Lynx Re-Sign G Candice Wiggins

MINNEAPOLIS (AP) — Candice Wiggins is returning to help the Minnesota Lynx defend their WNBA title.

The Lynx announced on Friday that they have re-signed the veteran guard. Terms of the deal were not disclosed.

Wiggins was a valuable reserve during last season’s run to the franchise’s first title. Her defensive energy off the bench and perimeter shooting proved pivotal in the playoffs.

Her best performance came in Game 1 of the Western Conference finals against Phoenix when she scored 14 points and hit four 3-pointers in a 95-67 romp.

Coming off of knee surgery that limited her to eight games in 2010, Wiggins averaged career lows with 5.9 points and 17.1 minutes per game. But she made a career-high 49 3-pointers, which was good for second on the team.

    I thought the W league folded? How long will this joke last?
