Sparks trade Lindsay Wisdom-Hylton to Chicago Sky

For some reason, I had a feeling LWH wouldn’t be around this season. From Sparks HQ:

Lindsay Wisdom-Hylton Traded to Chicago Sky for 2012 Second Round Pick
Sparks Now Hold Five Selections in 2012 WNBA Draft

LOS ANGELES –The Los Angeles Sparks have traded forward Lindsay Wisdom-Hylton to the Chicago Sky in exchange for a second round pick in the 2012 WNBA Draft, Sparks General Manager Penny Toler announced Wednesday.

“We appreciate Lindsay’s contributions to the Sparks over the past two seasons and wish her well as she returns to her hometown of Chicago,” Toler said.

The 6’2” native of Naperville, Ill., averaged 3.5 points and 2.5 rebounds in 61 career regular season games with the Sparks after being drafted in the first round, 13th overall in 2009. Coincidentally, her career high of 16 points were scored during an Aug. 4, 2010 victory over Chicago.

With the acquisition of the Sky’s second round selection, Los Angeles now holds five picks in the 2012 WNBA Draft. In February, the Sparks received a second round choice from the Tulsa Shock in exchange for guard Andrea Riley.

The Sparks roster currently stands at 12 players, which must be trimmed to 11 by 11 a.m. PT on Thursday.
