Wilson is finding her groove offensively, and submitted last week her best two individual performances of the season — a 28-point outburst against the Washington Mystics and a 20-point game against the Dallas Wings — to garner Western Conference Player of the Week honors.
Aces reserve forward Dearica Hamby scored a career-high 27 points in an 86-68 victory over the Dallas Wings on Saturday night at Mandalay Bay Events Center.
The Aces acquired the 6-foot-8-inch All-Star from the Dallas Wings on May 16 for forward Isabelle Harrison, guard Moriah Jefferson and a first-round draft pick in 2020.
Zion Williamson will make his NBA Summer League debut with the New Orleans Pelicans on July 5 in Las Vegas.
A’ja Wilson scored a season-high 28 points Thursday night, but the Aces struggled defensively and fell 95-72 to the Washington Mystics at Mandalay Bay Events Center.
There was no shortage of fashion statements at the NBA draft, and no one made a bigger statement than 7-foot-2-inch Bol Bol, who appeared ready to go trick or treating.
P.J. Washington, who played at Findlay Prep, was selected by Charlotte with the 12th pick of Thursday’s NBA draft. Another ex-Pilot, Bol Bol, went No. 44 to Denver.
To almost no one’s surprise, the New Orleans Pelicans selected Duke’s Zion Williamson with the No.1 pick in the 2019 NBA Draft.
In addition to the fourth pick, the Hawks are getting the No. 57 pick, a future second-round pick and forward Solomon Hill from New Orleans.
The Aces are the league’s best defensive team after seven games, allowing 89.4 points per 100 possessions amid the fastest offensive pace, 102.2 possessions per game.
