The Atlanta Dream announced Monday the signing of forward Jessica Breland to multi-year contract.
Breland is the second signing for the Dream in the past week after the team announced the signing of two-time WNBA Champion Renee Montgomery on Thursday.
“Jessica is a huge get for us,” Dream coach Nikki Collen said in a statement. “It was a hard decision for her to leave a place that was comfortable for her and take a chance on the Dream and me, but I am incredibly thankful for the chance to coach her. I believe she is a perfect fit for our up-tempo system. I can’t wait to see her in a Dream uniform.”
A former second round pick in the 2011 WNBA Draft out of North Carolina, Breland spent the past four seasons with the Chicago Sky where she was named an All-Star in 2014. Breland also had stints with the New York Liberty, Connecticut Sun and Indiana Fever.
Last season, her sixth in the WNBA, Breland averaged 9.5 points, 6.3 rebounds and 1.2 assists with the Sky.
“I want to thank the Chicago Sky for some incredible memories,” Breland said in a statement. “I am looking forward to creating memories and experiences with the Atlanta Dream. I am excited to take this next step in my career with coach Nicki and my new teammates.”
