On Monday, the Washington Mystics announced that they signed Megan Gustafson to an injury hardship contract.
Gustafson is entering her third WNBA season after spending the 2019 and 2020 seasons with the Dallas Wings, averaging 2.6 points and 2.2 rebounds per game in her career stateside.
Last season, Gustafson played for InvestInTheWest Enea Gorzoe Wielkopolski in Poland’s EBLK and Women’s EuroCup. In domestic competition, she led the team in scoring and rebounding with 20.0 points and 9.1 rebounds per game, respectively. She also produced similar numbers in continental play.
While Gustafson’s WNBA career hasn’t gone off to a great start, she was the Naismith and AP Player of the Year for the 2018-19 season when she played college basketball at Iowa. In her last college season, Gustafson averaged 27.8 points and 13.4 rebounds per game leading the Hawkeyes to the Elite Eight that season.
According to the Mystics’ release, Gustafson will be able to play for the Mystics’ next game tomorrow against the Seattle Storm. Tipoff is at 10 p.m. ET.
