The Seattle Storm acquired former WNBA All-Star forward Crystal Langhorne Monday in a draft night trade. Seattle shipped their first round draft pick Bria Hartley out of Connecticut and second-year forward Tianna Hawkins to the Washington Mystics in the deal.

Langhorne, the 6th year pro out of Maryland, averaged 12 points and 7.2 rebounds per game game last season. She was a WNBA All-Star in 2010 and 2011.

Hartley, the 7th pick overall, helped the UConn to Final Four berths and NCAA titles in 2013 and 2014. The 5-foot 8-inch guard averaged 16.1 points per games her senior season.

Hawkins played in 33 games for the storm last season, averaging 3.4 points per game.

With their other picks in the WNBA Draft Seattle selected Utah forward Michelle Plouffe, a Pac-12 All-Conference pick by both the coaches and media and a member of the Pac-12 All-Defensive Team as a senior.   The Storm went with 6-3 forward Mikaela Ruef out of Stanford with their third round pick. Ruef averaged 4.2 points and 6.6 rebounds in 36 games as a senior.
