Lynx Sign Free Agent Shooting Guard Erin Thorn

MINNEAPOLIS (AP) — The Minnesota Lynx have signed free agent shooting guard Erin Thorn, formerly of the Chicago Sky.

The deal was announced Monday.

The 5-foot-9 Thorn shot nearly 40 percent from 3-point range last season as a reserve for the Sky. She appeared in all 34 games and averaged 5.4 points, 2.4 assists and 1.7 rebounds in 16.8 minutes.

Thorn was drafted by the New York Liberty in the second round in 2003. This will be her 10th year in the WNBA.

The defending champion Lynx open the 2012 season at home against the Phoenix Mercury on May 20.
