Kelly Plum has agreed to a two-year contract extension with the Las Vegas Aces, WNBA All-Star MVP, and 2021 Olympic gold medalist.
Plum, a former University of Washington star, said in a statement, “I’m pleased to remain with the Aces and continue playing alongside my teammates and for our coaching staff. In order to bring a championship to Las Vegas, “I’m looking forward to continuing our quest.”
Plum had 14 of her 22 points in the second half, Chelsea Gray had 21 points and nine assists to tie her season highs, and the Aces beat the Sun 91-83 on Sunday in a WNBA showdown between two elite squads.
At 18-7, Las Vegas is tied for second place in the league, one game behind champions Chicago Sky. After a 4-5 run in their previous nine games, Connecticut (16-9) has fallen one game behind the Seattle Storm (17-8) in fourth place.
