WNBA players repeated their calls for the officers who killed Breonna Taylor to be arrested after hearing news of the historic settlement between the family and the city of Louisville, Kentucky.

(CNN)WNBA players repeated their calls for the officers who killed Breonna Taylor to be arrested after hearing news of the historic settlement between the family and the city of Louisville, Kentucky.

Earlier on Tuesday, it was announced that the city of Louisville had agreed to pay $12 million to the family of Taylor and institute sweeping police reforms in a settlement of the family's wrongful death lawsuit.

"That's it?" Angel McCoughtry of the Las Vegas Aces, who spearheaded the WNBA's campaign, said to reporters when she was told of the news.

When Brittney Sykes, who plays for the No. 3 seed Los Angeles Sparks, was asked what she thought about the news on the settlement, she immediately asked, "They charge the cops?"

"I mean, yeah, money is cool, but did they charge the cops?" Sykes said.

Sparks' Candace Parker said the settlement is "a step. "

"But this isn't what our goal was," she said.

"I think that a settlement is not justice.

Money is not getting justice for Breonna Taylor or her family, and those officers still need to be arrested.

I think that the spotlight has kind of been on Louisville and (Kentucky) Attorney General Daniel Cameron, and I hope that he continues to do what needs to be done and arrest her killers. "
