Angel McCoughtry and the Minnesota Lynx accepted a buy-out on Thursday simply a couple of months after signing the five-time All-Star as a totally free representative in February.
McCoughtry, 35, has actually played simply 20 minutes through the group’s 0-3 start.
“Although the organization has been very patient with my injury and helping me heal my body, sometimes it’s about what fits best for both parties. I believe in myself, and I know I will be all the way back to perform at the highest level.” McCoughtry stated in a declaration the Lynx launched.
McCoughtry went through surgical treatment for a torn ACL and meniscus tear she suffered last season. McCoughtry holds the WNBA Finals record for points in a video game (38) and championship game (42). She was the very first general choice by Atlanta in 2009, where she played 10 seasons, winning 2 back-to-back scoring titles, was called to 6 All-WNBA groups, and made 8 All-Defensive choices. McCoughtry won 2 Olympic gold medals with Team U.S.A..
She is 15th all-time in scoring and 8th in points per video game at 18.6.
