Stars to sign French guard Valeriane Ayayi


According to Jeremy Medjana, the San Antonio Stars will sign French guard Valeriane Ayayi for the remainder of the regular season.

Ayayi was eligible for the WNBA Draft last season, but went undrafted.

The 21-year-old spent last season with Lattes Montpellier in the French league, averaging 12.3 points and 6.3 rebounds. In the EuroLeague Women, she averaged 2.8 points and 4.8 rebounds.

San Antonio is no stranger to French point guards. Tony Parker joined the Spurs when he was 19-years-old and former Star Edwige Lawson-Wade played in the Alamo City and is married to current Stars assistant coach James Wade. The silver and black also own the rights to Diandra Tchatchouang.

The Stars are currently 5-11 on the season and will return to the court on Wednesday when they welcome the Atlanta Dream to the Freeman Coliseum at 7 p.m.
