Shock trade for ex-Stanford stars Wiggins, Powell
TULSA, Okla. (AP) - The Tulsa Shock acquired two former All-Americans from Stanford on Friday, picking up guard Candice Wiggins in a trade with the Minnesota Lynx and forward Nicole Powell in a deal with the New York Liberty.
Tulsa sent a 2014 second-round draft pick to Minnesota for Wiggins. The Liberty received second- and third-round picks in this year's draft plus the rights to veteran Deanna Nolan, who refused to continue playing for the Shock after the team relocated from Detroit to Tulsa.
Nolan hasn't played in the WNBA since 2009.
The Shock also received New York's third-round pick in the 2013 draft.
