The Liberty signed veteran Swin Cash for the remainder of the season, the team announced on Tuesday morning.
Cash, who played in 34 games for the Liberty last season, was waived on May 11 for salary cap purposes. According to WNBA rules, the Liberty needed to wait a minimum of 10 days to re-sign Cash.
Cash, who averaged 4.5 points and 2.4 rebounds in 17 minutes per game last season, is eligible to play in Tuesday’s game against the Atlanta Dream at Madison Square Garden.
“It’s wonderful to finally be back on the court with my teammates,” Cash said. “I feel great physically and I’m looking forward to contributing to this young team, both on and off the court. As one of the charter teams of the WNBA, which is celebrating its 20th anniversary, I think it’s going to be a great year for the New York Liberty and I’m happy to be part of that!”
Cash, a 6-foot forward, begins her 16th season in the WNBA ranked in nearly every major statistical category in league history. She is currently seventh with 448 games played and 12,849 in minutes. Cash ranks 14th in scoring at 4,955 points, 10th in rebounding (2,416) and 15th in assists (1,090). Cash has averaged 11.0 points, 5.4 rebounds and 2.4 assists over her career.
She is a three-time WNBA champion (2003, 2006, 2010) and four-time WNBA All-Star (2003, 2005, 2009, 2011). Cash has also had success on the international level, winning two Olympic gold medals with the U.S. national team in Athens (2004) and London (2012).
