Krauskopf Statement on Zellous’ Departure

Fever President and GM Kelly Krauskopf, on the departure of Shavonte Zellous:

“I want to thank Shavonte for six terrific seasons here in Indiana. Going into free agency this year, my first goal and priority was to re-sign our free agents who were part of our team that went all the way to Game 5 of the WNBA Finals. I knew this would be difficult with our salary cap situation going into 2016, as we were already at risk of losing a player due to potentially better offers coming in. Rightly so, Shavonte had lots of offers, including ours, and I know she had to do what was best for her. I am thankful to her for all she did for us both on and off the court. Without a doubt, she was an integral part of all of our team’s success and most notably her part in winning the title in 2012. I wish her the best and thank her for being such a great member of the Indiana Fever franchise.”
