Coaches, GMs tab McCowan for the top pick in mock draft
NEW YORK — The Associated Press polled a panel of WNBA coaches and general managers for a mock draft of the two rounds this spring. Panelists were limited to college seniors and eligible foreign players, and they could not offer a pick for their own team. While last season there was a clear-cut No. 1 in A’ja Wilson, there is no consensus top pick this year. The top three picks remained the same from the first mock draft with Teaira McCowan, Asia Durr and Kalani Brown going 1-2-3.
1. Las Vegas: Teaira McCowan, Mississippi State. The Aces franchise has the No. 1 pick for the third year in a row and can add a dominant post player to complement Wilson.
2. New York: Asia Durr, Louisville. The Liberty have many holes to fill. Getting a scoring guard who can create her own shot would help.
3. Indiana: to the Sun.
10. Washington: Kristine Anigwe, California. Would give Mystics another athletic post player who knows how to score and rebound.
Baylor center Kalani Brown (21) and UConn forward Napheesa Collier are expected
