The Dallas Wings officially announced the signing of free agent forward Emma Cannon. 

Wings President and CEO Greg Bibb said “We are excited to welcome Emma to the Dallas Wings organization, Emma is a versatile veteran who will bring leadership and grit to our team. She is currently enjoying one of her finest professional campaigns while playing in Turkey and I’m eager to see her competing in a Wings uniform this summer.”

This winter in Turkey, Cannon is averaging an astounding 19.1 points, 9.8 rebounds, and 2.0 assists per game. Success overseas isn’t a new thing for Cannon who has been on multiple championship-winning teams, including the 2022 and 2023 Israeli League winners Elitzur Ramla and three-time DBBL winners Wasserburg (2013-15).

In her latest WNBA stop with the Indiana Feaver last season, Cannon put up over 5 points and 3 rebounds in 30 games. 

Upon signing with the Wings Cannon said “My family and I are thrilled to be joining the Dallas Wings franchise, This is a place where the possibilities are endless and I’m happy to be a part of it. I can’t wait to connect with my teammates, staff, and the amazing Dallas fans. See you soon! Let’s go Wings!”

Cannon will likely be playing a bench role for the Wings this season and will pick up some of the minutes left behind by Awak Kuier who opted out of the 2024 WNBA Season. 

Dallas Wings Head Coach Latricia Trammell said “We are excited to announce the signing of Emma Cannon, Her experience, versatility, and commitment to excellence align perfectly with our organization’s goals. Emma’s presence will positively elevate our team on and off the court.”

Emma Cannon was born in Rochester New York before heading Flordia where she played college ball at both UCF and Florida Southern. In her final season with the Knights  Cannon earned C-USA Tournament MVP honors before leading the Knights to the NCAA Tournament.
