Brittney Griner signed a one-year contract with the Mercury

Britney Griner, who was imprisoned in Russia for almost 10 months last year, signed a one-year contract with the Phoenix Mercury, according to multiple reports on Sunday.

Several U.S. media outlets, citing unnamed sources, reported that Griner returned to the team that helped her become the 2014 WNBA champion.

After being released in a prisoner exchange last December, Greener said she plans to return to her WNBA career.
