Where Are They Now? - Shannon "Pee Wee" Johnson

Throughout the 2012 season, which marks the 10th Anniversary of the Connecticut Sun, we will be taking a look back at the members of the 2003 roster that went 18-16 and advanced to the Eastern Conference Finals. The first member of the team that we are catching up with is point guard Shannon "Pee Wee" Johnson.

How She Joined The Sun: Shannon was an original member of the Orlando Miracle who moved to Connecticut with the franchise in 2003. She had been allocated to the Orlando Miracle on May 3, 1999 after playing three seasons with the Columbus Quest of the ABL.

Sun Career: One of the best players in franchise history, Shannon set a team record with 196 assists in 2003, her only season in Connecticut. She helped lead the Sun to their first playoff series victory -- a sweep of the favored Charlotte Sting -- and a berth in the Eastern Conference Finals against the eventual-champion Detroit Shock. After the season, Shannon was traded to the San Antonio Silver Stars for the fourth pick in the 2004 WNBA Draft. That pick was used to select rookie Lindsay Whalen.

After Connecticut: Shannon went on to play for San Antonio, Detroit and Houston before finishing her career in Seattle, where she retired after the 2009 season. She played internationally in Spain until 2011, and is currently an assistant coach with the Northwestern State women’s basketball team.
