Two-time All-Star guard brings decade of WNBA experience to Seattle
SEATTLE – The Seattle Storm today announced that the franchise has signed veteran guard Epiphanny Prince. Per team policy, terms of the deal were not disclosed.
“Epiphanny’s tenure in our league has been an impressive one. Her skill and versatility in the backcourt add depth to our roster,” said Storm CEO and General Manager Alisha Valavanis. “She is a great fit on and off the court for the Storm and we’re excited to welcome her to Seattle.”
A 10-year WNBA veteran, Prince has averaged 13.2 points, 2.9 assists and 2.3 rebounds per game throughout her career, while connecting on 37.3 percent of her three-point attempts. Currently playing for Dynamo Kursk in the Russian Premier League, Prince is averaging 12.2 points and 3.8 assists per game and boasts a 40.4 three-point field goal percentage in EuroLeague action.
“I’m very excited about coming to the city of Seattle and joining a great organization,” said Prince. “I’m extremely grateful for this opportunity, and I can’t wait to get started with my new teammates and coaches.”
Last appearing in the WNBA with the Las Vegas Aces, Prince helped the team secure a first-round bye in the 2019 playoffs. In total, she has reached the postseason six times, including a run to the 2014 WNBA Finals with the Chicago Sky. After earning two All-Star selections with Chicago, the New York native was traded to the Liberty prior to the start of the 2015 season, where she immediately contributed as the team’s second-leading scorer and finished the season with All-WNBA Second Team honors. In 2017, Prince was named AP Comeback Player of the Year after missing the majority of the 2016 season to recover from a torn ACL.
A standout at Rutgers University, Prince got her professional start overseas in Turkey before joining the WNBA as the No. 4 overall selection by Chicago in the 2010 WNBA Draft. Her success on the international circuit includes three trips to the EuroLeague Finals, most recently in 2019 alongside Breanna Stewart.
