Former Texas A&M standout will join the Dream for Training Camp
ATLANTA – The Atlanta Dream have signed forward Adaora Elonu to a training camp contract, the team announced Tuesday.
“I am excited to see what Adaora can do in our camp,” head coach Nicki Collen said. “She is a versatile forward that is comfortable on the perimeter or in the post. I believe her greatest strength is her ability to defend multiple positions.”
Elonu, who currently plays for CB Avenida in the Spanish League, was a four-year letterwinner for Texas A&M and a member of the 2010-11 National Championship team. In Spain, Elonu is averaging 10.3 points and 3.2 rebounds for the first-place squad. She has played even better against EuroLeague competition, leading her team with 12.0 points and 4.4 rebounds.
“I coached against her in the NCAA tournament and have followed her professional career closely ever since,” Collen added. “She is ready to compete for spot in this league.”
Since going undrafted in 2012, the 6’1” Elonu has also played professionally for Galil Eliol (Israel), Beroil-Ciudad de Burgos (Spain) and CB Conquero (Spain). Last season, she participated in training camp with the Connecticut Sun.
