Las Vegas (March 2, 2020)—Las Vegas Aces General Manager Dan Padover announced today that the Aces re-signed guard Lindsay Allen.
Allen is a two-year WNBA veteran who sat out the 2019 season recovering from a knee injury.
Originally drafted by the New York Liberty in the second round (number 14 overall) in the 2017 WNBA Draft, the Notre Dame graduate played in 28 games as a reserve for the Liberty during her rookie campaign, averaging 1.9 points, 2.2 assists and 1.5 rebounds.
After New York waived Allen late during training camp in 2018, the Aces signed her for their inaugural campaign, and she played in 24 games, including six starts. She saw all of her shooting percentages improve during her second season in the W, and she averaged 3.1 points, 2.9 rebounds and 1.3 assists.
For each of the past two WNBA “offseasons” the Maryland native has played for the Melbourne Boomers in Australia, leading them to the WNBL Semifinals in 2019 and 2020.
This season, Allen averaged 14.8 points, 4.8 assists and 3.4 rebounds while connecting on 48.4 percent of her field goal attempts, including 36.1 percent from long distance.
