SEATTLE — The Seattle Storm announced the signing of forward Cierra Burdick to a rest of season contract on Wednesday. Per team policy, terms of the deal were not disclosed.

Burdick, a Charlotte, North Carolina native, was originally signed to a 7-day contract with the Storm on July 1, then a second on July 8.  She has appeared in two games for Seattle this season.
