Brittney Griner is back in a Phoenix Mercury uniform over two months after returning from incarceration in Russia.
Griner officially re-signed with the only WNBA team she’s ever known this week, reportedly on a one-year deal with Phoenix worth $165,100.
On Friday, the franchise posted a video of Griner in a Mercury uniform for the first time since her signing.
Griner, who spent 10 months in Russian custody after authorities allegedly discovered that she had vape canisters with cannabis oil in her luggage, will return for her 10th WNBA season.
The WNBA champion was arrested in February 2022 at Moscow's Sheremetyevo Airport and was later classified as "wrongfully detained" by the U.S. State Department.
