The WNBA�s Draft Lottery will take place today in New York City as the Chicago Sky, Minnesota Lynx and Tulsa Shock will enter the day with the hopes of scoring the number one pick in 2011. A series of meetings will be held throughout the day, with the top four picks in the 2011 Draft decided by later in the evening.

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.
