The Seattle Storm have traded WNBA All-Star Swin Cash and forward Le'coe Willingham to the Chicago Sky for the No. 2 pick in the 2012 draft.
The teams announced the deal on Monday. Seattle also sent a second-round pick to Chicago, the 23rd overall.
Seattle coach and general manager Brian Agler says the trade will free up significant salary cap space for the Storm. It will be the first time Seattle has held a pick in the top four of the draft since selecting Lauren Jackson and Sue Bird with the No. 1 overall picks in 2001 and 2002.
Cash averaged 12.7 points and 6.2 rebounds in her four seasons with the Storm and helped Seattle to the 2010 WNBA title.
