Sun trade F/C Elizabeth Williams to Dream for No. 4 draft pick

ATLANTA -- Second-year forward-center Elizabeth Williams has been traded from the Connecticut Sun to the Atlanta Dream.

Atlanta traded rights to the No. 4 pick in the 2016 WNBA draft to Connecticut.

Williams, a former four-time All-American at Duke, was the No. 4 overall pick in the 2015 draft. She averaged 3.3 points and 3.2 rebounds as a rookie.

Dream coach Michael Cooper says Williams, who is 6-foot-3, will give the team "a defensive-minded center" and "additional toughness" the team lacked last season.
