The eight-year vet was named to her second-straight All-Star game after posting 12.8 points, a career-high 8.9 rebounds, and 1.3 steals per game on 53.5 percent shooting from the field.
“We are very happy to re-sign two-time Sixth Player of the Year and two-time All-Star Dearica Hamby to a multi-year contract extension,” said Williams. “She has been a key piece of our core group for several years now, and her energy and hustle will be invaluable to our future success.”
“I’m blessed,” allowed Hamby. “What we’ve been building in Las Vegas is incredibly special, and I’m excited to continue to be a part of it.”
Hamby is a back-to-back Sixth Player of the Year winner, taking the awards home in 2019 and 2020.
The Aces (14-4) have the best record in the W and will play a back-to-back set against the Storm and Lynx before the All-Star break starts.
