Uncasville, CT (May 6, 2022) – Today, the Connecticut Sun announced that the team has finalized its opening day roster for the 2022 season.
The 2022 roster has seven returners from the 2021 season including reigning WNBA MVP, Jonquel Jones, 2021 WNBA Most Improved Player, Brionna Jones; and 2021 WNBA All-Star, DeWanna Bonner. 2021 All-Star, Courtney Williams also returns to the Sun after two years spent on the Atlanta Dream.
In addition to the powerhouses returning to the Sun for its 20th Anniversary season, newcomers Joyner Holmes, Nia Clouden and Yvonne Anderson look to add to the Connecticut Sun legacy.
The Sun take on the New York Liberty in their season-opener at Barclays Center in Brooklyn, New York on May 7 at 6:00 P.M. on ESPN. DeWanna Bonner and Courtney Williams will miss the game—the former, due to overseas commitments and the latter, due to a WNBA-mandated two-game suspension.
