Whalen will play in her final WNBA playoffs this season, as the Lynx have already clinched their spot with a 17-14 record.
She has already begun writing the next chapter in her basketball life as she was named head coach of the women's basketball program at her alma mater back in April.
Whalen, a four-time WNBA champion, was selected fourth overall by the Sun in the 2004 draft. "It's something that I'm definitely honored to be a part of and really proud of - hopefully for a lot of years Lynx and Gophers can keep that going".
The 36-year-old Whalen is a two-time Olympic gold medalist.
Whalen has won five WNBA championships - all with the Lynx - and will retire with the most wins of any player in WNBA history.

Despite the influx of talent, the Lynx struggled in Whalen's first season, finishing 13-21 and out of the playoffs.
