Sun make another trade with Lynx, acquire Griffin

The moves keep coming for the Sun.

Connecticut has traded its first-round pick next season and the 2011 second-round pick it acquired from Tulsa in Wednesday's trade to Minnesota in exchange for Kelsey Griffin, who the Lynx took with the No. 3 pick less than an hour ago.

Griffin, a First Team All-American, joins a frontcourt that includes Tina Charles, Asjha Jones, Sandrine Gruda, DeMya Walker and Tamika Whitmore. The departure of Chante Black to Tulsa (with Amber Holt) in Wednesday's trade appears to have cleared room for Griffin, though she'll have to battle for playing time from the start.

To recap, the Sun now own three of the top seven picks in this year's draft in Charles, Griffin and Danielle McCray, who will likely miss this entire upcoming season with a torn ACL.
