DALLAS — The Dallas Wings continue to add to its roster for the upcoming season, adding two more players on Thursday. 

The Wings announced it had signed guard Crystal Dangerfield to a multi-year deal and also added center Kalani Brown. 

Dangerfield was acquired via trade with the New York Liberty on Jan. 16 and is entering her fourth season in the WNBA. She won the 2020 WNBA Rookie of the Year Award after averaging 16.2 points and nearly four assists for the Minnesota Lynx. In three seasons, Dangerfield has appeared in 85 games and averaged nearly nine points and three assists.

“We are excited to officially sign Crystal Dangerfield to a multi-year agreement,” Dallas Wings President and CEO Greg Bibb said. “Crystal has demonstrated the ability to play at an elite level in the WNBA and she will add talent and depth to our backcourt.”

Brown, a Baylor University grad and seventh overall in the 2019 WNBA draft by the Los Angeles Sparks, played three years in the WNBA before leaving to play overseas. She is currently averaging 22.3 points, 9.5 rebounds, and 1.7 blocks this season with Maccabi Bnot Ashdod in Israel.

“Kalani Brown has worked hard to prepare for the upcoming WNBA season and will join us while playing the best basketball of her professional career,” Bibb said. “Kalani’s size and skill set will be a great addition to our front court and she will compete for a roster spot during our upcoming training camp. We are excited to see what she contributes and how she fits with our roster.”

These signings come after the team announced Texas native Teaira McCowan had come to the Wings on a multi-year deal, as well. Dallas also traded for Atlanta Dream's Allisha Gray this off-season.

The Dallas Wings are entering their eighth season in North Texas and play their home games at College Park Center in Arlington. The Wings have made the playoffs four of their first seven seasons in Dallas.
