The Los Angeles Sparks waived three players Wednesday, including guard Te’a Cooper.
Cooper, 25, averaged 8.2 points in 51 games (16 starts) for the Sparks in two seasons. She made 13 of those starts in 2021, averaging 9.1 points.
Cooper was selected in the second round of the 2020 draft by the Phoenix Mercury but was waived six weeks later. She joined the Sparks in June.
The Sparks also waived guard Arella Guirantes and Kianna Smith. Guirantes averaged 3.2 points in 25 games (two starts) as a rookie in 2021. Smith was selected in the second round last month.
The Sparks open their season Friday at Chicago.
