Kayla Pedersen acquired by Connecticut Sun

The Connecticut Sun attempted to bolster its frontcourt by acquiring former first-round pick Kayla Pedersen from the Tulsa Shock in exchange for a second-round pick in the 2014 WNBA draft.

Pedersen, the seventh overall pick in 2011, has started 50 games over the last three seasons including five this season.

Pedersen, a 6-foot-4 forward who starred collegiately at Stanford, averaged a career-high 6.8 points as a rookie. This season she is averaging 4.1 points, 4 rebounds, 1.8 assists, 0.9 steals and 0.9 blocks per game.

Pedersen had a season-high 10 points in a June 7 win against Seattle but in her last two games she failed to score in 26 minutes of action in losses to Minnesota and Phoenix. She did not play in today’s game against Chicago.

The Sun cut Ashley Walker who averaged 1.9 points and 2.3 rebounds in seven games for the Sun.
