The Atlanta Dream were busy on Tuesday announcing the signings of reserve center Nadia Colhado and veteran guard Roneeka Hodges.

Hodges spent portions of the last three seasons with the Tulsa Shock. She started all 34 games in 2014 while averaging 5.3 points, 1.8 rebounds and 1.4 assists. She is a 10 year WNBA veteran and will bring some leadership to the Dream's locker room.

"Coach Cooper and I are excited to add Roneeka's veteran leadership and blue collar work ethic to this team," said Dream President and General Manager Angela Taylor. "She is the consummate professional who will bring a lot to our system on both ends of the court. It is also great to bring Nadia back for her second year in the WNBA. She has worked extremely hard all off-season and is one of the talented young post players in our league. Roneeka, Nadia, Ify and Sequoia are all great additions as we continue to seek a WNBA Championship."

Colhado spent the 2014 season with the Dream appearing in 16 games while averaging 2.8 points and 1.8 rebounds. She spent most of the season as an emergency frontcourt option for head coach Michael Cooper.

The Dream also announced the signings of Sequoia Holmes and Ify Ibekwe to training camp contracts. The Dream also announced on Tuesday that they had re-signed All-Star center Erika de Souza.
