The Los Angeles Sparks announced a contract divorce Tuesday with four-time All-Star center Liz Cambage.
“It is with support that we share Liz Cambage’s decision to terminate her contract with the organization,” Sparks managing partner Eric Holoman said in a news release. “We want what’s best for Liz and have agreed to part ways amicably. The Sparks remain excited about our core group and are focused on our run towards a 2022 playoff berth.”
Cambage, 30, averaged 13.0 points, 6.4 rebounds and 2.1 assists in 25 games (24 starts) in her first season in L.A.
She posted 11 points, five rebounds, three blocks and two steals in 22 minutes Saturday as the Sparks (12-15) dropped an 84-66 decision at Las Vegas.
Cambage has career averages of 15.8 points, 7.5 rebounds and 1.6 blocks in 167 games (137 starts) with the Tulsa Shock (2011, 2013), Dallas Wings (2018), Aces (2019, 2021) and Sparks.
