The Tulsa Shock announced on Wednesday they have re-signed former University of Oklahoma All-American Courtney Paris as well as Chante Black and Amber Holt for the 2013 season.
Holt, who has played in the WNBA for four seasons, averaged 5.8 points in 24 games with the Shock in 2012.
"Amber Holt is a solid pro that can play multiple positions," Shock head coach Gary Kloppenburg said. "Her versatility is important to us as we continue to develop our roster."
The 6-foot-5 Black averaged 3.2 points and 2.7 rebounds per game in 2012, while the 6-foot-4 Paris had averages of 3.2 points and 3.1 rebounds. She also finished seventh with a field-goal percentage of 54.2.
"Courtney Paris has tremendous upside as she continues to improve. She has shown that she can rebound and score inside and will have an opportunity in training camp to battle for playing time as we continually work to upgrade our frontline," Kloppenburg said. "Chante Black is another center that can potentially make an impact on our team. She will have an opportunity in camp to step up and take her game to the next level."
Paris was the seventh overall pick in the 2009 WNBA draft by Sacramento - but bounced to Chicago, Los Angeles and Atlanta after the Sacramento franchise folded. She signed with Tulsa last June.
The Shock's home opener will be May 27 at the BOK Center and shown on ESPN-25.
