Shortly after agreeing to a "contract divorce" with the Los Angeles Sparks, Aussie WNBA star Liz Cambage announced that she will be stepping away from the league “for the time being.”
In an Instagram post, Cambage apologized for leaving the Sparks the way she did, saying she wished it ended on a different note before diving into her decision.
I've decided to step away from the league for the time being and I'm hopeful that the WNBA will do their part in creating safer environments and a stronger support system for their players. ... I'll be taking this time to focus on my healing and personal growth before providing clarification on past rumors.
The sports world reacted to the surprising Cambage news.
"Saw this coming," tweeted Marcus Spears. "Hope she gets herself to a good place."
"Liz Cambage breaks up with league that already broke up with her," commented one user.
"She went from likable to out of a job in less than a year."
In 25 games with the Sparks, Liz Cambage averaged 13 points, 6.4 rebounds and 1.6 blocks.
