Nykesha Sales returning to Connecticut Sun

Former Connecticut Sun and UConn star Nykesha Sales is returning to the state to be an assistant to the new coaching staff and community liaison during the 2013 season.

Sales scored a team record 3,955 points in 278 games with the franchise, beginning her career when the franchise played in Orlando. She played in a team-record 248 consecutive games from June 10, 1999-July 6, 2006, and still holds the all-time Connecticut marks for points, games, minutes (8,762), made field goals (1,481), field goal attempts (3,539), made three-pointers (352), three-point attempts (990) and steals (490).

“I am extremely excited about being a part of the Sun again this summer,” Sales said in a statement. “It has always been a great organization, and I have a lot of amazing memories from my time there as a player. Although I’m returning with a whole new role and responsibilities I’m really looking forward to helping Anne and her staff as they try to bring a championship to the best fans in the WNBA. And getting out into the community as a representative of the team is going to be so much fun.”
