A person familiar with the situation says Los Angeles forward Candace Parker has won the WNBA MVP.
The person says Parker will receive the award Thursday night in Los Angeles before the Sparks-Phoenix Mercury opener of their Western Conference playoff series. The person spoke to The Associated Press on condition of anonymity because no announcement has been made.
The person says Parker edged out Minnesota's Maya Moore and Chicago's Elena Delle Donne in one of the closest ballots in league history. The league's awards are voted on by a 39-member national media panel.
The 27-year-old Parker averaged 17.9 points, 8.7 rebounds and 3.8 assists in helping the Sparks (24-10) finish second in the Western Conference.
It's the second MVP award for Parker, who also won it her rookie year.
