Former Sooner signs with the Shock: The Tulsa Shock say the team has signed former Oklahoma star Courtney Paris.

Paris was the No. 7 overall pick of Sacramento in 2009 but the team folded at the end of the year. The 6-foot-4 Paris was selected in the dispersal draft by Chicago but could not land a roster spot. In 2011, she signed with the Los Angeles Sparks and was waived three months later. Eventually, she landed with Atlanta in June 2011 but was waived earlier this year. (The Oklahoman)
