The Shey Peddy story: How the Phoenix Mercury guard overcame the odds

Yahoo News 13 October, 2021 - 06:53am

Catch up quick: Peddy's journey began in 2012, when she was drafted by the Sky out of Temple.

After getting cut early in training camp, she went abroad to play in Israel, where checks were late and she had to drive herself to away games.

In 2013, Peddy was invited to Mystics training camp only to be cut in preseason again. After nearly quitting, she recommitted herself to basketball and blossomed into a EuroLeague star in Latvia.

Then came 2019. Peddy was once again cut by the Mystics in training camp, but when the team needed a replacement player midseason, she came home and made her WNBA debut at age 30.

She was cut again three weeks later, but was such an asset that the Mystics hired her as a coaching and video intern. A few months later, Peddy won an WNBA title as a member of the "coaching staff."

2020 was more of the same ... until it wasn't. Peddy was a late addition to the Mystics' bubble roster and got waived midseason. But before she cleared waivers, the Mercury swept in and signed her.

That move paid off in a huge way, as Peddy hit a buzzer-beating three — against the Mystics (!) — to help Phoenix advance in the playoffs.

This season, Peddy has been a key contributor for the Mercury, appearing in every game and scoring double-digit points in four of her last five playoff games entering tonight.
