SEATTLE – The Seattle Storm today announced the signing of 6-5 center Krystal Thomas.
Thomas, who was drafted by the Storm in the third round (36th overall) of the 2011 WNBA Draft, played seven games in a Seattle jersey that same season. She then signed a series of seven-day contracts with both Phoenix and Seattle spanning the 2011 and 2012 seasons, logging 29 games with the Mercury in 2012, and appeared in all 34 regular-season games for Phoenix in 2013. Thomas was signed by the Fever prior to the 2014 campaign, when she played in 21 contests.
