Minnesota Lynx get 1st pick in WNBA draft

Share This Story



The Minnesota Lynx will have the top pick in next year's WNBA draft. The Sacramento Monarchs, who finished with a league-low 12 wins this year, received the second pick in the draft lottery Thursday, followed by the Connecticut Sun, the Lynx again with the fourth pick, and the Chicago Sky. Minnesota has two lottery picks because it received New York's first-round selection in a three-team trade on May 5 that also involved Los Angeles. The No. 1 pick ended up being the one the Lynx got from the Liberty. The remaining draft order is San Antonio, Washington, Tulsa, Los Angeles and Atlanta. Seattle, Indiana and the Sparks round out the final first-round picks in the 13-team draft. The draft date has not been announced.
