Dream claim Jones; waive Massengale, Johnson

New, 4 comments

The Atlanta Dream have picked up Jordan Jones after she was released by the Chicago Sky.

The Atlanta Dream have added Jordan Jones, the team announced today. Jones comes to Atlanta after being waived by the Chicago Sky. She was the No. 34 overall pick in the 2016 WNBA Draft by the Sky.

Jones is a point guard out of Texas A&M. While there, she was a two-time SEC Defensive Player of the Year and is the Aggies' program single-season assist record holder with 261 during the 2013-2014 season. She is the third all-time in the program's career assist leader (707) and seventh in steals (224).

From 2013-2016 Jones led the SEC in total assist each of those seasons and was a 2015 AP All-American.

While picking up Jones, the Dream have waived Niya Johnson, their 2016 draft pick (no. 28 overall) and Ariel Massengale who was drafted in 2015 (no. 29 overall).

This pick up of Jones could be very beneficial on their roster, as the Dream traded their All-Star point guard Shoni Shimmel a few days ago to the New York Liberty.
