Renee Montgomery Agrees to a Multi-Year Deal with the Atlanta Dream

And just like that day 1 of WNBA free agency has begun…

Renee Montgomery has agreed to terms for a multi year deal with the Atlanta Dream. Montgomery averaged 8.0 points a game and 3.4 assists per game last season for the Minnesota Lynx.

Renee brings a much needed championship mentality to Atlanta after winning two WNBA titles in Minnesota.

I’m very interested to see how first year head coach Nikki Cullen utilizes Montgomery’s veteran leadership on a young team. Overall, a good get for the Dream bringing a winner to Atlanta. Excited for Montgomery as she’ll likely see an expanded role after spending much of her time in Minnesota backing up Lindsay Whalen.

I stumbled on this throwback photo and I can confidently say I’ve never been more optimistic on the future of the WNBA. Look at Lisa Borders pinching Lil Wayne’s cheeks like he’s her nephew.

This what the league needs. Someone who isn’t afraid to grab life by the horns or Lil Wayne by the face. The WNBA (and Lil Wayne) is in good hands. If you don’t trust the current leadership then I’ve got two words for ya…

I’m convinced this is the greatest photo of all time.
