Destanni Henderson, Dream Agree to a 7-Day Contract

Destanni Henderson is returning to the  Atlanta Dream on a 7-day hardship contract after having a brief stint with the club a couple of months ago, as announced by the team on Friday.

Henderson’s career started when she was picked 20th overall by the Indiana Fever in the 2022 draft. During her time with the Fever, she played in 36 games, averaging 5.3 points per game and shooting 36.6% from three-point range.

After being released in May 2023, she briefly joined the Los Angeles Sparks on a hardship contract and later had a short stint with the Phoenix Mercury under similar terms.

Henderson also played overseas; in June 2023, she signed with Antalya BSB Toroslar BC in Turkey’s Women’s Basketball Super League (KBSL) and participated in the EuroCup.

In college, Henderson had an impressive career at the University of South Carolina, where she helped secure a national championship. In her senior year, she averaged 11.5 points, 3.9 assists, and 3.1 rebounds per game, earning First Team All-SEC and Third Team All-American honors.

A 7-day hardship contract in the WNBA allows teams to temporarily sign players to fill roster spots when they have fewer than 10 available players due to injuries or other extenuating circumstances. This contract lasts for seven days, after which the team can either extend another hardship contract to the player or release them if the roster situation improves.
