DREAM WAIVES GUARD ASHLEY SHIELDS

ATLANTA, April 28, 2009— The Atlanta Dream announced today that the team has waived guard Ashley Shields. Shields, a 5-10 guard, was acquired by the Dream earlier this month in a draft day deal which sent Atlanta’s 18th overall pick to the Detroit Shock.

The Southwest Tennessee Community College product made a splash in the 2007 draft, when she was drafted eighth overall by the Houston Comets, becoming the first WNBA draftee from a junior college. Shields signed with the Detroit Shock last season as a free agent after being waived by the Comets. In seven games with the Shock, Shields averaged 3.1 points, 0.4 rebounds and 0.3 assists per game.
