"I am so happy to be signed back with Chicago," Quigley said following the announcement. "Last year was my most enjoyable season in the WNBA and I know we are going to build off of that and be even better. I am so thankful to be playing in front of my family and the best fans in the WNBA. I don't ever take that for granted. I am also so excited to be back with my teammates, they are like sisters now."
"We are very excited to have Allie back in the fold," said Chicago Sky head coach and General Manager James Wade. "She is one of the best stories of Chicago basketball. Someone that came in the league and had to work her way up, found a home with her local team and ends up a three-time WNBA All-Star. She is a very important piece to our success on the floor and off of it."
Quigley earned WNBA Sixth Woman of the Year honors back-to-back in 2014 and 2015. In 2018 she repeated as All-Star Game Three-Point Contest winner after setting a new all-time record for most points scored between men and women with 29 points. The Joliet, Illinois native was originally drafted as the No. 22 overall pick in the 2008 WNBA draft by the Phoenix Mercury.
