ATLANTA, GA (January 6, 2022) – The Atlanta Dream announced today the re-signing of guard Jaylyn Agnew after she accepted her qualifying offer. Agnew will join the Dream for training camp prior to the 2022 WNBA Season.
Agnew appeared in 12 games with the Dream in the 2020 season, averaging 5.9 minutes, 1.3 points and 0.4 rebounds per game. She became the first Creighton Bluejay drafted into the WNBA when she was selected 24th overall by the Washington Mystics in the 2020 WNBA Draft.
Agnew played for Sparta&K Vidnoje in the Russian PBL league in the 2020-21 season, where she averaged 7.7 points, 4.8 rebounds and 1.7 assists in eight games before sustaining an injury that kept her sidelined for the 2021 WNBA season.
