The already big Mercury roster welcomed in another young, big addition to the team in rookie big Lynetta Kizer out of Maryland University.
With Andrea Riley no longer under contract the team had one open roster spot and are giving Kizer a chance for a week as the team is getting ready for the Olympic Break. They play three out of their next four at home before getting basically a month off for the Olympics.
Kizer averaged 12.2 PPG and grabbed 7.2 RPG over her four year career in the ACC.
As of today the team has Nakia Sanford, Krystal Thomas, Avery Warley, Candice Dupree, and now Kizer vying for minutes in the paint. The Mercury play next at home as they host the Atlanta Dream at 7pm local time on Saturday, July 7th.
