Sparks trade Marina Mabrey to Wings for 2021 second-rounder

The Los Angeles Sparks traded guard Marina Mabrey to the Dallas Wings for a 2021 second-round pick, the teams announced Friday.

The Sparks also waived Alexis Jones, who was picked up by the Atlanta Dream.

Mabrey appeared in 31 games during her rookie season for the Sparks, averaging 4 points, 1.2 rebounds and 1 assist per game.

The Sparks needed roster flexibility after signing two-time WNBA champion Kristi Toliver from the Washington Mystics and four-time WNBA champion Seimone Augustus from the Minnesota Lynx. They also acquired guard Brittney Sykes and center Marie G├╝lich in a trade with the Dream.
