The Las Vegas Aces announced the signing of 11-year WNBA veteran guard Tiffany Hayes on Friday.

Hayes, 34, played for the Connecticut Sun last season following a decade-long run with the Atlanta Dream.

The 2017 All-Star has career averages of 13.6 points, 3.3 rebounds and 2.4 assists in 317 games (274 starts).

“Tiffany is a fiery competitor with a winner’s mentality,” Aces general manager Natalie Williams said. “A savvy veteran who will be a great addition to our team.”

Hayes was a second-round pick (14th overall) in the 2012 WNBA Draft out of UConn. She made the All-Rookie first team in 2012, the All-WNBA first team in 2018 and the All-Defensive second team in 2018.

“Joining the Aces will be very exciting for me,” Hayes said. “I’m just grateful that they are willing to work with me as I am diving headfirst into a new era in my life. It will be nice to experience the west coast and this organization as I join them on the road to another winning season. I have no doubts that there is something special brewing, and I’m just another great ingredient being added to the mix. Let’s go Aces!”

Two-time defending champion Las Vegas (4-1) is on the road Friday night against Hayes’ former team, the Dream (3-2).
