She is also a member of the Hungarian national team. At 6 ft 10 in (2.08 m), she is the second-tallest player in WNBA history, behind the late Margo Dydek.
Hatar’s net worth is estimated to be around $500,000, according to some sources. She earns most of her income from playing basketball, both in Hungary and in the United States. She has signed lucrative contracts with Sopron Basket and the Connecticut Sun, as well as receiving bonuses and incentives for her performance and achievements.
In addition, she lives a modest lifestyle and does not spend lavishly on luxury items or cars. She is still in her prime and has a lot of potential to grow as a player and a person. Hatar is on her way to becoming one of the richest and most successful basketball players of her generation.
Hatar was born on August 24, 1994, in Pásztó, Hungary, and discovered her passion for basketball at the age of 10. Recognized for her potential as a dominant center, she joined MBK Euroleasing Vasas, a leading team in the Hungarian league, at the age of 14.
During her four seasons with the team, from 2012 to 2015, she played an instrumental role in winning two Hungarian Cups and one Hungarian Super Cup.
Since 2015, she has been an influential figure at Sopron Basket, the most successful club in Hungary. During her time there, she has contributed to six league titles, five cups, and one Super Cup, while also making three appearances in the EuroLeague Women's Final Four.
In the EuroLeague Women, she has maintained impressive averages of 11.4 points, 6.4 rebounds, and 1.6 blocks per game, earning her recognition on the All-EuroLeague Women Second Team in 2019 and 2021.
In 2015, at the age of 20, Hatar made her first appearance for the Hungarian national team. Since then, she has participated in two EuroBasket Women tournaments, in 2015 and 2017. Her contributions to the team include averaging 9.3 points, 5.8 rebounds, and 1.3 blocks per game for Hungary, establishing herself as a key player.
Presently, she is gearing up for the forthcoming EuroBasket Women 2023, scheduled to take place in June and July in France and Spain.
Hatar's outstanding performances in Europe attracted the attention of WNBA teams, leading to her signing with the Indiana Fever in February 2020. Unfortunately, an injury prevented her from participating in the 2020 season.
Despite this setback, she re-signed with the Fever in March 2021, making her WNBA debut on May 14, 2021, against the New York Liberty. Hatar achieved a career-high 12 points on May 21, 2021, against the Atlanta Dream but faced another injury that sidelined her for the remainder of the season after starting two games.
Before the 2022 season, she sustained another injury while playing with Sopron, leading her to miss yet another WNBA season. Although the star intended to return to Indiana for the 2023 season and signed a training camp contract with the Fever, she was suspended due to her national team commitments for EuroBasket Women 2023. Subsequently, on June 8, 2023, the Fever announced that they would be waiving Hatar.
On July 26, 2023, Hatar signed with the Connecticut Sun on a rest-of-season contract. Joining the Sun, who were leading the Eastern Conference and possessed the best record in the league, she made her debut on July 28, 2023, against the Los Angeles Sparks, scoring two points in four minutes.
Thus far, she has participated in six games for the Sun, with an average of 2.0 points, 1.5 rebounds, and 0.7 blocks per game.
Hatar is unmarried and does not have any children. She has chosen not to share details about her romantic life publicly, leaving it unclear whether she is currently in a relationship.
In addition, she prefers to keep her personal life private and focus on her basketball career. The WNBA star is dedicated to improving her skills and performance on the court, as well as representing her country and team with pride. She does not let any distractions or rumors affect her game or attitude.
