Earlier today, the Seattle Storm and Chicago Sky announced a major trade: Swin Cash and Le’coe Willingham to Chi-town for their #2 draft pick. It looks good for both sides, as the Sky needed some experience and the Storm needs some youth. Sky Coach Pokey Chatman is elated, and Storm Coach Brian Agler is “remaking the roster.” This will be the Seattle team’s first top-four pick since 2002, when they selected Sue Bird.
Fans assume that the Los Angeles Sparks, who get first pick, will take Stanford’s Nnemkadi Ogwumike. If they do that, who will the Storm take at number two?
There has also been hypothesis that Baylor’s Brittney Griner will forego her senior year for the draft. If she does this, should the Sparks take her or Ogwumike? Who would the Storm choose then?
Lots of unknowns right now, but many thoughts.
