Angel McCoughtry and the Minnesota Lynx agreed to a buy-out on Thursday only a few months after signing the five-time All-Star as a free agent in February.
McCoughtry, 35, has performed simply 20 minutes by the group’s 0-3 begin.
“Although the organization has been very patient with my injury and helping me heal my body, sometimes it’s about what fits best for both parties. I believe in myself, and I know I will be all the way back to perform at the highest level.” McCoughtry mentioned in an announcement the Lynx launched.
McCoughtry underwent surgical procedure for a torn ACL and meniscus tear she suffered final season. McCoughtry holds the WNBA Finals file for factors in a sport (38) and playoff sport (42). She was the primary total choose by Atlanta in 2009, the place she performed 10 seasons, profitable two back-to-back scoring titles, was named to 6 All-WNBA groups, and earned eight All-Defensive choices. McCoughtry gained two Olympic gold medals with Team USA.
She is fifteenth all-time in scoring and eighth in factors per sport at 18.6.
