Brianna Kiesel was drafted by the Tulsa Shock (now the Dallas Wings) in the 2015 WNBA Draft. Kiesel looked somewhat promising as a rookie but ended up being waived last July.

She remained unsigned until February of this year when the Atlanta Dream signed her to a multi-year deal (terms not disclosed).

The season just got underway this month and while Kiesel isn't starring, she is getting minutes off the bench. Through three games this year, she is averaging 1.7 points and an assist per game.

Last year, Atlanta reached the Conference Finals before losing to Chicago.
