Czech champions ZVVZ USK Prague have announced the signing of American guard Layshia Clarendon.

Clarendon was ninth overall pick in this year’s WNBA draft by the Indiana Fever.

In her first season so far she has been averaging 5 points, 2 rebounds and 1.7 assists per game.

“Coach Hejkova saw her in the USA, liked her and we believe she will succeed playing for our club,” said the team’s manager Mark Kucera.

“I had the opportunity to talk to her in person and I got a very good impression of her from our conversation. When I saw Layshia play, I felt that she was not the typical American player who is individualistic. She can also set up plays for her teammates, which is very important,” added Kucera.
