San Antonio wins the WNBA draft lottery

BY foxsports • September 28, 2016

NEW YORK (AP) San Antonio won the WNBA draft lottery Wednesday night and will have the No. 1 pick next April.

The Stars, who have the top choice for the first time, had a 44 percent chance to secure the No. 1 selection based on having the worst combined record the past two seasons.

The Washington Mystics will pick second with the Dallas Wings going third and the Los Angeles Sparks fourth. The Sparks acquired Connecticut's lottery pick through a draft-day trade last April that sent Jonquel Jones to the Sun.

Connecticut and Dallas each had a 23 percent chance of getting the No. 1 pick. Washington had a 10 percent chance.

Unlike the previous few seasons, there is no clear-cut No. 1 pick coming out of college this year.
