Atlanta, GA (Sports Network) - The Atlanta Dream re-signed guard Coco Miller and center Courtney Paris on Wednesday.

Miller appeared in 31 games last season, posting her best campaign since arriving in Atlanta, as she averaged 7.3 points, 1.9 rebounds and 1.4 assists per game.

A 2001 draft pick of the Washington Mystics, Miller has averaged 5.9 points and 2.1 rebounds per game over 11 WNBA seasons. She has reached the playoffs six times, and was named the WNBA's most improved player in 2002.

"Coco has been very instrumental in our success over the last three seasons, especially our last two conference championships," said Dream head coach and general manager Marynell Meadors. "She has given a lot of her time and effort into making us better. She comes to work every day and I really like her work ethic."

Paris played in 28 games last season in a Dream uniform, averaging 3.4 points and 3.1 boards off the bench. Paris was taken seventh overall in the 2009 WNBA Draft by the Sacramento Monarchs.

"Courtney's best basketball is in front of her and she is an important part of our team," said Meadors. "As she adjusts to our style, her rebounding and her ability to get offensive rebounds and second chance points will be vital to our success."
