Mystics Relinquish Rui Machida’s Rights


The Washington Mystics have relinquished the rights to Rui Machida by mutual agreement, it was announced today by General Manager Mike Thibault.

“We really enjoyed having Rui as part of our organization last season,” said Thibault. “However, with the new changes in our roster, there isn’t the same opportunity here for her this coming season. This will give her the chance to see if there is a better fit for her elsewhere. We wish her the best of luck.”

Machida appeared in 36 games (two starts) for the Mystics last season, averaging 2.6 assists in 12.9 minutes per game.
