Former Terps guard Toliver traded by Sky to Sparks

The Los Angeles Sparks acquired the rights to combo guard Kristi Toliver (Maryland) from the Chicago Sky, giving up a second-round draft pick in 2011. Toliver, selected third overall by the Sky in last year's WNBA draft, averaged 7.6 points and 1.9 assists off the bench; she was second in the league in three-point shooting at 44.4 percent. "I am very happy about having Kristi join our team," Sparks coach Jennifer Gillom said. "We are adding a remarkable guard with a lot of versatility." Chicago's offseason addition of Epiphanny Prince, who starred at Rutgers before forgoing her senior year to play in Europe, made Toliver expendable.
