Gabrielle "Gabby" Williams is an American-French professional basketball player for the Chicago Sky of the Women's National Basketball Association (WNBA). Drafted 4th overall by the Chicago Sky in 2018, Williams has since gone to win the Spanish League Championship. By the end of her rookie season, Williams had a chance to play against the top players in the league and go against some of the players she grew up watching, and despite having a rough start to her WNBA career, she is predicted to be a strong force in the upcoming season.
