Gray was traded to the Dream for the team’s 2023 No. earlier in the year to the Dallas Wings in exchange for a 2025 first round pick. In 2022, she had a career-best season with the Wings, averaging 13.3 points, 4.8 rebounds, and 2.5 assists per game. She now plays for the Dream.

Gray stated, “This is an amazing opportunity for me to call Atlanta home.” I haven’t even donned a Dream uniform yet, but this organization and its fan base have already been so welcoming to me. I’m excited to get started and grateful to be a part of what Tanisha and Dan are building here.

Gray, who was named WNBA Rookie of the Year in 2017, won a gold medal in the first Olympics 33 competition at the 2020 Summer Olympics in Tokyo. She was named the 2021 USA B-ball 3×3 Competitor of the Year subsequent to aiding lead the USA to their gold decoration and is currently 27-3 all-time addressing USA five-in five and 3×3 public groups.

General Manager Dan Padover stated, “This is a big win for our franchise, just as we stated when we first acquired Allisha.” Allisha’s down justifies itself and she will assume a significant part in our interest to turning into a competitor. We and Allisha can now relax knowing that this is not a temporary stay and that we are all in this together.”
