Lynx sign Thorburn, add free agent Strom
MINNEAPOLIS -- The Minnesota Lynx signed one of their first-round draft picks, point guard Shona Thorburn, to a contract on Friday.
They also agreed to terms on a deal with free agent guard Jess Strom.
After selecting LSU's Seimone Augustus with the first overall pick on Wednesday, Minnesota chose Thorburn, of Utah, at No. 7.
Strom, a Penn State product who was with the Connecticut Sun in the preseason last year, is a strong outside shooter who ranked second in the Big Ten in assists and steals during the 2004-05 season as a senior.
