Kiana is participating in the Connecticut training camp and aiming to enter the WNBA roster.

The WNBA Connecticut Sun announced the 2024 training camp roster on its official website on the 27th (Korean time).

Her catchy name is Kiana Smith of WKBL Yongin Samsung Life Insurance. She made her WNBA debut in 2022 in an LA Sparks uniform. She played one season and was traded to Connecticut in January of last year. However, she suffered a patellar tendon injury in her knee during a game at Samsung Life Insurance and was unable to play the WNBA schedule last season.

Connecticut, which had ownership, extended a qualifying offer to Kiana in late January. Simply put, a qualifying offer is an invitation to a training camp. Kianna accepted Connecticut’s extended qualifying offer, and she was named to the 18-man training camp roster as scheduled.

The Connecticut training camp begins on the 29th Korean time at the Mohegan Sun Arena in Uncasville, Illinois. Elisa Thomas, who played in the WKBL in the past, as well as key members of the team, DeWarner Moner and Breonna Jones, will participate.

Kiana needs to show impressive play in her training camp to be eligible for a WNBA roster. In fact, 11 people have been confirmed. Therefore, it is expected that, along with Kiana, Renia Davis, Shay Fedi, Sidney Wije, and Jocelyn Willoughby will compete for the remaining spot.

As soon as the WKBL season ended, Kiana moved to the United States and participated in the Connecticut training camp. Attention is being paid to whether she can overcome the competition from her prominent teammates and enter the WNBA stage in the new season.
