Tulsa Shock center Elizabeth Cambage will not return to Tulsa for the 2014 WNBA season. Cambage will remain in Australia to train with the Australian National Basketball Team for the upcoming FIBA World Championship in Turkey.
As an organization, we were very disappointed when we learned through Lizs agent last week that Liz will not be returning to Tulsa for our fifth season, said Steve Swetoha, President of the Tulsa Shock.
"I am disappointed Liz will not be with us this season," said Tulsa Shock, Head Coach Fred Williams. "I was looking forward to working with her on the basketball court."
With Cambage not returning, the Shock still retain her rights in the WNBA and her roster spot will be available for this season. Cambage led the Shock in 2013 averaging 16.3 points per game and shooting 56.1 percent from the field.
