Storm legend Bird returning for 19th WNBA season
Sue Bird isn't ready to call it a career just yet.
The Seattle Storm legend announced Friday on social media that she'll be returning for her 19th WNBA season.
Bird has spent her entire WNBA career in Seattle after being drafted first overall by the club in 2002. She's earned 12 All-Star selections and eight All-WNBA nods over nearly two decades in the league.
The UConn product is the WNBA's all-time assist leader and is the only player in league history to win a title in three different decades.
Bird averaged 10 points and 5.3 assists over 30 appearances during the 2021 campaign. She won her fifth Olympic gold medal with Team USA at last summer's games in Tokyo.
