The WNBA’s latest franchise is the Atlanta Dream. The machinery for the team was put in motion in 2007, their first season began in 2008 with two pre-season losses, and an opening night loss to the Connecticut Sun: 67 - 100.

The Atlanta Dream are owned by real estate mogul J. Ronald Terwilliger. They play their home games at the Philips Arena, the same location where the NBA Atlanta Hawks and the NHL Atlanta Thrashers.

The first coach in franchise history was named on November 27, 2007: Marynell Meadors. He is also the general manager. Meadors was also the first coach of the now-defunct Charlotte Sting.

The team held its expansion draft on February 6, 2008, in which they selected one player from each of the 13 teams in the league. Atlanta traded Roneeka Hodges and their number 4 pick in the WNBA draft to the Seattle Storm for Brazilian star Iziane Castro Marques, in addition to Seattle’s 8th pick in the 2008 draft. Also, they traded the 18th pick and LaToya Thomas to the Detroit Shock for guard Ivory Latta.
