List of all picks made in 2024 – NBC New York

The 2024 WNBA Draft is in the books.

A total of 36 players heard their names called during Monday night’s three-round draft at the Brooklyn Academy of Music in New York, and the event began in expected fashion.

The Indiana Fever kicked things off by selecting Iowa sensation Caitlin Clark with the No. 1 overall pick.

It was the second straight year that Indiana held the No. 1 overall selection after taking Aliyah Boston, who won WNBA Rookie of the Year, in 2023.

Clark now teams up with Boston on the Fever after a legendary college career in which she took the Hawkeyes to back-to-back NCAA championship games and set all kinds of records, including the all-time Division I record in men and women. And while Clark was certainly the crown jewel of this year’s class, several other big names were drafted shortly after her.

Stanford’s Cameron Brink moved from Northern California to Southern California as the Los Angeles Sparks took the No. 2 overall three-time All-American forward. The Sparks then added another highly touted prospect at No. 4 with the selection of Tennessee standout forward Rickea Jackson.

The Chicago Sky also had a few early picks and used them to strengthen the frontcourt. Chicago first took South Carolina All-American center Kamilla Cardoso at No. 3 before adding LSU three-time All-American forward Angel Reese at No. 7. Cardoso and Reese combined to take both latest NCAA Tournament Most Outstanding Player awards.

The Dallas Wings, meanwhile, took Ohio State All-American guard Jacy Sheldon fifth and the Washington Mystics selected UConn All-American forward Aaliyah Edwards sixth. Alissa Pili, Utah’s two-time All-American forward, finished eighth against the Minnesota Lynx.

The top 10 was completed by two French hopefuls. Dallas used its second first rounder on guard Carla Leite at No. 9 and the Connecticut Sun took guard Leila Lacan at No. 10.
