How She Joined The Sun: One of the original members of the franchise, Taj was drafted by the Orlando Miracle in the third round (33rd overall) of the 1999 WNBA Draft..

Sun Career: Taj relocated to Connecticut when the Miracle were purchased by Mohegan Sun, and played four seasons here, anchoring a team that reached two WNBA Finals and four straight Eastern Conference Finals. She is still the all-time leading rebounder in franchise history, and was one of 10 players voted by fans and media to the Sun All Decade team earlier this season.

After Connecticut: Now a member of the Minnesota Lynx, Taj helped the team win its first WNBA title last year. After Connecticut, Taj went on to Los Angeles and Washington before joining the Detroit Shock, which won the WNBA title in 2008. She also played for the New York Liberty.
