WNBA basketball player Candace Parker has announced her decision to sign with the Las Vegas Aces. After playing with the Chicago Sky for two seasons, she decided to be closer to family.

In a transparent Instagram post Parker wrote, " I need to be there for my daughter, for my son, for my wife. I can't be without them for parts of the season when Lailaa is in school and I won't miss her volleyball games or school dances simply because of distance. Lailaa starts high school in August and I need to be there for her, just as she's been there for me. After evaluating the landscape together with my family, we've decided the Las Vegas Aces are the right organization for us at this point in our lives."
