File- This Aug. 4, 2011 file photo shows San Antonio Silver Stars guard Becky Hammon, left, driving past Minnesota Lynx guard Candice Wiggins in the first half of a WNBA basketball game in Minneapolis. Hammon's return from injury is critical to the team's fortunes. Entering her 16th season, she has career averages of 13.3 points and 3.8 assists. "Becky makes things work," coach Dan Hughes said. "She's veteran enough to understand not only her position, but the totality of what we're doing. She can communicate it on the floor in a way that provides understanding and that's what your great players do." (AP Photo/Stacy Bengs, File)
