Isabelle Harrison of the Dallas Wings and Dana Evans are the other two recent Jordan Brand signees. Evans is the first NBA or WNBA player that has won a championship in Chicago to sign with the brand since Jordan himself.
“I was always a sneakerhead, and now understanding that Jordans are a symbol of excellence and being a part of the Jordan Brand Family is everything I thought it would be and more,” Evans said.
Howard will make her professional debut on May 7, when the Dream takes on the Wings in College Park Center.
