Lynx swap backup guards; sign McKenith, cut Moore

MINNEAPOLIS (AP) The Minnesota Lynx have signed guard Nadirah McKenith.

The move was made Tuesday. To make room on the roster, the Lynx waived guard Lindsey Moore, their first-round draft pick last year.

McKenith played in 32 games for Washington as a rookie last season, averaging 2.8 points, 1.1 rebounds, 1.0 assists and 8.8 minutes. She was a second-round draft pick out of St. John's but waived in May after training camp.

Moore played sparingly as a rookie out of Nebraska, and the signing this year of veteran guard Tan White further limited her opportunity in a reserve role behind Lindsay Whalen, Seimone Augustus and Monica Wright.

The Lynx play at the Seattle Storm Friday.
