Renee Montgomery Makes History As the First Former WNBA Player to Own a Team Franchise

The idea of WNBA players owning their own teams started as just a tweet from LeBron James back in January. That idea is now a reality thanks to former WNBA player Renee Montgomery and her new ownership group. According to ESPN, Montgomery made history last week after forming a three-member investor group — which includes Northland Investment Corp. president Suzanne Abair — that has been approved to purchase the Atlanta Dream from republican and former Sen. Kelly Loeffler. Montgomery is now the first former player to become both an owner and executive of a WNBA franchise team. She, alongside Abair, will play an active role in the leadership of the team. She broke the news on Twitter via a video she tweeted out. Blessings 🙏🏾 Moments really do equal Momentum.
