Shekinna Stricklen Signs With Atlanta Dream, Thanks CT Sun For ‘Everything’

This Connecticut Sun have lost a key piece of their 2019 starting five in free agency.

Shekinna Stricklen has signed with the Atlanta Dream for the 2020 season, the team announced Sunday, rejoining former Tennessee Volunteers teammate Glory Johnson.

“What we are getting in Shekinna Stricklen is an incredible shooter with size that can make shots on the move or standstill, and also has a great understanding of how to get herself open shots,” head coach Nicki Collen said in a statement released by the team.

Stricklen was noticeably excited about the opportunity.

“Thank you!!! I’m excited!!” she tweeted Sunday. “See you soon!!”

The Sun thanked Stricklen for her “big-time 3’s” and “world class smile,” to which she responded, “Thank you CT for everything!!! I will for sure miss y’all!! Nothing but Love!!❤️❤️❤️”

Stricklen’s presence certainly will be missed in Connecticut.
