In the latest WNBA breaking news, league sources tell Winsidr that the Atlanta Dream have signed Tianna Hawkins to a multi-year deal. The exact terms of the contract were not disclosed.

Hawkins was originally selected as the No. 6 pick of the 2013 draft by the Seattle Storm. Before the 2014 season, Hawkins was traded to the Washington Mystics along with Bria Hartley in exchange for Crystal Langhorne and played a steady and consistent backup role during Washington’s 2019 WNBA championship run.

The six-foot-three forward averaged 6.1 points and 3.2 rebounds in 13.8 minutes per game during her seven-year WNBA career. 

Atlanta has remained active in free agency after signing Cheyenne Parker to a multi-year deal earlier this week. The Dream will return an exciting and offensively dynamic backcourt in Chennedy Carter and Courtney Williams this year. Loading up their frontcourt during free agency was a major key headed into free agency. Parker and Hawkins add leadership, depth, and experience heading into the 2021 season.

Tianna Hawkins signed a two-year, unprotected contract with the Atlanta Dream worth $140,000 in 2021, and $144,200 in 2022.
