Gilbreath is a 6-0 guard from Southern California (USC) standout was drafted by the Mystics in the third round this year. She did not make the roster in the nations capital, but will have an opportunity to play on a Mercury team that has seen three players go down with season ending injuries.
With Samantha Prahalis and Alexis Hornbuckle starting and newcomer Dymond Simon coming off the bench the Mercury can use all the help they can get in the back court. She is a scoring guard that was very active on the glass in college, both will be welcome additions.
