During a Saturday night matchup between the Dallas Wings and the Seattle Storm, a familiar face was spotted in the Dallas crowd.

A face that has caused quite the stir in the women’s basketball community in recent weeks, to say the least. Diamond DeShields, formerly known as a Tarheel that turned into a Lady Vol, who went from announcing on Instagram she was returning to Tennessee for her final year of eligibility back in April, only to reverse that decision on June 23rd.

No official statement was made from DeShields, but Saturday night sources received an inside scoop on DeShields’ next move, while she attended the Wings game.

The newly-turned pro solidified her pro statements, saying she was headed to “Turkey in September” to continue her basketball career. She also added, while in conversation with another person that attended the game, that she would “be out here (Dallas) next year.”

This conversation, was held after she asked a current Dallas Wings player, for the phone number of assistant coach Bridget Pettis.

If this holds to be true, and Diamond DeShields is headed to Dallas next season, she would be a huge addition for the already star-studded guard lineup. DeShields would be accompanying the likes of Skylar Diggins-Smith, Kaela Davis, Karima Christmas-Kelly and Allisha Gray, which could be one of the most dangerous lineups in the league.
