“I spent eight incredible years as a member of the Liberty and I’m looking forward to thanking the organization and the fans,” said Hammon. “I will always have a special place in my heart for New York because they gave me my first opportunity, and I’m so grateful to be able to go back and be inducted into the team’s Ring of Honor.”
