Following today’s game against Sparta&K, UMMC forward Candace Parker confirmed to RIA News that she has re-signed with UMMC.
“Yes, I’m staying here. I just signed a contract for one more season,” she’s being quoted saying by RIA News.
This signing could put a wrench in all the rumors of Taurasi and Taylor going to Ekaterinburg – only two of those three would be able to play in EuroLeague Women which is the main competition for UMMC. So unlike both Turkish team’s, their priority is Europe not domestic league.
In ELW Parker averaged 13.8 points and 6.8 rebounds, while in Russian league her numbers following today’s 30 point outburst are 14.4 points and 7.5 rebounds.
