The Atlanta Dream named Angela Taylor their new general manager and vice president on Jan. 21. Taylor, who replaces Fred Williams, has spent 10 years in WNBA front offices.

“We are extremely pleased to bring Angela to the Atlanta Dream as we work to ensure our team has the tools to take our organization to the next level,” said Dream co-owners Mary Brock and Kelly Loeffler. “She has tremendous experience at every level of the game in player personnel and basketball operations.”

Taylor, the owner and president of NetWorks Sports Consulting, was Washington's general manager from 2009 to '10, and was vice president of business operations for Minnesota from 2006 to '08.

Williams was relieved of his duties as coach and general manager but was retained as a consultant after Atlanta was swept by Minnesota in last season's championship series. The Dream are now 0-3 in their history in the WNBA Finals. They have made the playoffs in five of the six years of their existence.

Atlanta went 17-17 – they won 14-of-19 game following the All-Star break -- and finished second in the Eastern Conference behind only Chicago last year. The Dream then defeated Washington (2-1) and swept Indiana (2-0) to win the Eastern Conference championship.

Angel McCoughtry, the WNBA’s 2013 leading scorer and an Second Team All-WNBA selection, and Alex Bentley, an All-Rookie selection, will be counted on to lead the Dream again in 2014. McCoughtry, Erica de Souza and Arminitie Herrington will selected to the league’s 2013 All-Defensive Team

Michael Cooper was named the Dream's new coach on Nov. 21.
