Storm sign Hassell

The Seattle Storm announced they have signed Jasmine Hassell on Friday.

Hassell replaces Nakia Sanford on the roster after Sanford asked to be released from her 7-day contract with the team.

Hassell was drafted by the Indiana Fever with the 21st overall selection (second round) of the 2013 WNBA draft. Hassell appeared in 12 games for the Fever, averaging 1.8 points and 1.3 rebounds per game.

"Jasmine is an athletic and mobile post player that we anticipate will fit our system well," Storm head coach and general manager Brian Agler said in a press release provided by the team. "She has proven that she can be a competitive player in the WNBA. We are looking forward to adding Jasmine to our roster and working with her.

Hassell played her college ball at the University of Georgia where she was voted to the All-SEC first team as a senior. She helped lead the Bulldogs to a 28-7 record and an Elite Eight appearance in the NCAA tournament earlier this year.

"I am excited and honored for another opportunity to play for a great franchise and organization," Hassell said. "I look forward to doing all I can to help make this team better and can't wait to put on the Storm jersey."
