After being picked 4th overall by Chicago in the 2018 draft, Williams has spent the last three seasons with the Sky. The Chicago forward averaged a career-high 7.7 points per game in the 2020 season.
Williams won’t be joining the Sparks until next season as she has been sidelined for 2021 on French national team duties ahead of the Olympics.
