Minnesota Lynx guard Maya Moore has announced that she intends to step away from the court, and the WNBA, for 2019.

Moore announced her decision to sit out the 2019 WNBA season during a post penned on The Players’ Tribune:

“My focus in 2019 will not be on professional basketball, but will instead be on the people in my family, as well as on investing my time in some ministry dreams that have been stirring in my heart for many years.

“I will certainly miss the day-to-day relationships with my teammates and basketball family this season, but my no for the 2019 pro season allows me to say yes to my family and faith family like I never have before.

Moore, 29, has played her entire career in Minnesota.
