ATLANTA (AP) — After being swept by Seattle in last season’s WNBA finals, the Atlanta Dream are back with new point guard Lindsey Harding as another scorer on an already potent attack.
In the franchise’s third season, the Dream was a surprise last season by emerging from the Eastern Conference. Now coach Marynell Meadors said Monday it may be more difficult to return to the finals, even with Harding added to the roster.
The Dream acquired Harding from Washington in a draft-day trade that sent guard Kelly Miller and Atlanta’s first-round pick, Ta’Shia Phillips, to the Mystics.
The Dream will leave Atlanta Wednesday to spend five days in Manchester, England for clinics and a game on Sunday against the British national team.
