WNBA superstar Candace Parker revealed she’s considering retirement in a recent interview with “Good Morning America”. During her interview, the Las Vegas Aces star admitted that her decision will come down to whether she’s healthy or not.
The 37-years-old forward/center missed the second half of the season after undergoing a surgery for a foot fractured in June. Before that, at the start of the 2023 WNBA season, she joined the Las Vegas Aces.
“If I’m healthy, I’m gonna play,” she said (via The Athletic).“But I’m not gonna play in pain anymore. It’s too important — the trick-or-treating, the crossing over my kids, it’s too important. If I’m healthy I’m gonna play.”
Parker signed a one-year deal with the Aces last offseason. Parker is an unrestricted free agent after becoming the first player in WNBA history to win a championship with three different franchises.
Drafted No. 1 by the Sparks in 2008, Candace Parker guided the Sparks to a WNBA championship in 2016 and added a second title with the Sky in 2021.
