The Phoenix Mercury, Tulsa Shock, Washington Mystics and Chicago Sky are the teams in contention to select Baylor’s 6-8 All-American center Brittney Griner in the 2013 WNBA Draft.
By virtue of being bad enough to not qualify for the playoffs, they will be in Thursday’s draft lottery, which will determine the order for the first four picks in the 2013 Draft.
You figure Griner will be the pick, even if Tulsa, with 6-8 center Elizabeth Cambage of Australia on the roster, wins the pick. What good is a 6-8 center if she doesn’t show up for work? And that’s what Cambage did this season, staying home before the Olympics, then deciding to stay home after they were over, as well.
The next two picks should be Delaware’s Elena Delle Donne and Notre Dame’s Skylar Diggins.
