Sources: Sun sending '21 MVP Jonquel Jones to Liberty

2021 WNBA MVP Jonquel Jones is being traded from the Connecticut Sun to the New York Liberty in a deal that's expected to be finalized Sunday night, sources told ESPN, confirming multiple reports.

Jones, a four-time All-Star, requested the trade specifically to New York; she had one more year on her contract with the Sun, who recently brought in a new head coach in Stephanie White.

The Liberty are a burgeoning championship contender with Sabrina Ionescu leading the way. They have also historically tried to court two-time Finals MVP Breanna Stewart, who's a free agent this year.
