The Sky finally have found a resolution with disgruntled center Sylvia Fowles, sending the three-time All-Star to the Minnesota Lynx as part of a three-team deal.
Chicago receives center Erika de Souza from Atlanta, while the Dream net center Damiris Dantas, forward Reshanda Gray and Minnesota's 2016 first-round pick. Chicago also will send a 2016 second-round pick to the Lynx as part of the deal.
The 29-year-old Fowles played seven years in Chicago after being selected No. 2 overall in the 2008 WNBA Draft. She averaged 15.7 points, 9.8 rebounds and 2.0 blocks in 186 games, and was named the Defensive Player of the Year in 2011 and 2013.

Fowles had demanded a trade from Chicago during the offseason and sat out the first half of the year. The Sky managed well without Fowles, going 11-6 and sitting second in the Eastern Conference.
de Souza has averaged 8.6 points and 7.5 rebounds in 17 games this year for the Dream, where she had spent the last eight seasons.
Minnesota leads the Western Conference with a WNBA-best 12-4 record, though they've recently been hit by injuries that Fowles will help offset.
