Washington, D.C. – Washington Mystics General Manager and Head Coach Mike Thibault announced today that the team has acquired forward Erica McCall in a trade with the Minnesota Lynx. Washington will send their third round pick of the 2022 draft to the Lynx.
“Erica will be a valuable addition to our post rotation. She is someone who is just starting to reach her professional potential,” said Thibault. “We were impressed by her continued improvement last summer with Minnesota and feel like she will take another step forward with us this season.”
