10-24, 6th in Eastern Conference.
No team has done more to revamp its roster over the past eight months or so than the Washington Mystics, who haven't made the postseason since 2006. In that span the team has added Tasha Humphrey, Lindsey Harding, Matee Ajavon and Chasity Melvin among others. Suddenly, Washington is one of the deepest teams in the league and a serious contender for a playoff spot. Acquiring the new talent came at a cost though, as the Mystics lost veteran center Taj McWilliams-Franklin and a couple of high picks in this year's draft (Nos. 9 and 15). And it still remains to be seen how these pieces will fit together under new coach Julie Plank. The team figures to add another big piece soon by virtue of possessing the No. 2 selection in the upcoming draft. Conventional wisdom says the team will go with best player available, but considering the Mystics were the worst offensive team in the league last season it's crucial they come out of the draft with a top-notch scorer, ideally one who plays in the post.
