Dallas Wings Team History & International Alumni

The Dallas Wings, established in 1998 as the Detroit Shock before relocating to Tulsa in 2010 and then finally landing in Dallas in 2016, have carved out a notable niche in the WNBA landscape with their tradition of embracing international talent. Since their inception, the Wings have consistently sought out players from across the globe, enriching their roster with diverse skill sets and cultural influences. This commitment to international recruitment has not only diversified their team composition but also enhanced their competitiveness on the court.

One of the most prominent examples of the Dallas Wings’ dedication to international players is the acquisition of Satou Sabally from Germany in the 2020 WNBA Draft. Sabally, a versatile forward known for her scoring ability and defensive prowess, quickly made her mark in the league. In her rookie season, she averaged an impressive 13.9 points and 7.8 rebounds per game, earning her a spot on the All-Rookie Team. Sabally’s impact extends beyond individual statistics, as her presence on the court elevates the team’s performance and contributes to the Wings’ strategic depth.

Another standout international player in the Wings’ history is Isabelle Harrison, hailing from Australia. Harrison, a skilled center known for her tenacity in the paint and ability to protect the rim, has been a vital asset for the team since joining in 2019. In the 2021 season, she showcased her defensive prowess by averaging 1.2 blocks per game, providing crucial rim protection for the Wings. Harrison’s contributions underscore the team’s commitment to fostering a global identity and leveraging talent from diverse backgrounds to achieve success in the WNBA.
