Liberty trade for All-Star guard Shoni Schimmel

NEW YORK (AP) The New York Liberty acquired All-Star point guard Shoni Schimmel from the Atlanta Dream for a 2017 second-round draft pick, the team announced Monday.

Schimmel, the eighth pick in the 2014 draft, has made the All-Star team in each of her first two seasons in the WNBA. She's averaged 8.0 points, 3.4 assists and 1.5 3-pointers.

"Shoni Schimmel has demonstrated she can shine on a big stage, and I am confident that with the leadership on our coaching staff and on our team she will thrive as a member of the New York Liberty playing at Madison Square Garden," Liberty team president Isiah Thomas said.
