Atlanta Dream guard Chennedy Carter, was among, Minnesota Lynx Crystal Dangerfield, Dallas Wings Satou Sabally, Indiana Fever Julie Allemand, and New York Liberty Jazmine Jones who was named to the 2020 WNBA All-Rookie Team, the league announced today.

21, Carter, missed six games due to an ankle injury, but led the team in points per game with 17.4, a new franchise record by a rookie. Carter also became the youngest player in WNBA history to score at least 30 points in a game when she poured in 35 points against Seattle on August 6, setting the record for the most points scored in a single game by a Dream rookie.

Selected with the No. 4 overall pick in the 2020 WNBA Draft, Carter was the Dream’s highest draft pick since Angel McCoughtry went to Atlanta with the No. 1 overall pick in 2009.

The Dream will make their long-awaited debut in 2021 at Gateway Center Arena in College Park, on Atlanta’s Southside.
