NEW YORK (AP) Tina Charles just wanted to come home and play alongside Cappie Pondexter at Madison Square Garden.

The New York native was traded Monday night to the Liberty from Connecticut for Kelsey Bone, Alyssa Thomas and next year's first round pick in a blockbuster deal.

"The opportunity to be in New York is a dream come true," said Charles in a conference call Tuesday. "My mom always took me to the Liberty games, I'd see Rebecca Lobo, Becky Hammon, (Teresa) Weatherspoon before games. This is a big dream to play at the Garden."
