WNBA roster in 2021. We wish her well."
