Ozzie ‘Action Jackson’ signs new deal with Seatle

Australian basketball superstar Lauren Jackson looks likely to finish her WNBA career as a one-club player after signing a new multi-year deal with the Seattle Storm.

The three-time WNBA most valuable player announced the extension on Wednesday, but the details of the deal haven’t been released.

In April, Jackson announced she had come to an arrangement with Seattle allowing her to miss the first half of the 2012 season in order to concentrate on Australia’s buildup to the London Olympics.

However a hip injury in June subsequently ruled Jackson, 30, out of most of the 2011 season.

While Seattle are hopeful she’ll be able to return before the playoffs it is unclear whether the injury and this new deal have affected their previous arrangement.

Jackson has helped Seattle to a pair of titles, including last season’s sweep through the playoffs. She was the league MVP in 2003, 2007 and 2010.

The Australian women’s Olympic team, including Jackson, won silver at the 2008 Beijing Games.
