LAS VEGAS (KTNV) — Las Vegas Aces President of Basketball Operations and Head Coach Bill Laimbeer announced today that the team has acquired two-time All-Star, and 2018 league MVP runner up Liz Cambage from the Dallas Wings.

The 6-8 center led the league in scoring (23.0 ppg) and was second in rebounding (9.7) in 2018.

She also finished fourth in the WNBA in field goal percentage (58.9%) and fifth in blocked shots (1.7), while setting the league record for points in a game when she poured in 53 against the New York Liberty on July 17.

In exchange, the Wings receive point guard Moriah Jefferson, forward Isabelle Harrison, and the Aces first and. second round draft picks in 2020.

"The trade has finally happened, and the journey it took to get here will make a great story one day," Laimbeer said with a smile.

"Everyone in the Aces family is excited to welcome Liz to Las Vegas. She brings an attitude and physical presence that we need. There is no doubt about her physical ability, but what we respect most about her is her basketball IQ. That is what we are about."
