The Philadelphia native averaged 14.8 points and 4.2 points during the WNBA regular season, but Copper stepped it up to another level come playoff time. The first-time All-Star put up 17.7 points per contest while grabbing 5.3 rebounds. Alongside Candace Parker, she helped the Sky win it all for the first time in franchise history.
Copper was drafted seventh overall in the 2016 WNBA Draft by the Washington Mystics, but spent just one season in DC before taking her talents to Chicago. The former Rutgers standout has seen her numbers absolutely skyrocket since joining the Sky too, averaging a mere 6.7 points in 2017. Now, she's one of the most important players on this roster. Talk about a big jump in production.
The WNBA Finals MVP is currently hooping in the Euroleague in Spain and has already lit the league on fire. She's already recorded numerous 30+ point games during her time overseas. She signed with Perfumerias Avenida in mid-November and has been one of their most consistent players, erupting for 24 in her debut for the team.
Needless to say, she'll be coming back to the Sky ready to wreak havoc again.
