The Phoenix Mercury has signed Brianna Turner to a multi-year contract extension, the WNBA team announced Saturday. Contract details were not specified in the team’s announcement.

Turner, who joined the Mercury in 2019, was named to the All-WNBA Defensive Team in 2020 and 2021. The 6’3” forward averaged 7.8 points, 9.4 rebounds and 1.3 blocks per game last season, helping Phoenix to a WNBA Finals run.

“As I’ve said many times, we want high character, high effort players on our team, and Brianna Turner exemplifies that,” said Mercury General Manager Jim Pitman in a statement. “We also want players who want to be here in the Valley, as members of our Mercury and Suns organization, and in our community, and Breezy exemplifies that as well. Getting this extension done speaks to how highly we value her now and how much we believe in her potential moving forward.”
