2024 WNBA Draft: Draw Results and Final Decision as Indiana Fever select Iowa's Caitlin Clark No. 1

The 2024 WNBA Draft has concluded, setting the stage for new talents to make their mark in the league. The Indiana Fever, having secured the first pick in the lottery, chose Caitlin Clark. The Iowa standout finished her remarkable college career with a historic season, culminating in a national championship appearance, where she averaged 31.6 points, 7.4 rebounds, and 8.9 assists per game. Her WNBA debut is highly anticipated.

Clark was a clear choice for the top pick, but the draft's outcomes were less predictable beyond that. The Los Angeles Sparks, with two top-five picks acquired from a trade with the Seattle Storm, selected Stanford's Cameron Brink with the second pick. Brink's season stats of 17.4 points and 11.9 rebounds per game made her a standout.

South Carolina's Kamilla Cardoso also made headlines, fresh off leading the Gamecocks to a national title and entering the WNBA as the Chicago Sky's third overall pick.

Angel Reese of LSU, despite a slight dip in her 2023 stats to 18.6 points and 13.4 rebounds per game, was still a top ten pick.

The Fever, hoping to build on last year’s record of 13-27, look to improve with a young roster that includes last year's first pick and Rookie of the Year, Aliyah Boston. With a lineup featuring Clark, Kelsey Mitchell, Boston, and NaLyssa Smith, the team's prospects are bright.

The Sparks, after a 17-23 season in 2023 and losing forward Nneka Ogwumike to the Storm, expect significant contributions from Brink. Adding Tennessee star Rickea Jackson with the fourth pick, the Sparks aim to revamp their team.

The Sky, years from their last WNBA championship, see Cardoso as a key piece for future success. Chicago fans are optimistic about the new dynamics Reese will bring, especially after falling to the seventh pick, which could fuel her inaugural season motivation.
