Celine Dumerc has wrapped up her commitment to her European team and is scheduled to join the Dream on Sunday for the remainder of the WNBA season. Broadcaster LaChina Robinson said during Friday's telecast that head coach Michael Cooper indicated that Dumerc could see time in Tuesday's game against the Sparks.

Dumerc is regarded as one of the best point guards in Europe and was signed as a free agent over the summer by the Dream.
A corresponding roster move will have to be made in order to make room for Dumerc. Rookies Nadia Comes Colhado and Inga Orekhova have played sparingly over the first five games. Veterans Matee Ajavon and Swin Cash have watched their minutes decline also and have been struggling.
Jasmine Thomas has started all five games for Cooper but the other guard spot has been a bit of a revolving door between rookie Shoni Schimmel and Tiffany Hayes. Dumerc will provide a solid presence for Schimmel to learn from but it will be interesting to see how Cooper sets up his rotation once Dumerc gets up to speed on his system.
