Guard Natisha Hiedeman will return to the Connecticut Sun for a fourth season in 2022.

Head coach and general manager Curt Miller announced Monday that Hiedeman accepted the team’s qualifying offer. No terms were disclosed.

“We are excited about the re-signing of Natisha Hiedeman,” Miller said. “Natisha is coming off a career year and has been an important offensive spark plug for us off the bench. She can facilitate and score, but her value extends beyond the court as she is an excellent teammate. Her future with the Sun is bright.”

Hiedeman, 24, appeared in all 32 games (five starts) in 2021 and averaged 7.6 points, 1.9 rebounds and 1.9 assists.

She has averaged 6.1 points, 1.9 assists and 1.8 rebounds and is a career 39.5 percent shooter from 3-point range in 74 games (nine starts) with the Sun.
