Liberty Acquires Korie Hlede
"This is one of the players who has impressed me since the inception of the league, and I am thrilled that we have been able to acquire her." said Carol Blazejowski, Liberty Senior Vice President and General Manager.
"She is a versatile player who makes an impact at multiple positions and is a dangerous three-point shooter."
Originally selected by the Detroit Shock in the first round (4th overall) of the 1998 Draft, Utah acquired Hlede in a multi-player deal on July 29, 1999. Over her WNBA career, the 5'9" guard/forward, has averaged 9.9 ppg, while shooting 40 percent from beyond the three-point line.
