The Connecticut Sun have shaken up their roster this offseason, but Brionna Jones is staying put in Uncasville for the upcoming campaign.
The Sun announced Monday they’ve re-signed Jones to a one-year contract. Terms of the deal were not disclosed, per team policy.
Jones, the reigning WNBA Sixth Player of the Year, is coming off a 2022 season in which she averaged 13.8 points, 5.1 rebounds, 1.2 assists and 1.2 steals per game. She earned her second WNBA All-Star selection, further solidifying her status as a franchise stalwart.
“We are so excited to have Breezy back,” Sun head coach Stephanie White said, according to a press release. “She’s a proven winner that has worked tirelessly to become one of the best players in our league. She impacts our team on the floor and in the locker room, she is a tremendous ambassador for our community. I can’t wait to work with her this summer.”
Jones, 27, was the eighth overall pick in 2017. She has spent her entire six-year career with Connecticut, serving as a stabilizing force in the team’s frontcourt.
Jones currently is playing overseas with USK Prague, alongside Sun forward Alyssa Thomas, and figures to remain a key part of Connecticut’s quest to return to the WNBA Finals in 2023.
