The Las Vegas Aces have officially re-signed superstar Liz Cambage as announced by the team today.
The news does not come as a major surprise as this was the move we all anticipated for the franchise and three-time WNBA All-Star. It will be next year prior to the 2021 season we could see another big move by the superstar. But for now, Cambage is back and it is just the news we needed right now!

"Last year, the Aces and Liz took a chance on one another and it worked out better than we both could have imagined," said Las Vegas Aces President of Basketball Operations and Head Coach Bill Laimbeer. "Liz continues to be one of the marquee players in the world and we are excited to have her back in an Aces uniform as we continue our quest for a championship."
Cambage was traded to the Aces after she demanded a trade from the Dallas Wings prior to the 2019 season. She was officially acquired in May of 2019. The six-foot-eight center has taken the WNBA by storm during her time in the league and has become a household name for basketball fans across the world.
"Last season was special, one where I fell in love with this team, my teammates, Las Vegas and everyone at the Aces and MGM who help make us feel like one big family," said Cambage per release. "I am lucky to be a part of this amazing organization and I am so excited to continue my journey here. I can't wait to get back to Vegas and feel the love and support from the best fans in the WNBA."
Last season the superstar earned her third All-Star selection to go along with All-WNBA Second Team honors. She averaged 16 points, 8.2 rebounds and 1.6 blocks per game in her first season with Las Vegas. Once playoff time hit, she upped her production to average 23.6 points, 11.4 rebounds and 1.8 blocks per game.
The WNBA has yet to announce a timeframe for training camp and a start of the 2020 season.
