ARLINGTON, TX – The Dallas Wings announced today guard Allisha Gray has signed a multi-year contract to remain in Dallas. The terms of the agreement are undisclosed per team policy.
“We are thrilled to sign Allisha to a multi-year contract and to have her continue her WNBA career with the Dallas Wings,” President and CEO Greg Bibb stated. “Having drafted Allisha in 2017, witnessed her win the WNBA Rookie-of-the-Year award that year and develop into an outstanding player in our League, re-signing her was our top priority this off-season. Allisha’s decision to commit to our organization is a testament to what we are building. Our future is bright, and Allisha Gray will play a key role for our team as we continue to grow and improve moving forward.”
Gray was the 2017 Rookie of the Year after being drafted fourth overall by Dallas, and her 13.1 points per game last summer were the highest of her career. The University of South Carolina graduate also had a career-best three games with more than 20 points in the shortened 2020 season, including a career-high 26 against Minnesota on September 4. In addition to her scoring, Gray also averaged a career-high 4.2 rebounds per game and shot a career-best 46.4 percent from the field. The former Gamecock was also one of just six players since 2017 to play in at least 122 of the 124 regular season games and is a member of Team USA’s 3v3 team.
“I would like to thank Greg Bibb and the Dallas Wings organization for believing and having the confidence in me to help take our team to the next level,” Gray said. “From the time I entered the league, this organization and the city of Dallas have embraced me and I’m looking forward to showing them they made the right choice. I am excited about the future and cannot wait to get started.”
Gray becomes the latest player in the past few years to sign a multi-year agreement to stay in Dallas, joining Moriah Jefferson, Isabelle Harrison and Kayla Thornton, among others.
