The Indiana Fever have acquired five-time WNBA All-Star Candice Dupree in a three-team trade involving the Phoenix Mercury and Connecticut Sun. The deal was announced by Fever President and General Manager Kelly Krauskopf on Twitter.
Indiana receives Dupree and a second-round draft pick (No. 17 overall) in the 2017 WNBA Draft from the Mercury. Indiana will send Lynetta Kizer and the Fever’s first-round draft pick (No. 8 overall) to Connecticut. Connecticut trades Camille Little and Jillian Aleyne to Phoenix to finalize the trade.
Indiana is coming off 17-17 season and the retirement of Fever great, Tamika Catchings. The Fever lost to the Mercury in the one-game first round of the WNBA Playoffs under the new format where the conference doesn’t matter.
