The Sky signed former Baylor star Alexis Prince to a training-camp contract, a source told the Sun-Times on Saturday.

Prince, whom the Mercury picked 29th overall in 2017, has spent most of the last two seasons playing in Europe and hasn’t appeared in a WNBA game since 2018. In 20 games — 18 with the Mercury in 2017 and two with the Dream in 2018 — the 6’2 forward averaged 2.1 points and one rebound. S

She’s currently playing for Adana Basket of the Turkish Women’s Basketball League.

Prince, who is from Jacksonville, Florida, was highly recruited out of high school. She was the 16th-ranked prospect in the nation when she committed to Baylor in 2011. Over her four collegiate seasons, Prince averaged 8.1 points and four rebounds in 136 games.

With the addition of Prince, the Sky have 10 players signed for training camp, but could welcome in as many as 15. They’re expected to re-sign star point guard Courtney Vandersloot, who has verbally agreed to return, a source said, and they have the No. 8 pick in this year’s draft.

Training camp opens April 26.
