Phoenix Mercury Acquire Skylar Diggins-Smith in Sign-and-Trade Deal

The Phoenix Mercury have acquired Skylar Diggins-Smith from the Dallas Wings in a sign and trade deal, the team announced Wednesday. The Wings are receiving the No. 5 and 7 picks in the 2020 WNBA draft and a future first-round pick.

A four-time All-Star, Diggins-Smith is likely to sign a four-year supermax deal with Phoenix, according to The Winsidr's Rachel Galligan.

Diggins-Smith joins nine-time all Star Diana Taurasi and six-time All-Star Brittney Griner with the Mercury. Both Diggins-Smith and Griner were selected in the top three picks of the 2013 WNBA Draft.

In January, Diggins-Smith expressed her wishes to leave the Wings.
