In all likelihood the number one pick in next year's draft will be Maya Moore, the 6-foot power forward out of UConn who has already made a name for herself after playing on two championship-winning Huskies teams and more recently USA Basketball�s gold-medal winning squad in this year�s FIBA World Championship.
While the Tulsa Shock still stands the best chance at winning the lottery with a total of 442 out of 1,000 chances, the Minnesota Lynx sit a close second with a combined 380 chances; 276 based on the Lynx's position in the standings this past season and another 104 with Connecticut's pick, the result of trading 2010 third-overall pick Kelsey Griffin to the Sun on draft day. The Chicago Sky round out the lottery class with a total of 178 chances of landing the first pick in next season's draft.
Following is a list of teams taking part in the lottery and the number of chances they have in securing the top pick.
