Seattle Storm Signs Free Agent Guard Shavonte Zellous

Zellous has reached the playoffs in nine of her 10 WNBA seasons

SEATTLE – The Seattle Storm today announced that the team has signed free agent guard Shavonte Zellous to the 2019 roster.

“Shavonte is a true competitor and a strong defender in this league,” said Storm CEO and General Manager Alisha Valavanis. “She brings experience and value on both sides of the ball, making her a great addition to this roster.”

A 10-year veteran of the WNBA, Zellous spent the last three seasons with the New York Liberty. She started 22 games in 2018, averaging 8.2 points, 3.1 rebounds and career-high 3.0 assists per game following a year in which she grabbed a career-best 4.0 boards per game.

“I’m extremely happy to join the Seattle Storm,” said Zellous. “I look forward to helping the team have another great season in 2019.”

An All-Big East First Team honoree in each of her last three seasons at Pittsburgh, Zellous was drafted by the Detroit Shock with the No. 11 pick in the 2009 WNBA Draft. After averaging 11.9 points per game and earning a place on the All-Rookie Team, she was traded to the Indiana Fever in 2010, where she spent six years and made two appearances in the WNBA Finals, capturing the title in 2012. The following season, the 5-foot-10 guard nearly doubled her scoring output with a career-high 14.7 points per game and was named a WNBA All-Star and the league’s Most Improved Player.
