ARLINGTON, Texas – The Dallas Wings Center Imani McGee-Stafford will miss out on the next two WNBA seasons to study law.
McGee-Stafford said on Monday about the Wings that it was enrolled in a program at the Southwestern Law School in Los Angeles that included an accelerated curriculum for law schools.
The 6-foot-7 center was designed in the 2016 WNBA draft by Chicago as the 10th of Texas from Texas. It was traded to Atlanta during the 2017 season and then sold to the Wings before the 2019 season. The 25-year-old native of California also played for the Perth Lynx in a women's professional league in Australia.
"Although I am sad to be moving away from such a large part of my life, I am looking forward to this next chapter," said McGee-Stafford and also thanked the Wings officials for their understanding and support in their decision.
Greg Bibb, Wings president and CEO, said the team supported their decision to withdraw from the WNBA "to achieve a long-term goal."
McGee-Stafford scored an average of 3.9 points and 3.8 rebounds per game for the Wings last season when she started six of her 29 games. She has played in 121 WNBA games with an average of 4.4 points and 4.2 rebounds in the last four seasons.
