Does retirement loom for a WNBA vet?
She also got hugs from her teammates on the bench and Dream guard Renee Montgomery after the buzzer, before receiving the game ball.
After the game, Charles wrote a long caption on Instagram, which ended with “Enjoy retirement my G!”
After New York secured its 71-63 win over Atlanta, High Post Hoops asked Wright if she was retiring. “Nah, I’m just taking it day by day,” she said. “End of the season, not really making the playoffs, it’s bittersweet. Just enjoying it day by day.”
When asked if the 2019 season finale was Wright’s last WNBA game, Smith said with a laugh, “It may be. For her, it’s getting to that point where she’s gotta make that decision. Lots of love. She got her college team here that she coaches, so lots of vibes sending out to T right now.”
Members of the Charlotte 49ers women’s basketball team (where she is an assistant coach) also attended the game. One of her players shared an Instagram Story with the caption “only way to go out.” Following the Liberty win, Wright’s players joined her in New York’s locker room.
“It was fun,” Wright said. “I was able to have a good time. I’m glad that they were able to be here and in the stands to support me. I really just enjoyed the game, that was it.”
