Atlanta Dream sign seven-time All-Star Candice Dupree to deal

The Atlanta Dream have signed veteran Candice Dupree, the team announced Monday.

The seven-time WNBA All-Star was most recently playing for the Seattle Storm, who waived her in early July.

Dupree is the only active player with more than 6,800 points and 3,000 rebounds. Tina Thompson and Tamika Catchings are the other two players to have reached those milestones.

Dupree, a 16-year veteran, was drafted in 2006. During her career, Dupree has averaged 14.1 points and 6.4 rebounds per game. She has started in at least 31 games in 13 of the last 15 seasons.

"I'm excited to be reunited with Candice after coaching her in college at Temple University," interim head coach Darius Taylor said in a statement. "Candice brings championship experience, professionalism and a great basketball IQ to our team. She will add scoring, depth and stability to our post play. We are excited to welcome future Hall-of-Famer Candice to the Atlanta Dream."

In 2014, Dupree helped lead the Phoenix Mercury to a WNBA championship, averaging 16.4 points per game in the playoffs.

At 6-13, the Dream are 10th in the WNBA standings and were on a four-game losing streak before heading into the Olympic break.
