Tahnee Robinson - Shoshone
UNCASVILLE, CONNECTICUT - On Wednesday the Connecticut Sun announced that Adrienne Johson, Rachele Fitz, and Tahnee Robinson had been waived.
Tahnee Robinson became the first Native American Indian to be drafted in the WNBA when she was selected with the 31st pick by the Phoenix Mercury. They turned around and dealt her to the Connecticut Sun for a third round pick in 2012. Tahnee played 8 minutes and notched 5 points in a preseason game against the Chinese Nation team.
The moves were made to get the Sun closer to the 11 players they are allowed to keep on their roster. With only 132 spots on teams in the WNBA for players this is by no means the end of the road for Tahnee Robinson in woman’s professional basketball. There are more opportunities in Europe where she can gain more experience. Europe has been the path for both men and women in professional basketball. And hopefully we will see her back in a WNBA uniform soon.
