Sabrina Ionescu is just barely into her second year in the WNBA but is quickly emerging as a face of the league.

At 5-2, her New York Liberty have the third-best record in the league, and already have three more wins than they did all of last season. 

Ionescu is averaging 16.1 points, 6.6 rebounds, and 7.1 assists per game this season and earlier this year became the youngest player in the history of the league to record a triple-double.

The Oregon Ducks legend is already a star in the WNBA, but she's just getting started. On Wednesday, she announced the latest move of her career - joining Kevin Durant's Boardroom.

Ionescu joined ESPN's The Jump on Wednesday to talk more about her new venture.

"I just love the world basketball has provided for me on and off the court. From culture, brands, investment opportunity and the Boardroom encompass all of those things," said Ionescu. "Obviously having KD and Rich here in New York is awesome... I feel like I can really bring my brand relationships to life in a unique way and bring fans, and obviously a lot of young girls and boys behind the scenes of my partnerships through all of Boardroom's network."

According to an official release from Boardroom:

"Ionescu will provide an inside look at growing her own business portfolio off the court and her unique insights on brand partnerships like State Farm and Nike. She’ll work with Boardroom on content, events, and editorial, including a collaboration with Thirty Five Ventures co-founder Kevin Durant.

 

Ionescu will also become a strategic partner to Thirty Five Ventures, giving her visibility and access to venture capital partners and key stakeholders in the organization’s network while further growing her personal portfolio."

On the court, off the court, it doesn't matter - The G.O.A.T keeps doing G.O.A.T things.
