Breanna Stewart has made her choice.
The two-time WNBA champion and 2018 MVP has decided to sign with the New York Liberty. Stewart, who has averaged 20.3 points and 8.6 rebounds in her six seasons in the WNBA, was the most high-profile free agent of this year's class, and a series of emoji-laden tweets kept her fans guessing as to where she would end up.
Stewart's decision is an incredible boost to the Liberty, who went 16-20 in 2022 and also acquired 2021 MVP Jonquel Jones. Athletes from the WNBA and beyond reacted to the news on Twitter.
