Utah Gets 14th Overall Pick From NY
By THE ASSOCIATED PRESS
SALT LAKE CITY (AP) -- The Utah Starzz acquired another first-round WNBA
draft choice Thursday, trading Croatian guard Korie Hlede to the New
York Liberty for the 14th overall selection.
The move should open additional playing time for Marie Ferdinand, the
sharp-shooting player Utah took in last year's draft.
``We feel like this is a win-win situation,'' Starzz coach Candi Harvey
said. ``They receive a veteran player and we feel like we will get a
good player with the 14th pick, a player we think we can develop.''
Hlede averaged 8.4 and 2.4 assists during three seasons in Utah. She
played for Detroit in 1999.
