Las Vegas Aces guard Kelsey Plum was named the WNBA's Sixth Player of the Year on Thursday.

Plum, the 2017 first overall pick, made the permanent switch to a bench role for the first time this season and averaged a career-best 14.8 points - second on the Aces - in 26 appearances.

Las Vegas also had another award winner Thursday, with general manager Dan Padover taking home the league's Basketball Executive of the Year honor for a second consecutive campaign.

Padover signed free agents Chelsea Gray and Riquna Williams during the offseason, and both players averaged double digits while starting all 32 games, helping the Aces finish atop the Western Conference and with the second-best record overall.
