Los Angeles Sparks announced Tuesday that they have parted ways with 6-foot-8 center Liz Cambage of Australia.

Cambage, 30, is averaging 13.0 points, 6.4 rebounds and 1.6 blocks in 25 games this season after signing with Los Angeles on Feb. 15. He must now go through waivers before becoming a free agent.

“It is with support that we share Liz Cambage’s decision to terminate her contract with the organization,” said Sparks managing partner Eric Holoman. “We want the best for Liz and have agreed to amicably part ways. The Sparks remain excited about our core group and are focused on our race to a playoff spot in 2022.”

Cambage was the Tulsa Shock’s second overall pick in 2011, but has played in only five WNBA seasons. She took a leave of absence in 2012 to prepare for the London Olympics with the Australian team and took a four-year hiatus from the league (2014-17) because she didn’t want to play in Tulsa. The franchise moved to Dallas in 2016, and she returned to the league in 2018.

She played one season for the Wings before being traded to the Aces in 2019. She also didn’t play during the 2020 bubble season. Cambage came to Los Angeles in the offseason and said that’s where she always wanted to play.
