New York Liberty forward Swin Cash will retire from the WNBA following the 2016 season, she announced Tuesday on The Players’ Tribune.

“At the end of your career, you do a lot of reflecting,” Cash wrote. “I’ve played for multiple teams in the WNBA, and they’ve all felt like home: Detroit and Seattle, where I won championships, and Chicago, Atlanta and New York, my last stops. And the fans in each of those cities became something like family to me. They’re the reason I’m announcing my decision now. I want to spend this season showing my gratitude to everyone who’s been a part of this journey.”

A 15-year WNBA veteran, Cash was the No. 2 pick in the 2002 draft by the then-Detroit Shock. During her basketball career, the 36-year-old has won a pair of Olympic gold medals, two NCAA titles at Connecticut and three WNBA titles, among several other honors.
