Two-time Olympic Gold medalist and three-time WNBA champion Swin Cash announced that she will retire at the end of the 2016 season.
A consummate teammate and winner, Cash will spend her final season in New York as the Liberty look to build on its franchise-best 23 wins last season.
A television analyst for MSG Networks covering the Knicks and for CBS’s We Need To Talk, Cash will be providing her passion and knowledge of the game long after her playing days have ended.
She’ll also continue her advocacy for the WNBA, which is proudly celebrating its 20th season this year. As she writes in a Players’ Tribune essay:
While my playing career will soon be coming to an end, I will never be able to completely walk away. I care so much about whether the league will be around for another 20 years — and more. We had to fight to get where we are. We had to fight apathy.
We still fight apathy, but with trust that change will come.
We — the players — had to fight for the union, and fight to make it better. This is critical to our success. Many don’t understand but those are things we don’t get paid for.
