CHICAGO – The Chicago Sky have signed forward Leslie Robinson to a training camp contract, the team announced.
A 6-foot-0 former Princeton standout, Robinson most recently played overseas for Krofdorf in Germany, where she averaged 22 points, 12.6 rebounds and 2.3 assists per game.
“We like Leslie’s versatility, transforming from a small-ball player to having perimeter skills,” Sky General Manager and Head Coach James Wade said. “We kept up with her in Germany and liked the progression we saw, so are looking forward to having her at training camp.”
Originally selected by the New York Liberty with the 34th overall pick in the 2018 WNBA Draft, Robinson competed in two preseason games with the Liberty ahead of the 2018 WNBA season.
“I’m just really excited to have another chance to be at training camp, especially after growing my game this past year overseas in Germany and learning more about myself, how I need to play, and bettering my game,” Robinson said. “Specifically, I’m excited to come to Chicago’s program. [The Sky] was one of the first teams I really started following, having grown up in Chicago the first 10 years of my life, so to have this opportunity is really an honor.”
Training camp opens on Sunday, May 5. The Sky open the 2019 season on the road against the Minnesota Lynx on May 25. Fans can purchase tickets to all home games at Wintrust Arena by visiting sky.wnba.com or by calling (866) SKY-WNBA.
