Per USA Today report – The Atlanta Dream have waived rookie guard Inga Orekhova. Orekhova was waived to make room for point guard Celine Dumerc, who was on the team’s suspended list as she completed her obligations to her French Club team.

Orekhova, the highest draft pick in USF WBB history (2nd round, 18th overall), had appeared in just 2 games totaling 14 minutes of playing time. She was 0 for 5 shooting (0 for 3 from 3-point range) and had 2 blocks and 1 rebound.

I wish Inga the best moving forward and hope she can land with a team, whether its here in the US or in Europe. She was a terrific shooter during her time with the Bulls (1072 career points) and a joy to watch burn up the nets from long range.
