BROOKLYN -- The New York Liberty announced Monday that the team has signed free agent Layshia Clarendon. Per team policy, the terms of the agreement were not disclosed.

Clarendon joins the Liberty after one season with the Connecticut Sun where she averaged 6.2 PPG, 2.4 RPG and 2.1 APG.

"Layshia is an elite facilitator and floor general with an extremely high basketball IQ," said Liberty head coach Walt Hopkins. "She not only leads vocally, but also by consistently modeling a tireless work ethic and respect for those around her. She is going to be a massive boon to our roster and our team culture -- both on, and off of the court."
