N.Y. Locks up Ionescu with Extension Through ’25

The New York Liberty have signed Sabrina Ionescu to a contract extension that will keep her with the team through the 2025 season. This is a huge move for the Liberty as Ionescu, the number one overall pick in the 2020 WNBA Draft, has already made a name for herself as a rising star in the league.

Ionescu is a point guard out of Oregon who made an immediate impact on the Liberty in her rookie season, despite missing all but three games due to injury. In those three games, Ionescu averaged 18.3 points, 4.7 rebounds and 4.0 assists per game.

This extension shows that the Liberty have faith in Ionescu’s ability to lead the team to success in the future. In a press release, Liberty CEO and Governor Joe Tsai said, “Sabrina is a generational talent whose drive and competitive spirit elevate everyone around her. She’s an exceptional leader, a masterful floor general, and a fierce competitor who always puts winning first. We look forward to Sabrina continuing her amazing career with the Liberty.”

Ionescu has also made an impact off the court, becoming a vocal advocate for social justice and supporting the Black Lives Matter movement. She has used her platform as a professional athlete to speak out on issues that matter to her and inspire others to do the same.

With Ionescu leading the way, the Liberty are hoping to make a run at the WNBA title in the coming seasons. The team finished with a 2-20 record in the 2020 season, but with Ionescu healthy and a full offseason to build chemistry with her teammates, the Liberty are poised to turn things around in 2021 and beyond.

What This Means for the Liberty

The Liberty are obviously thrilled to have Ionescu locked up for the long term. She is a once-in-a-generation talent who has the potential to become one of the best players in the history of the league.

With Ionescu leading the way, the Liberty should be a competitive team for many years to come. They will need to continue to build around her, but with the right pieces in place, this team has the potential to make multiple runs at the WNBA title.

This extension also has an impact on the rest of the league. Ionescu is one of the most marketable players in the WNBA, and having her locked up with the Liberty for the long term is a win for the league as a whole. It shows that even small-market teams like the Liberty can attract and retain top talent if they are willing to invest in their players.

Overall, this is a great move for the Liberty and for women’s basketball as a whole. Ionescu is a special player who has the potential to elevate the sport to new heights, and having her locked up with the Liberty is a huge win for everyone involved.
