Azurá Stevens says farewell to Chicago, signs with Los Angeles

1 year agoKarli Bell

The 2021 Chicago Sky Championship core has now dispersed after center Azurá Stevens announced she is leaving Chicago and pursuing a new team in free agency on her Twitter on Thursday.

Stevens played a key role off the bench, averaging 10.6 points, 3.9 rebounds and 1.1 blocks per game during the 2022 regular season. 

After coming to Chicago in 2020, Stevens proved to be a vital sixth woman in the first season, averaging career highs across the board in points, rebounds, blocks and shooting percentage from the free throw line, arc and floor.

She is set to sign with the Los Angeles Sparks, according to reports.

Stevens is the fourth free agent to leave the Chicago Sky with all eyes on general manager and head coach James Wade on what he does next.

Emma Meesseman is the lone free agent left from the 2022 Sky team for Wade to resign. Candace Parker, Allie Quigley and Courtney Vandersloot have all parted from Chicago.
