SEATTLE — The Seattle Storm announced the signing of forward N’dea Jones to a 7-day contract on Monday. Per team policy, terms of the deal were not disclosed.
Jones was selected No. 23 overall by the Storm in the second round of the 2021 WNBA draft before being waived prior to the start of the season.
Jones, a 6-foot-2 forward, was a two-time All-SEC selection and 2021 Honorable Mention All-American at Texas A&M. After playing sparingly as a freshman, she burst on the scene her sophomore season, ranking second in the SEC with 11.3 rebounds per game to go along with 7.7 points per contest. She bested those numbers as a junior, leading the conference with 11.7 boards while scoring 11.0 points a game to earn All-SEC honors. Jones left A&M as the school’s all-time leader in rebounds (1,056) and double-doubles (42).
Jones will be eligible for Wednesday’s home game against the Los Angeles Sparks at 7pm at Angel Of The Winds Arena.
