AUBURN HILLS, Mich. -- Former Michigan State star Kristin Haynie has signed with the Detroit Shock, adding some perimeter depth to the WNBA champions.

Haynie averaged 2.8 points and 2.5 assists last season for the Atlanta Dream. She played for the Sacramento Monarchs for three years before that, and has averaged 3.5 points and 2.0 assists in her career.

The Shock announced the signing Wednesday.

Haynie led the Spartans to the 2005 NCAA final, then was picked ninth overall in the WNBA draft. She holds school records with 574 assists and 346 points, and was the fourth player in Big Ten history with at least 1,000 points, 500 rebounds, 500 assists and 300 steals.
