Sparks land All-Star Dearica Hamby, first-round pick in blockbuster trade with Aces

The Aces agreed to a blockbuster trade for star forward Dearica Hamby on Saturday, a stunning move that comes just over four months after the franchise won its first WNBA championship.

Las Vegas will send Hamby, 29, and a 2024 first-round pick to the Sparks in exchange for a 2024 second-round pick and the negotiating rights to forward Amanda Zahui B., the teams announced. Zahui B., 29, is currently a free agent after spending the past two seasons with LA

“Dearica has dedicated eight years of her career to this organization and played a major role in our success since the team moved to Las Vegas,” Aces general manager Natalie Williams said in a statement. “We will miss her as a teammate and are grateful for all her contributions to the Aces over the years.”
