Washington Mystics Resign Myisha Hines-Allen, & Shatori Walker-Kimbrough

The Washington Mystics have resigned forward Myisha Hines-Allen and guard Shatori Walker-Kimbrough. The team was determined to bring both players back for the 2022-23 season.

Hines-Allen has played 91 games for the Mystics while Walker-Kimbrough has appeared in 96 games for the team. Both players were drafted by the Mystics. Hines Allen was picked in the second round (19th overall) for the 2018 WNBA Draft, while Walker-Kimbrough was selected sixth overall in the 2017 WNBA Draft.

General Manager and head coach Mike Thibault commented on both player’s return:

“Re-signing Myisha was one of our major priorities this off-season. She has demonstrated the ability to be one of the high-level talents in the WNBA, as demonstrated by her breakout year in 2020. She is a factor as a ball-handling, multi-positional player, who can score inside and out, as well as rebound the ball. She is still a young player with a lot of potentially great years ahead of her. Myisha is committed to getting even better as she approaches the prime of her career. She can be a cornerstone for this team for a long time to come.”

 

“We look forward to the continued growth of Shatori’s game that she displayed upon her return to the Mystics last season. In addition, she has had an outstanding season in Israel this winter. She can be an integral part of our success because she has become a big contributor at both ends of the floor. I think she will play a key role this season. It’s great to have her back!” –  General Manager and Head Coach Mike Thibault

For Hines-Allen’s career she averages 8.3 PPG and 4.9 RPG, while Walker-Kimbrough averages 5.8 PPG, and 1.3 RPG.
