UNCASVILLE, Conn. (July 18, 2014) – The Connecticut Sun announced today that it has signed forward Ebony Hoffman for the remainder of the season. To make space on the roster, Kelley Cain was waived.

Per team policy, no terms were announced.

“Ebony will add valuable post experience to our roster which will be important as we make a string push for playoffs,” Sun head coach Anne Donovan said.

Hoffman, a 10-year WNBA veteran, spent the 2013 season as a member of the Los Angeles Sparks, where she averaged 3.1 points and 1.9 rebounds in 33 games. For her career the 6-foot-2 forward has played in 319 games, averaging 6.0 points and 4.3 rebounds per game.

Cain, who signed with the Sun as a free agent on March 25th, played in nine games for Connecticut this season. She averaged 1.2 points and 1.3 rebounds in those contests.

Connecticut will be in action next on Wednesday, July 23rd at Washington. That game is at 11:30 a.m. and will be broadcast on NBATV.
