Sun sign Jacki Gemelos and Megan Huff to training camp contracts
While there may not be any basketball being played in college or professionally in the US right now the Connecticut Sun are preparing for when sports return to action.
On March 13 the Sun announced they had signed Jacki Gemelos to a training camp contract on their social media platforms. High Post Hoops can report each would make $57,000 if they make the team.
Gemelos was unable to play in her first two years at the University of Southern California, and played intermittently in two of the next three seasons.
Overall, she sustained five ACL tears in six years.

The Minnesota Lynx drafted Gemelos in the third round of the 2012 WNBA Draft but was released before the regular season started.
She played in 17 games with the Chicago Sky during the 2015 season and was linked to the Las Vegas Aces prior to the start of the 2018 season.
Since graduating from USC Gemelos has played for teams across Europe and with the Greek National team.
The next day the Sun announced they had also signed Megan Huff to a training camp contract.
Huff played for two years at Utah after spending her first two collegiate seasons at the University of Hawai’i. While at Utah she was a two-time first-team All-Pac 12 selection and became a 1,000-point scorer in her two seasons there.
In her two seasons at Utah, Huff averaged 17.2 points, 8.8 rebounds and 1.5 assists per game.
Huff is a versatile player, able to drive, but also an efficient three-point shooter.
She was selected 26th overall in the 2019 WNBA by the New York Liberty on April 10, but was waived six weeks later.
Huff spent the rest of last summer playing on the first independently-owned professional women’s 3×3 team, Force 10. The team is owned by Seattle Storm owner Force 10 Management.
