Las Vegas signs former All-Star guard Prince

The Las Vegas Aces have signed former All-Star guard Epiphanny Prince for the remainder of the season. The nine-year WNBA veteran last played for New York in 2018, averaging 8.4 points and 1.7 assists. For her career, she has averaged 13.3 points and 2.9 assists.

The Aces had a spot open on their roster and were looking for a veteran guard with postseason experience. Prince has played in 19 playoff games over five seasons and averaged 11.3 points and 2.3 assists in them. Prince, the former Rutgers standout who was originally drafted No. 4 in 2010 by the Chicago Sky, also has played previously for Aces coach Bill Laimbeer when they were both in New York with the Liberty.

"Piph was by far the best available player out there," Aces general manager Dan Padover said. "She can spread the floor, she takes care of the basketball and is an active defender who will hopefully bolster our depth out on the perimeter."

The Aces could use a boost, as they're coming off three consecutive losses. Las Vegas is 19-12 overall and in fourth place. If they can stay in the top four, they'll get a first-round bye in the playoffs and then host a single-elimination second-round game.

The Aces have three games left in the regular season: Saturday vs. Los Angeles, Sept. 5 at Atlanta, and Sept. 8 at Phoenix.
