Lynx Sign Fowles To Multiyear Contract Extension

Lynx Sign Fowles To Multiyear Contract Extension”

Minnesota announced Friday it agreed to a contract extension with MVP front-runner Sylvia Fowles.

"We are happy to have extended the contract of one of our team leaders and one of the best players in the WNBA", Lynx executive vice president Roger Griffith said in the statement. She was named WNBA Finals MVP that year after helping the Lynx beat the Indiana Fever for their third WNBA championship. Fowles was set to become a free agent this upcoming offseason, but the terms of the new deal were not made available. Over the last three years, Sylvia has been an integral part of our success and is undoubtedly one of the elite centers in the WNBA. She's averaging a double-double this season, posting 19.1 points and 10.4 rebounds per game for the Lynx.

Maya Moore hit her 461st career 3-pointer, moving past Katie Smith for the franchise record. Minnesota and L.A. already have those double-byes locked up, but this final weekend will be a battle for home-court advantage throughout the WNBA Playoffs. Fowles has also enjoyed the best effective shooting (65.0) and true shooting (69.0) percentages of her career.

Fowles' career accolades include winning Finals MVP in 2015, making four appearances in the WNBA All-Star Game, a three-time Defensive Player of the Year victor, and a two-time member of the All-WNBA First Team.
