After playing in just one WNBA game, guard Sydney Carter has been released by the Chicago Sky, team officials announced.
Carter, a 5-foot 6-inch guard, was the Sky's 27th pick of the 2012 Draft from Texas A&M, and she was signed after leading scorer Epiphanny Prince suffered a foot injury. Playing nine minutes at Minnesota on June 23, Carter contributed 4 points and 1 steal.
"Sydney has continued to impress me in her short time with us," said Pokey Chatman, Sky head coach and general manager Pokey Chatman. "She will remain on my shortlist of quality players."
Chicago begins a four-game homestand at 11:30 a.m. today when it hosts the Indiana Fever. Then the team hosts the Phoenix Mercury on June 29, the Atlanta Dream on July 1 and the New York Liberty on July 6.
