The New York Liberty announced the signing Sunday of guard Crystal Dangerfield to a rest-of-season contract.

She will be available for Sunday night’s road game against the Los Angeles Sparks.

Dangerfield, 24, has averaged 5.0 points, 3.0 rebounds and 2.8 assists in 13 games (10 starts) since first joining the Liberty on May 21.

She was waived by the Minnesota Lynx on May 3 and signed with Indiana three days later. She played three games for the Fever, averaging 6.0 points and 3.3 assists before being released on May 11.

“Crystal has had quite the journey this year and is more than deserving of a rest-of-season contract,” Liberty general manager Jonathan Kolb said in a news release. “On and off the court, she has fit seamlessly into the Liberty culture and we look forward to continuing to build together.”

A second-round pick by Minnesota out of UConn in 2020, Dangerfield has career averages of 9.7 points, 3.1 assists and 2.1 rebounds in 68 games (39 starts). She was WNBA Rookie of the Year in 2020.
