A Note from Klop:
“Many teams will look to take the best available talent at any position and some will look to fill a need that they may have on their team. WNBA coaches have been out scouting the college talent all year and are in the process of evaluating those players and ranking their importance and ability to play in the WNBA. General Managers and coaches like to use mock drafts to try to surmise how draft day will go, but as we've seen in the past that there are usually some major surprises on draft day which always makes the draft "must see TV." No doubt the WNBA draft tonight will bring some exciting and surprising results!”
