Dymond Simon
The Phoenix Mercury has signed Dymond Simon (5'5''-G, college: Arizona St.), Brittney Thomas (5'11''-PG-89, college: Michigan St.), Zane Tamane (6'7''-C-83, agency: LBM Management, college: W.Illinois) and Chastity Reed (6'1''-F-89, college: UALR) to training camp contracts, the club announced today. Phoenix's training camp opens on Sunday, April 29 and features a preseason game against the Japanese National Team on Tuesday, May 8. Tipoff is slated for 7 p.m. at US Airways Center.

Simon, a 5-5 point guard from Arizona State University, who played high school basketball at Phoenix-St. Mary's, averaged 13.2 points per game as a senior, earning her All-Pac 10 honors in 2011 for the second time of her career, and finished seventh on the Sun Devils' all-time scoring list with 1,216 points. Following graduation, Simon signed with the West Coast Waves of the Australian Women's National Basketball League.

Thomas, a 5-11 point guard, graduated from Michigan State in 2011 and is one of five Spartans ever to be a four-time All-Big Ten selection, earning Honorable Mention in each of her four seasons. While serving as the Spartans' defensive anchor, Thomas also contributed 7.5 points, 4.0 rebounds and 3.2 assists for her career. She ranks fifth among the school's career assist leaders with 401. Thomas spent the 2011-12 season playing for Telge in Sweden, averaging 13.4 points, 4.7 rebounds and 4.1 assists in the Swedish League.

Tamane, a 6-7 center from Latvia, played collegiately at Western Illinois and was originally selected by the Detroit Shock in the third round of the 2006 WNBA Draft. She later signed as a free agent with the Washington Mystics where she appeared in 16 games during the 2006 season. Tamane has played internationally since, most recently with Fenerbahce in Istanbul, Turkey, where she was a teammate of Mercury forward Penny Taylor and averaged 10.7 points, 6.3 rebounds and shot 61.3 percent from the field during the 2011-12 Euroleague season.

Reed is a 6-1 forward from the University of Arkansas-Little Rock, where she became the school's first women's basketball player ever drafted in the WNBA, taken 25th overall by the Tulsa Shock in the 2011 Draft. She appeared in 11 games for the Shock last season. Collegiately, Reed averaged 17.4 points and 7.1 rebounds per game, shooting 45.1 percent from the field, and was named the 2011 Sunbelt Conference Player of the Year as a senior. Most recently, Reed averaged 13.5 points and 8.2 rebounds in the Israeli League while playing for Hapoel Petah Tikva.

The Mercury will add to its roster on Monday during the 2012 WNBA Draft. Phoenix owns the sixth overall pick, the 24th overall pick (second round) and two third round selections (30th and 33rd overall). The draft will begin at 11 a.m. Phoenix time with the first round broadcast on ESPN2 and the second and third rounds on ESPNU and NBATV. ESPN3.com will also simulcast all three rounds.

The Mercury tips off the 2012 season on May 20 against the defending champion Minnesota Lynx. The game will be broadcast on ABC at 9:30 a.m.

Parker's layup helps Sparks sweep Mercury - 5 days ago
Candace Parker (6'4''-C/F-86, college: Tennessee) hobbled into the postgame press conference with ice bags over both knees and slung over her left shoulder. But soreness was a small price to pay for a return trip to the WNBA Finals. Parker drove for a layup with 2.9 seconds to play, giving the Los Angeles Sparks an 89-87 win and three-game sweep of the Phoenix Mercury in the WNBA semifinals Sunday. Parker, a two-time league Most Valuable Player, finished with 21 points and 11 assists. The...   [read more]

Moore, Fowles help Lynx sweep Mystics, return to WNBA Finals - 5 days ago
The Minnesota Lynx are back in the WNBA Finals after completing a semifinal sweep of the Washington Mystics on Sunday. That doesn't mean it was easy. Maya Moore (6'0''-SG-89, college: Connecticut) scored 21 points, Sylvia Fowles (6'6''-C-85, college: LSU) added 17 points and 14 rebounds, and the Lynx sealed their place in a third straight finals after pulling away to an 81-70 win in Game 3. Seimone Augustus (6'0''-SF-84, college: LSU) added 18 points to help make sure Minnesota will have...   [read more]

Fowles, Moore lift Lynx over Mystics, 93-83 - 8 days ago
In the precious few minutes newly crowned MVP Sylvia Fowles (6'6''-C-85, college: LSU) sat on the bench during Game 2 of the WNBA semifinals, she allowed herself to soak up the raucous atmosphere of the University of Minnesota's Williams Arena and marvel at just how loud 9,000 fans can get. "You know why it's loud, Syl?" said teammate Lindsay Whalen (5'9''-PG-82, college: Minnesota), a former Golden Gophers All-American. "Because it's 'The Barn.'" Fowles scored 25 points to lead the Lynx...   [read more]
