Reese was named WNBA Rookie of the Month in June, when she averaged 14.5 points and 13.2 rebounds per game and had double-digit rebounds in all 11 games for the month. After her record-breaking June, she now leads the league in rebounding with 11.4 a game. 
The same day she was announced as the rookie of the month, the league said she would play in its 20th All-Star Game on Saturday, July 20, in Phoenix. Along with the recent honors, Reese and her teammate, Kamilla Cardoso, reached a double-double in the same game in a season for the third time, the most for a rookie duo in WNBA history.
