In a flurry of WNBA transactions Tuesday, the Storm landed two players to help add depth.

Seattle traded a 2015 second-round draft pick to Los Angeles for guard Jenna O’Hea, an Australian Olympian. The Storm later announced the signing of forward Angel Robinson, a former Georgia standout who played the past two seasons in Spain.

Both players can provide size and versatility, which Seattle needs due to the retirement of forward Tina Thompson and the fact center Lauren Jackson will miss a second straight WNBA season because of an injury. O’Hea is a 6-foot-1 deft three-point shooter while Robinson is a 6-5 player who improved her play overseas.

Robinson, 26, was a second-round draft pick by L.A. in 2010 and was cut by the Washington Mystics during training camp in 2011, never logging a WNBA minute. She signed with Perfumerias Avenida in Spain, garnering a third contract from the club in March after averaging 11.5 points and 10.2 rebounds in EuroLeague play.

“I watched her play over the past three seasons and believe that she can help us both offensively and defensively,” said Storm coach Brian Agler, who opens training camp April 27.

O’Hea, 26, is an established international star, missing the majority of the 2012 WNBA season to compete in the London Olympics. O’Hea has played three seasons off the bench overall for the Sparks, shooting 50 percent from three-point range in 29 games last year.

The WNBA draft is April 14. Seattle has the seventh pick in the first round.
