New York Liberty Acquire Swin Cash

NEW YORK, NY – JULY 9, 2014 – New York Liberty Head Coach and General Manager Bill Laimbeer announced today that the team has acquired forward Swin Cash in a trade with the Atlanta Dream, in exchange for forward Delisha Milton-Jones.

“We have been able to identify our style of play for now and in the future, and Swin fits that style,” said Laimbeer. “Delisha has been a solid player for us, and we think this is a move that benefits both teams.”

Cash, a three-time WNBA Champion (2003, 2006, 2010) and four-time All-Star (2003, 2005, 2009, 2011), was the second overall pick of the Detroit Shock in 2002. The 12-year WNBA veteran reunites with Laimbeer who she was with for six seasons and won two WNBA Championships as a member of the Shock. Cash has appeared in 399 career games, averaging 11.9 points, 5.7 rebounds and 2.6 assists per game. In 49 WNBA playoff games, she has posted 10.9 points, 5.2 rebounds and 2.6 assists per contest.

Cash was also a two-time All-WNBA selection (2003, 2004) and All-Defensive Team honoree in 2011. She played for four other teams during her illustrious career -- the Detroit Shock, Seattle Storm, Chicago Sky and Atlanta Dream.

Milton-Jones joined the Liberty in 2013 and appeared in 18 games this season, averaging 5.9 points and 2.5 rebounds per game. In 16 seasons in the WNBA, Milton-Jones won back-to-back WNBA Championships with the Los Angeles Sparks (2001, 2002) and was a two-time WNBA All-Star (2000, 2007). She has career averages of 11.5 points and 5.3 rebounds per game.

The Liberty return to Madison Square Garden to host the Los Angeles Sparks on Friday, July 11 at 7:30 p.m.
