The Atlanta Dream selected Brianna Turner with the 11th pick in the first round of the WNBA draft Wednesday night, but didn’t keep her rights for long.
After the conclusion of the draft, the Dream announced that they traded the rights to Turner to the Phoenix Mercury for the rights to Marie Gulich. She was the Mercury’s first-round pick last year, but is playing this season in Italy.
Gulich is a 6-foot-5 center from Germany who played at Oregon State and was the 12th player drafted in 2018.
Turner, a 6-foot-3 forward, finished her collegiate career for Notre Dame on Sunday in the NCAA women’s national-championship game against Baylor, which the Fighting Irish lost 82-81.
She finished her final season with 559 points and 305 rebounds, averaging 14.3 points this season.
