The Minnesota Lynx and five-time WNBA All-Star Angel McCoughtry agreed to a contract buyout on Thursday.

“On behalf of the Lynx organization and players, I want to thank Angel for her belief in the Minnesota Lynx when she chose us in free agency,” Lynx head coach and general manager Cheryl Reeve said in a statement. “Angel is one of the all-time greats in the WNBA and we wish her the very best."

McCoughtry, 35, signed with Minnesota as an unrestricted free agent in February. The forward contributed 12 points, six rebounds, two assists, two blocks and one steal in about 20 minutes of play for the Lynx this season.

"Minnesota is a great organization and a class act. Thank you to Cheryl Reeve, the coaching staff and my teammates for the opportunity to come to Minnesota," McCoughtry said via Twitter. "Although the organization has been very patient with my injury and helping me heal my body, sometimes it’s about what fits best for both parties. I believe in myself and I know I will be all the way back to perform at the highest level. To my fans, thanks for your support during this time. It’s because of your support that I’ll be back and ready to give the game all I got.”

The two-time Olympic gold-medalist was out the entire 2021 season for the Aces after suffering a right knee injury during a preseason game against the Sparks. She was later diagnosed with a torn ACL and meniscus.
