AD Durr has been traded to the Atlanta Dream from the New York Liberty in exchange for Megan Walker and the rights to Raquel Carrera, a 2021 draftee who is currently playing in Spain.

The news was first reported by Spencer Nusbaum of The Next Hoops and later confirmed by the Dream.

“We are excited fort the opportunity to add AD to our roster,” Dream coach Tanisha Wright said in a statement. “We understand the obstacles AD has fought through to get back to playing basketball, and we look forward to teaming up with them and continuing that journey. AD’s talent speaks for itself, and we think there is no better place to unlock it than here in their home state.”

Durr is originally from Douglasville, Ga., just outside of Atlanta. The guard is in their second WNBA season after missing the past two seasons with long-haul symptoms of COVID-19. After being cleared to play last November, they have worked their way back on the court.

In their rookie season, Durr averaged 9.7 points per game. In 10 games so far this season, they are averaging 1.4 points in 7.0 minutes per game.
