Washington Mystics Match Lynx’ Offer to Free Agent Guard Coco Miller

The Minnesota Lynx today announced that the Washington Mystics have matched the offer sheet signed by free-agent guard Coco Miller. The Lynx originally signed Miller to the offer sheet on Feb. 7 and per WNBA rules, the Mystics had 10 days to match the offer.

The Lynx opened the free-agent period by signing forward Adrian Williams. A five-year veteran of the WNBA, Williams compiled her best season in the league during the 2003 campaign, when she averaged 9.8 points, (.402 FG%, .612 FT%) 7.4 rebounds and 29.0 minutes in 34 games (33 starts) for the Mercury, earning a spot on the Western Conference All-Star team.

The Lynx won the fifth annual WNBA Draft Lottery in October, earning the first pick in the 2006 WNBA Draft. The team also holds the seventh overall pick in the WNBA draft, which is slated for April 5 in Boston.
