WASHINGTON - Washington Mystics forward Elena Delle Donne has been named the 2019 WNBA Most Valuable Player, the WNBA announced on Thursday.

It's Donne's second MVP award and by winning the trophy, she became the first player in WNBA history to earn the honor with two different teams.

She was also selected as MVP in 2015 while playing with the Chicago Sky.

Donne, a seven-year veteran, led Washington to a league-best 26-8 record in regular season and the No. 1 seed in the 2019 WNBA Playoffs.

Donne, 30, was selected by the Sky with the No. 2 overall pick in the 2013 WNBA Draft. She spent four seasons with Chicago before joining the Mystics prior to the 2017 season.
