Candace Parker, two-time WNBA MVP, announces retirement



Women's basketball legend Candace Parker announced her retirement on social media Sunday.

"I promised I'd never cheat the game & that I'd leave it in a better place than I came into it," Parker posted to Instagram. "The competitor in me always wants 1 more, but it's time. My HEART & body knew, but I needed to give my mind time to accept it."

Parker was sidelined with a foot injury for most of the 2023 campaign -- her first with the Las Vegas Aces. She appeared in her final game on July 7.
