Dallas Wings reportedly get Astou Ndour, re-sign Isabelle Harrison

Wings strengthen their frontcourt

The Chicago Sky traded Astou Ndour to the Dallas Wings in a sign-and-trade earlier today, as first reported by Rachel Galligan of Winsdr.

The 25-year-old restricted free agent originally signed a three-year offer sheet with the Atlanta Dream which Chicago matched before trading her to Dallas for a pick.

The Spanish-Senegalese center maintained a close relationship with Sky general manager and coach James Wade, and she has credited him for her introduction into the league in 2014.

Last season, Ndour stepped up in the absence of injured starting power forward Jantel Lavender and averaged 10.7 points and 7.1 rebounds in 11 regular season starts. In the playoffs, she averaged 16.5 points and a team-high 8.5 rebounds.

Earlier today, the Wings announced the re-signing of forward Isabelle Harrison to a three-year deal and will earn $150,000 in her first year.

Last season, she missed the first three games after being traded to Dallas but came back and averaged 8.6 points per game, led the team with 5.8 rebounds per game and was subsequently named 2019 AP Comeback Player of the Year.

The 26-year-old is currently playing for Virtus Segafredo in Italy where she is averaging 19.4 points and 11.1 rebounds per game.
