After failing to gain a roster spot with the WNBA’s Minnesota Lynx, former UW-Green Bay Phoenix women’s basketball star Julie
Wojta (Francis Creek, WI) has signed a contract with Eurocup team Dexia Namur Capitale in Belgium. The 6’0 forward was waived by the Lynx after competing for a roster spot during its two-week training camp which included a pair of preseason games.
Wojta is expected to clear waivers in the 48 hour timeframe, making her an unrestricted free agent with the opportunity to sign with another WNBA franchise. However, with the regular season tipping off May 20, there is a very small chance and window of opportunity for Wojta to join another WNBA team.
In September, Wojta will travel to Belgium where she will join Dexia Namur and compete in round-robin type of play, competing in multiple countries throughout the season.
