2004 Storm Draft HQ
The Storm had the first pick in the 2001 and 2002 WNBA Drafts, yielding Sue Bird and Lauren Jackson.
With the 19th pick of the second round of the 2004 WNBA Draft, the Storm selected Louisiana Tech forward Catrina Frierson. A two-time First Team All-WAC selection, Frierson was an AP All-America honorable mention as a senior and averaged 12.4 points and 6.0 rebounds in 127 career games for the Lady Techsters. The Storm had just one selection in this year’s draft as a result of two previous trades. On May 20, 2003, Seattle dealt its third-round pick to the Houston Comets for guard Rita Williams. On Thursday, Apr. 15, the Storm traded its first-round pick (sixth overall) and forward Amanda Lassiter to the Minnesota Lynx for forward/guard Sheri Sam and center Janell Burse.
