Five WNBA Athletes Join the Jordan Brand Family
Joining Asia Durr, Maya Moore, and Kia Nurse, the Jordan Brand family welcomes five new members — Jordin Canada, Te’a Cooper, Crystal Dangerfield, Dearica Hamby and Satou Sabally — who now comprise the largest women’s roster in the Jumpman’s history.
“Each of them has a bold, unique style on and off the court, with winning attributes that are rooted in the Jordan Brand’s DNA,” says Craig Williams, Jordan Brand President. “Through their play, they’ll push the boundaries of the game to new heights.”

The do-everything skill set that the 6’4” rookie brought to the Dallas Wings isn’t limited to her nightly box score. In addition to ending the 2020 season as one of only four rookies in WNBA history to average at least 13.8 points, 7.8 rebounds and 2.5 assists, Satou Sabally was the only rookie to serve on the 2020 WNBA Social Justice Council that led the sports world in mobilizing WNBA players around #SayHerName, education and collective action. “I am honored to be a part of a Brand that not only represents diverse culture in sport, but makes us family,” says Sabally
While winning the WNBA Sixth Woman of the Year for the second straight season, the 6’3” forward posted career highs in points, assists and steals per game, helping lead the Las Vegas Aces to the 2020 WNBA Finals. “In Jordan Brand, I get to be part of a bigger purpose with an elite group of players on every level,” Hamby says. “It means a lot to me that I get to represent for women who look like me.”
The first-year point guard led the Minnesota Lynx in scoring on her way to earning the 2020 WNBA Rookie of the Year. “I think ‘elite’ whenever I think of Jordan Brand, so joining the family is so special to me because everything the Brand stands for and represents inspires me to be the best version of myself,” says Dangerfield.
The third-year guard helped direct the floor for the Seattle Storm, which led the league in offensive and defensive rating on the way to a sweep in the 2020 WNBA Finals, the team’s second title in three seasons. “Being part of the Jordan Brand means representing greatness and a legacy through individuality and uniqueness,” says Canada.
The Jersey-born point guard quickly became a critical part of the veteran-led Los Angeles Sparks in her rookie season. Off-court, Cooper’s interests cover both modeling and fashion. “I was part of the first Jordan Brand Classic on the women’s side, so this means the world to me,” she says. “Michael Jordan is a living legend who believes in me — what more could I ask for?”
