After three years in the league, Turner made All-Defensive First Team two times and made All-Rookie Team in 2019.
“As I’ve said many times, we want high character, high effort players on our team, and Brianna Turner exemplifies that,” general manager Jim Pitman said in a press release.
“We also want players who want to be here in the Valley, as members of our Mercury and Suns organization, and in our community, and Breezy exemplifies that, as well. Getting this extension done speaks to how highly we value her now and how much we believe in her potential moving forward.”
Turner averaged 7.8 points per game and 9.4 rebounds last season while shooting over 50% for the third straight year.
She also holds the Mercury record for rebounds in a game with 21.
Turner was also the first player in WNBA history with at least 10 points, 20 rebounds, five assists and four blocks in a single game, according to the release.
