Sky signs draft pick to take Princes place
In need of a point guard due to the injury of Epiphanny Prince, the Chicago Sky has signed Sydney Carter, the team's 27th pick of the 2012 Draft who was waived in training camp.
"Sydney made a positive impact during her time with us and I feel her ability to help us on both ends of the floor, especially at the point position, will serve us well," said Sky head coach and general manager Pokey Chatman. "She plays at a pace and with an aggressive mindset that will complement our system and roster."
Carter, a 5-foot 6-inch guard from Texas A&M, was a three-time co-captain for the Aggies, a member of the 2011-12 Big 12 All-Defensive Team and named to the All-Big 12 Second Team.
The Sky (7-2) travels to Minnesota to take on the Lynx (10-1) in a game at 11:30 a.m. Saturday (ESPN).
Prince, the leading scorer in the WNBA, is expected to miss six to eight weeks while recovering from surgery on her right foot.
