Gabby Williams has been signed by the Los Angeles Sparks, with the team announcing her addition to the 2022 roster on Tuesday.
Williams originally was acquired by the Sparks in a trade with the Chicago Sky in May. She was picked fourth overall by Chicago in the 2018 draft and spent three seasons in Chicago, averaging 7.7 points per game in the 2020 season.
Prior to the trade, Williams was placed on the full-season suspended list due to her international commitments. A member of the French national team, Williams competed in the FIBA Women’s EuroBasket and the Olympics, causing her national team commitments to last a majority of the WNBA season.
In addition to Williams joining the 2022 team, the Sparks will also welcome back 2021 No. 7 overall pick Jasmine Walker. Walker missed nearly her entire rookie season with a torn ACL.
