Behind the Scenes at WNBA Draft Player Orientation 2016

A dozen of the nation’s best players have been invited to partake in WNBA Player Orientation, a two-day event in Bristol, Conn., where members of the incoming rookie class can learn about the life of professional basketball before Thursday’s WNBA Draft (7 PM ET, ESPN2/ESPNU).

It’s also a time where the players can get to know each other and start to introduce themselves to a new fanbase.

See below for some highlights from WNBA Player Orientation, including a visit from the first three players to sign to the WNBA 20 years ago, Rebecca Lobo, Lisa Lesie and Sheryl Swoopes.
