Sources: All-Star center Liz Cambage verbally commits to Los Angeles Sparks

Free-agent center Liz Cambage has verbally committed to play for the Los Angeles Sparks, sources told ESPN on Saturday night.

A four-time All-Star and one of the most marketable players in the WNBA, Cambage is expected to play a major role for the Sparks alongside forwardsNnekaand Chiney Ogwumike.


Cambage, 30, averaged 14.2 points, 8.2 rebounds and 1.6 blocks last season for the Las Vegas Aces.

Cambage has also played for the Australian Olympic team, winning bronze in 2012 and reaching the quarterfinals in 2016. She did not play in the 2020 Olympics, citing mental health reasons.


The Sparks made room to sign her by trading Erica Wheeler to the Atlanta Dream for Chennedy Carter this weekend.

Los Angeles also agreed to terms with free agent guard Jordin Canada on Saturday, sources told ESPN. The former UCLA star won two titles as a member of the Seattle Storm.
