MINNEAPOLIS -- The Minnesota Lynx re-signed free-agent forward Amanda Lassiter on Friday.

Lassiter was acquired from Seattle in a trade last April that also brought the sixth overall pick in the 2004 draft, which the Lynx used to select Nicole Ohlde.

Lassiter started 12 games and played in 33 for the Lynx last season. She averaged 3.8 points and 2.4 rebounds a game.
