Longtime Mystic Tianna Hawkins signs with Atlanta Dream originally appeared on NBC Sports Washington
Longtime Washington Mystics forward Tianna Hawkins is officially leaving the nation's capital, as the Atlanta Dream have announced her addition in free agency.
Hawkins and the Dream agreed to a two-year deal, though the contract details were not released. Hawkins was drafted out of the University of Maryland in 2013 by Seattle, and then played in Washington from 2014-2020.
She averaged 8.5 points per game and 3.5 rebounds per game in 2020.
Hawkins helped the Mystics win the 2019 WNBA Championship, and she followed up her performance with a career-high in minutes per game in 2020. The forward will turn 30 years old next month, and she now joins a team that finished 7-15 last season.
