Suffolk Sports Hall of Famer Bria Hartley was traded from the Phoenix Mercury to the Indiana Fever in a three-team WNBA trade.
The North Babylon native is in her ninth WNBA season after playing the last two years with Phoenix. During the 2020 season, she averaged a career-best 14.6 points per game.
“We are excited to welcome Bria’s veteran presence to Indiana. She has proven to be a key contributor on multiple teams, including last year in helping Phoenix advance to the WNBA Finals,” VP of Basketball Operations and General Manager Tamika Catchings said. “This trade allows us to secure more top-tier talent in this year’s draft, and we also add more assets to control heading into 2023.”
