Later part of the first round, Dallas Wings also chose Carla Leite at No. 9, followed by the Connecticut Sun selecting guard Leila Lacan at No. 10.

The Indiana Fever continued their draft success with Celeste Taylor from Ohio State at No. 15. Meanwhile, the Los Angeles Sparks ranked up their lineup with Dyaisha Fair from Syracuse, adding depth and versatility to their backcourt. The New York Liberty capitalized on the draft’s depth, selecting Esmery Martinez from Arizona at No. 17 after a successful college career.

    As the draft entered its final round, the intensity remained high. The Phoenix Mercury opted for Charisma Osborne from UCLA at No. 25, while the Seattle Storm added Mackenzie Holmes from Indiana at No. 26. The Indiana Fever rounded out their selections with Leilani Correa from Florida at No. 27, ensuring a diverse and talented roster for the upcoming season.
