Olajuwon waived by Sky

7/2/2010 - Chicago Sky

The Chicago Sky waived rookie center Abi Olajuwon on Friday, head coach and general manager Steven Key announced. Olajuwon is the daughter of NBA Hall of Famer Hakeem Olajuwon.

The Sky drafted Olajuwon out of the University of Oklahoma with the 28th pick in the 2010 WNBA Draft. She played in six games this season, averaging five minutes and one point.

"This was a great learning experience for Abi," Key said. "Her time with the Sky will benefit her basketball career down the road."
