INDIANAPOLIS – The Indiana Fever have announced the return of reserve guard Jeanette Pohlen, a shooting specialist and veteran of the Fever system including WNBA Finals appearances in 2012 and 2015.
Pohlen’s return to the Fever is effective July 6 per available salary cap space, when the Fever begin a three-game West Coast trip at Los Angeles. A roster spot was made available when rookie guard Brene Moseley was waived June 20.
Waived at the end of training camp in May, Pohlen returns to the franchise for whom she has played since 2011. Pohlen is a four-year WNBA veteran and a member of Indiana’s championship team of 2012. Drafted by the Fever No. 9 overall in 2011, she became the first rookie in league history to lead the WNBA in 3-point shooting percentage.
In fact, she owns a career shooting percentage of 42.8 percent and her 42.5 percent clip from 3-point range ranks second in Fever history. Pohlen has averaged 3.7 points and 1.4 rebounds through 107 regular season games with Indiana. She has made appearances in 20 playoff games with the Fever.
