NEW YORK — Dearica Hamby will replace injured Los Angeles Sparks teammate Cameron Brink on the U.S. 3x3 Olympic basketball team.

Brink tore the ACL in her left knee last week while playing in a WNBA game against the Connecticut Sun.

Hamby joins Hailey Van Lith, Cierra Burdick and Rhyne Howard on the squad that will compete at the Paris Games next month. The U.S. won the inaugural 3x3 Olympic gold medal in Tokyo in 2021.

Hamby was MVP of the 2023 3x3 AmeriCup and was part of the national team camp in Springfield, Massachusetts, in April.
