Connecticut Sun waives former UNC star Breland
UNCASVILLE, Conn. — The Connecticut Sun has trimmed its pre-season roster to 13 players by cutting two players, including former North Carolina star Jessica Breland.
The 6-foot-3 Breland was picked up by the Sun last July after being waived by New York, but saw action in just one game.
Breland was the first pick in the second round of the 2011 draft, despite having to sit out a year in college while undergoing treatment for Hodgkin's lymphoma. She returned for her senior season, before being drafted last year by Minnesota and then dealt to New York.
She had six points in the Sun's preseason win over the Liberty on Monday.
The Sun also cut Stefanie Murphy, who came to camp as an undrafted free agent.
