Tamika Raymond Leaves Connecticut Sun

Feather News

The Associated Press reported today that Connecticut Sun forward Tamika Raymond won't be returning to the basketball team this season. The WNBA Connecticut Sun basketball team is owned by the Mohegan Tribal Gaming Authority.

Raymond was acquired by the Sun last March but will be taking the year off to focus on her assistant coaching job at the University of Kansas. Raymond played in all of the Connecticut Sun's games last season.

The Connecticut Sun finished last season with a record of 21-13 before losing in the playoffs to the New York Liberty.

The Connecticut Sun's first game of the upcoming regular season is at the Mohegan Sun Arena on June 6th against the Washington Mystics.
