Phoenix Mercury guard Skylar Diggins-Smith has just added a new impressive trophy to her career resume, and she didn’t have to be on the court for it. On Wednesday, Diggins-Smith announced via her Instagram story that she had won an Emmy award for her work from the booth as a broadcaster for the Phoenix Suns.
Diggins-Smith had a very impressive 2022 season for the Phoenix Mercury, even though she missed games towards the end due to personal reasons. However, in the 30 games, Diggins-Smith started, she averaged 19.7 points per game, 5.5 assists, and 4.0 rebounds.
Even though the game misses Diggins-Smith, she has a lot to be thankful for this holiday season as she prepares for the birth of her second child. However, with that being said, we should not be surprised to see her back out on the court hooping when the new WNBA season starts!
