Per multiple reports and confirmed by the team today, veteran All-Star Swin Cash has been waived by the New York Liberty. Cash came to the Liberty in a trade for DeLisha Milton-Jones from the Atlanta Dream back in July of 2014.

Cash entered the league in the 2002 WNBA Draft as the second overall selection to the Detroit Shock. From there she was then traded to the Seattle Storm in 2008 where she played four seasons.

Following her time with the Storm, Cash found herself being traded to the Chicago Sky in 2012. Once again she was traded after two seasons to the Atlanta Dream before finally going to New York.

Last season she averaged 4.5 points, 2.4 rebounds and 1.4 assists per game for the Liberty starting in 28 of the 34 games she played in. On her career, she averaged 11.1 points, 5.4 rebounds, 2.4 assists, and 28.7 minutes per game.

Cash is a player in the WNBA who is very decorated. Under her belt, she has three WNBA Championships in 2003 (Detroit Shock), 2006 (Detroit Shock), and 2010 (Seattle Storm). While WNBA titles are great to have, she had the honor of not only playing for the USA in the Olympics. However, she was a part of the teams that brought home the gold medals in 2004 in Athens and 2012 in London.

She is a four-time All-Star (2003, 2005, 2009, 2011), winning the All-Star game MVP in 2009 and 2011. Her accolades also include, All-WNBA Second Team in 2003 and 2004 and WNBA All-Defensive Second Team (2011).

In her 14 seasons in the league she ranks seventh in WNBA history in career free throws (1,356), eighth in games started (409), seventh in minutes (12,849), 10th in rebounds (2,416), 7th in games played (448), 14th in scoring (4,955), 15th in assists (1,090), 18th in field goals (1,712) and 21st in blocks (244).

Being a day away from the final cut-off of final rosters, Cash still has an opportunity to be picked up by one of the other teams in the league.
