The Dallas Wings have signed Odyssey Sims, the team announced today. Sims’ contract is a standard rest of season contract.
Sims previously signed with the Wings on a hardship exception on June 7 and appeared in four games with the team, where she averaged nearly five points and six assists in an average of 20 minutes of action.
“Odyssey is a proven player in the WNBA who demonstrated in her brief time with the Wings earlier this season that she can contribute to the success of our team,” Wings President & CEO Greg Bibb stated. “We are excited to have her re-join us today.”
Sims was originally drafted with the second overall selection in the 2014 WNBA Draft by the Tulsa Shock and was a member of the 2014 WNBA All-Rookie Team. She spent the 2016 season with the Dallas Wings and appeared in 34 games, while averaging 14 points and nearly four assists. In 2019, she was named a WNBA All-Star and was a member of the All-WNBA Second Team, as a member of the Minnesota Lynx. Sims attended Baylor University where she was a member of the 2012 National Championship Baylor Bears Women’s Basketball team that finished the season with a perfect 40-0 record.
To make room for Sims, the club waived Jasmine Dickey and Ashley Joens. The Wings also released Kalani Brown from the hardship contract she signed on May 30.
