Dream fill out roster ahead of 2020 WNBA season 

Free agents Betnijah Laney and Jaylyn Agnew signed with the Dream, the team announced Wednesday. 

The Dream had roster spots open with guards Tiffany Hayes and Renee Montgomery opting to sit out the 2020 season. The roster will now feature only two returning players — Elizabeth Williams and Monique Billings — and 10 newcomers led by guard Courtney Williams and No. 4 overall draft pick Chennedy Carter

The Dream, who last won a conference title in 2013, will play a 22-game schedule at IMG Academy in Bradenton, Fla., beginning in late July.

Laney, a 6-0 guard, played for the Indiana Fever in 2019, averaging 5.6 points and 4.2 rebounds in 26 minutes per game and starting in 27 of 34 contests. The four-year WNBA veteran — drafted by the Chicago Sky 17th overall in 2015 — has career averages of 3.6 points and 2.6 rebounds over 103 career games. 

A 5-11 forward out of Creighton, Agnew was named the 2020 Big East Player of the Year as a senior. She averaged 20.8 points (543 total) in her last season with the Bluejays, tallying 13 20-point games with a league-best four 30-point outings. She claimed the Big East scoring title with the highest average (23.1) since former Dream forward Angel McCoughtry’s 26.6 points per game with Louisville in 2008-09.
