Dream Signs Sydney Carter To Training Camp Contract

ATLANTA, March 18, 2013 – The Atlanta Dream announced Monday that it has signed Sydney Carter to a training camp contract. Per team policy, contract terms were not disclosed.

Carter, a 5-6 guard, played in one game as a rookie in 2012 for Chicago, scoring four points June 23 at Minnesota. She was a standout at Texas A&M, helping the Aggies win the 2011 National Championship while being named the Most Oustanding Player at the NCAA Dallas Regional that season. A three-time co-captain for Texas A&M, Carter was twice named to the Big 12 All-Defensive Team.

Carter averaged 11.2 points, 3.3 rebounds and 3.1 assists as a senior, earning All-Big 12 Second Team honors. She was honorable mention All-Big 12 as both a junior and sophomore, and was a member of the Big 12 All-Freshman Team.

“Sydney is an excellent ball-handler and scorer,” said Dream Head Coach and General Manager Fred Williams. “Her speed and quickness enable her to get to the rim, score or pass. She will be a good addition to our squad.”

The two-time Eastern Conference Champion Atlanta Dream will tip off its sixth season in the Women’s National Basketball Association (WNBA) on May 25 at Philips Arena. The Dream qualified for the playoffs in each of the past four seasons, including back-to-back conference titles in 2010 and 2011.
