Chicago Sky sign Ameryst Alston

UNCASVILLE, CONNECTICUT- May 2: Ameryst Alston /

The Chicago Sky have signed Ameryst Alston to a training camp contract.

Alston was selected 24th overall by the New York Liberty out of Ohio State in the second round of the 2016 WNBA Draft. The 5’9 guard scored over 2,000 points in her career at Ohio State, where she was a three-time All-Big 12 selection.

Alston appeared in three games in her two short stints with the Liberty in the 2016 and 2017 seasons.

Chicago figures to be a tough roster to crack as a training camp invitee. The Sky have 12 players currently under contract for 2018 and hold two first round draft picks.
