The Atlanta Dream have signed Blake Dietrick to a training camp contract. Dietrick joins Adaora Elonu, who signed a training camp contract with the club in February, on Atlanta’s training camp roster.

Dietrick starred collegiately at Princeton. She averaged 15.1 points, 4.9 assists and 4.5 rebounds as a senior and led the program to its first ever victory in the NCAA Tournament.

Dream head coach Nicki Collen cited the 5’10 guard’s versatility and three-point shooting in a team release:

"I am excited to see what Blake can bring to our training camp. She is a versatile guard who can play all three guard positions as well as defend all three positions, which is a luxury to have in the WNBA. Blake is a tireless worker who has continued to improve her game through overseas competition. She is the definition of tough and will do all the little things to make a team better.  She is a tremendous 3-point shooter with a high basketball IQ."

Dietrick is currently playing overseas for AO Dafni Agioy Dimitrioy in Greece.
