For the second-straight season, the Lynx will draft sixth-overall in the WNBA Draft.
In the 2019 WNBA Draft, the Lynx drafted Napheesa Collier sixth overall. It’s safe to say, that played out pretttttty well.
If you’re too lazy to click that, Collier won the Rookie of the Year and she’s probably going to make like 10 All-Star games in her career.
The Lynx finished the season with an 18-16 record, falling in the first round of the playoffs. It’s the same result as the 2018 season, but the difference is that the Lynx weren’t expected externally to be particularly very good.
Now, coming off a season that should make fans optimistic, the Lynx have another mid first-round pick to add more talent to their arsenal.
Below is a look at the order of the first round:
- New York Liberty
- Dallas Wings
- Indiana Fever
- Atlanta Dream
- Phoenix Mercury
- Minnesota Lynx
- Seattle Storm
- Chicago Sky
- Dallas Wings (via Las Vegas)
- Connecticut Sun (via Los Angeles)
- Connecticut Sun
- Washington Mystics
As always, we’ll ramp up our draft coverage as we get deeper into the 2019-20 women’s college basketball season.
