The Los Angeles Sparks announced today the signing of guard Keana Smith to a 7-day contract. The Sparks signed Smith after being granted a hardship exception. Smith will be available for tonight’s game at Crypto.com Arena against the Phoenix Mercury at 4:00 PM PT on ESPN.

The Sparks drafted Smith out of Louisville in the second round of the 2022 WNBA Draft at No. 16 overall. She was waived before the regular season after appearing in both of the Sparks’ preseason games. The 6-foot combo guard was a standout at Louisville, where in two seasons after transferring from Cal-Berkeley, she averaged 11.7 points per game and made 37 percent of 314 three-point attempts in her junior and senior seasons.

Smith was a starter on a Cardinals team that reached the 2022 NCAAW Final Four. She scored 14 points and grabbed five rebounds in the Final Four game against the eventual champion South Carolina Gamecocks.

The Sparks host the Mercury today and next up against the Seattle Storm on Thursday, July 7th at 7:30pm PT.
