Tanaka, 27, played for the Fujitsu Red Wave in the Women’s Japan Basketball League from 2019-23. The 5-foot-11 forward had a shooting rate of 47.7 per cent from the field and 69.9 per cent from the free throw line in 28 games last season, according to ESPN.

Tanaka posted 7.8 points and 6.0 rebounds in 24 minutes per game during her final season, according to USA Today.
