SEATTLE (AP) -- The Seattle Storm have added depth to their front-court by signing former No. 1 overall pick Ann Wauters.

Seattle announced the signing of the veteran center on Monday after head coach Brian Agler returned from Spain, where he met with Wauters, who is currently playing in the EuroLeague.

The 31-year-old Wauters last played in the WNBA in 2009 and took the last two seasons off. She was the No. 1 overall pick in the 2000 WNBA draft by Cleveland. Wauters also played for New York and San Antonio and was an All-Star in 2005.

Wauters is currently playing with Seattle star Lauren Jackson for Ros Casares Valencia and leads that team in points (14.9) and rebounds (8.0) per game.
