Mercury Signs Dymond Simon To Seven-Day Contract

The Phoenix Mercury has signed local product Dymond Simon to a seven-day contract, the club announced today. Simon will fill one of the roster exemptions granted due to the long-term injuries to Candice Dupree and Charde Houston.

A 2011 graduate of Arizona State University, Simon played high school basketball at St. Marys in Phoenix and is making her second stint with the hometown WNBA squad. She was invited to the Mercurys 2012 training camp but then waived prior to the start of the regular season.

The seven days on Simons contract will begin when the WNBA season resumes on Aug. 16 when the Mercury travels to Seattle to take on the Storm. Tipoff is slated for 7 p.m. Pacific Time. The club returns to US Airways Center on Sunday, August 19 when it hosts the San Antonio Silver Stars in an afternoon tipoff scheduled for 3 p.m.
