Fever awarded waiver claim for G Jazmine Jones

The Indiana Fever announced today the team was awarded guard Jazmine Jones on a waiver claim.

“This is a great opportunity for us bring in a young player like Jazmine who has shown a lot of potential early in her career. She is a very versatile perimeter player who will increase the level of competitiveness in our training camp,” Fever Head Coach Marianne Stanley said.
