It is now official: one of the best basketball players in the world, Liz Cambage, has returned to the WNBA, and has signed her multi-year contract with the Dallas Wings.

”Liz is a triple-threat player who can shoot, pass and defend inside the paint extremely well,” said Wings head coach Fred Williams. “She will provide a strong inside-out threat that I think will be very exciting for our fans and the league, but she’s also a great addition to the culture we’ve built the last few years in Dallas. I can’t wait to start the 2018 season with the team we’ve put together.”

The Wings President & CEO Greg Bibb had strong praise for the newest member of the team:

“Liz is one of the best players in the world and her return to our organization will greatly improve our basketball team. Her offensive ability will add another dimension to Coach Williams’ fast-paced, high-scoring brand of basketball, while her size and defensive presence will greatly improve our ability to protect the rim and rebound on the defensive end of the court. We are thrilled to have Liz back in the WNBA and wearing a Dallas Wings uniform.”

When Cambage played in the league in parts of 2011 and 2013, she averaged 13.3 points, 6.1 rebounds, and 1.5 blocks per game in 53 games.

On Feb. 26, Dallas will officially introduce Cambage at College Park Center with Bibb and Williams.
