Armintie Heading Back Overseas

Sky guard Armintie Price, the WNBA’s 2007 Rookie of the Year, has signed a contract to play for Israel’s Maccabi Ramat Hen. She will leave for Israel to meet with her team on January 7.

Armintie will join six-time WNBA All-Star and Los Angeles Sparks forward Taj McWilliams-Franklin, who also recently signed with Ramat Hen.

Armintie played eight games earlier this winter for Shelen-ETK in Russia, where she averaged 14.7 points, 6.8 rebounds and 2.6 assists in 28 minutes per game. The team ran into financial difficulties, so she returned home in December and began working out with her former college team, the University of Mississippi Lady Rebels.
