WNBA draft lottery to be held Friday
12/1/2020 12:49:16 PM EST
The WNBA will conduct its four-team 2021 draft lottery Friday, the league announced.
The event will be held during halftime of the Jimmy V Women's Classic college basketball game pitting Louisville against No. 20 DePaul. That game will tip off on ESPN at 6:30 p.m. ET.
Bethany Donaphin, the WNBA's head of league operations, will reveal the lottery results.
The New York Liberty, Atlanta Dream, Dallas Wings and Indiana Fever are in the running for the top pick of the 2021 WNBA Draft, which will be held in April. Lottery odds are based on the cumulative records of the two past regular seasons.
The same four teams were eligible to capture the top pick last year, with the Liberty ultimately winning the honor. They chose Oregon guard Sabrina Ionescu with that selection.
The Liberty sport a 12-44 cumulative record over the last two seasons. They have the most chances to land the top pick (442 out of 1,000) and are guaranteed at least the third pick.
The Dream, who previously had the No. 1 pick in 2019, own a 15-41 record over the last two seasons. Their chances for securing the top pick are 276 out of 1,000.
The Wings have a 18-38 record in that same two-season span, while the Fever are 19-37. They have 178 and 104 chances, respectively, to land the top overall pick.
