One of the greatest WNBA players of all-time is coming back for more.

The Athletic's Shams Charania reports that nine-time All-Star Diana Taurasi is returning to the Phoenix Mercury on a multiyear deal.

Taurasi, 38, has spent her entire 16-year career with the Mercury after being taken with the first overall selection of the 2004 WNBA Draft out of Connecticut.

The native of Glendale, CA appeared in 19 games last season for the Mercury, averaging 18.7 points on .409 shooting, 4.5 assists and 4.2 boards over 28.1 minutes a night.

A four-time Olympic gold medalist and the 2009 WNBA Most Valuable Player, Taurasi needs to appear in two games to move into the WNBA's top-10 for most games played.

For her career, Taurasi has averaged 19.6 PPG, 4.3 APG and 4.0 RPG.
