The Atlanta Dream acquired three-time All-Star Danielle Robinson from the Indiana Fever in exchange for fellow guard Kristy Wallace.

Robinson, 33, is an 11-year veteran and a three-time WNBA All-Defensive Team selection.

She averaged 7.4 points, 3.8 assists and 2.9 rebounds in 31 games (30 starts) with the Fever in 2022.

“Danielle’s skill set, competitiveness, and basketball IQ will prove her to be a great addition to our team. Her game speaks for itself, and we know she will continue to bring the same energy to the floor that she has brought throughout her entire professional career,” Dream general manager Dan Padover said in a news release Friday.

“Danielle is the exact type of professional we want to bring into this organization, her leadership and experience will be a huge asset for our young talent as they continue to grow into the future of the Dream.”

Robinson ranks 13th in league history with 1,376 career assists. She has career averages of 9.1 points, 4.2 assists and 2.8 rebounds in 327 games (243 starts) with San Antonio (2011-15), Phoenix (2017), Minnesota (2018-19), Las Vegas (2020) and Indiana.

Wallace, 27, made her WNBA debut last season and averaged 6.6 points, 2.3 rebounds and 2.2 assists in 29 games.

The Dream originally drafted the Australia native in the second round in 2018.
