TULSA, Oklahoma – The Tulsa Shock have added second-year center Jacinta Monroe to its roster.

One day after waiving Miranda Ayim a rookie center, the team announced the addition of Monroe who was the sixth overall pick in the 2010 WNBA Draft.

"What she brings is some size," General Manager and Head Coach Nolan Richardson said. "When (Elizabeth) Cambage went down, it exposed us and our lack of size. She's bringing size, she can run the floor and block some shots. Shot-blocking is an area that she can really help us."

Monroe, a 6-foot-5 center, appeared in 17 games for the Washington Mystics in 2010, averaging 2.1 points in 6.9 minutes a game.

Monroe was selected sixth overall in the 2010 WNBA Draft by the Mystics before being traded alongside Katie Smith to the Seattle Storm this past off-season.

The team resumes practice Thursday and Friday of this week before hosting Washington on Saturday June 18 at 7 p.m.
