The 2020 WNBA Draft Lottery is underway, and one particular team has an edge over all others.
The New York Liberty earned the No. 1 pick in the 2021 Draft. The draft order was announced Friday during halftime of the Louisville-DePaul women’s basketball game on ESPN.
The Dallas Wings took home the No. 2 pick while the Atlanta Dream nabbed No. 3.
New York entered the draft lottery with 44.2% odds of landing the No. 1 pick.
The remainder of the first, second and third rounds will be determined “by inverse order of the teams? respective regular-season records solely from 2020,” per a league statement released Tuesday.
The annual event typically takes place in April.
The WNBA usually begins its season in May, though the COVID-19 pandemic could alter that date.
