Rhyne Howard Earns Second Consecutive WNBA Rookie of the Month Honor

ATLANTA, Ga. (July 5, 2022) – Atlanta Dream rookie guard Rhyne Howard was named the WNBA Kia Rookie of the Month for the second consecutive month, the league announced today.

The accolade marks Howard’s fifth of her debut season, coming just a week after she was named to the 2022 WNBA All-Star team. She became the Dream’s second-ever rookie All-Star in franchise history, and is the only first-time All-Star in this year’s class.

In the month of June, Howard averaged 14.3 points and 2.7 assists, making 5.3 field goals and 2.1 three-pointers per game, all of which ranked first among rookies last month. She is pacing all first-year players in the league this season in points (15.3), three-pointers made (2.4) and steals (1.5) per game, ranking in the top 13 in each category among all players.
