The Seattle Storm acquired forward Morgan Tuck and the No. 11 pick from the Connecticut Sun on Monday for the No. 7 pick in the draft.

"We are thrilled to welcome Morgan to Seattle Storm basketball,'' Storm CEO and general manager Alisha Valavanis said in a statement. "Morgan is an elite competitor with a championship pedigree. She adds a versatility that we believe will complement our team and our style of play.''

Tuck was the third overall pick of the 2016 draft after being a member of four national championship teams at UConn. She has appeared in 67 of a possible 68 games for the Sun and helped Connecticut reach the WNBA Finals last season.

"I am super excited to be continuing my career with Seattle," Tuck said in a statement. "I'm grateful for this new experience and the opportunity to be able to play with such great players and for a great organization. I can't wait to get started and I know this season is going to be a special one."
