2021 WNBA MVP Jonquel Jones excited to be in New York

NEW YORK (AP) — After spending her entire career in Connecticut, Jonquel Jones was ready for a change. So she looked around and decided that New York would be the right place for her. The 2021 MVP was introduced by the Liberty at a press conference Friday a few days after the team traded for her as part of a three-team deal with the Connecticut Sun and Dallas Wings. Jones said she saw a shift in the culture of the Liberty franchise last year and wanted to be a part of their “high-octane basketball.”
