Tamera Young and her pigtails are making quite an impact with the Atlanta Dream.

The rookie forward, the Dream’s unexpected first draft pick, ranks among the WNBA’s top five rookies for both scoring and rebounding. That comes as a member of the Dream and its 2-19 record, the worst in the league.

“I see a star,” coach Marynell Meadors said. “I see a star who’s getting ready to be born.”

The Atlanta Journal-Constitution profiles Young in a lengthy piece today. The Dream, in the middle of a six-game road trip, plays again Wednesday at Indiana.
