Fever sign Hamson to rest-of-season contract

INDIANAPOLIS – The Indiana Fever have signed 6-foot-7 center Jennifer Hamson to a rest-of-season contract, as announced by president and general manager Kelly Krauskopf.

Hamson, signed July 9 to the first of three 7-day contracts, has been signed to complete the 2017 season with the Fever. In just under 10 minutes per game, Hamson has averaged 4.0 points, 3.0 rebounds and 1.2 blocks during five games last month.
