The WNBA’s Atlanta Dream yesterday announced they’d acquired the rights to BallinEurope fave Team Hungary/MiZo Pécs guard Dalma Iványi from the San Antonio Silver Stars for center Michelle Snow.
Iványi is currently good for a line of 11.1 points, 3.8 rebounds and 5.7 assists per game in the Hungarian league; in 13 games’ worth of Euroleague Women play, she was good for 7.6 ppg and a sliver under 7.5 rpg. Iványi really crashed the sports headlines last week when she went for a triple-double of 24/11/10 against EL final four team Wisla Can-Pack.
MiZo Pécs is currently atop the Hungarian women’s league table at 19-1 and clinging to a one-game lead over fellow Euroleague Women contenders Szeviép-Szeged and MKB-Euroleasing Sopron.
Dalma played a stint in the WNBA with San Antonio previously in 2006 and has long been a mainstay on the international stage with Team Hungary.
And, on occasion of the transaction, here’s an awesome random single highlight from the good ol’ ‘Tube:
“Dalma is a scoring point guard who can shoot the three or penetrate and dish,” Dream GM/coach Marynell Meadors was quoted as stating in the Atlanta Journal-Constitution. “She has a great ability to get the ball to people where they can be successful.”
Tell you what, Dream front office folks: BiE doesn’t know what the nightlife is like in Atlanta, but any contract you draw up with Iványi might have to contain a clause forbidding attendance at cowboy-themed bars. That header Ms. Iványi took in a Salt Lake City bar might have been serious…
