LOS ANGELES (AP) - The Los Angeles Sparks traded forward Lindsay Wisdom-Hylton to the Chicago Sky in exchange for a second round pick in the 2012 WNBA draft.

The deal announced Wednesday sends Wisdom-Hylton back to her hometown after two seasons with the Sparks. She is from suburban Naperville, Ill., the hometown of Sparks star Candace Parker.

Wisdom-Hylton averaged 3.5 points and 2.5 rebounds in 61 career regular-season games with the Sparks after being drafted by the team in 2009.

With the acquisition of the Sky’s second round selection, Los Angeles now holds five picks in the 2012 draft. In February, the Sparks received a second round choice from the Tulsa Shock in exchange for guard Andrea Riley.

The Sparks open the season on Friday against Minnesota.
