The four-team trade that would send Diamond DeShields to the Dallas Wings, Marina Mabrey to Chicago Sky, and Michaela Onyenwere to the Phoenix Mercury is official. Phoenix will also receive a 2024 3rd Round Pick from Chicago & 2025 2nd Round Pick from Chicago.

Last season with the Mercury, DeShields averaged 13.1 points and 3.8 rebounds per game. She won a WNBA championship in 2021 with the Chicago Sky and made the All-Star team in 2019. DesShields has scored 13.2 points, 4.2 rebounds, and 2,2 assists per game in her five-year career.

Onyenwere will enter her third season in the WNBA; last year, she averaged 4.7 points for the New York Liberty. In 2021, Onyenwere scored 8.6 points per game and won the WNBA Rookie of the Year award. She is athletic and could be a nice depth piece for the Mercury.
