The Stars said Wednesday that the team's all-time leader in assists, points per game and three-point field goals made has left an indelible mark on the league. The 37-year-old Hammon is a six-time All-Star who ranks seventh in history in total points (5,756), second in three-point field goals made (817), fourth in assists (1,663), sixth in games played (440) and first in free-throw percentage (89.6 percent, minimum 300 attempts).

The former Colorado State star signed with the New York Liberty after going unpicked in the 1999 WNBA Draft. She helped guide New York to six playoff appearances, and with the Stars reached the finals only to fall to Detroit in 2008.
