WNBA draft lottery results

Thanks, hoopfeed and sportspagemagazine:


Team Record Chances (out of 1,000)

Minnesota 13-21 276
Tulsa 6-28 442
Chicago 14-20 178
Minnesota from Connecticut 17-17 104

Minnesota had 380 chances out of 1,000 to receive the first overall selection by virtue of owning Connecticut’s combinations (104) in addition to its own (276). The Lynx’ 276 combinations were the result of finishing 13-21 during the 2010 regular season in which Minnesota lost the series tie-breaker and the No. 4 playoff seed to Los Angeles. The additional 104 chances were the result of a Draft Day trade with the Connecticut Sun last April that saw Connecticut send its 2011 first round pick to Minnesota in exchange for the rights to Kelsey Griffin. Connecticut ultimately missed the playoffs with a 17-17 regular season record.

The Tulsa Shock, who had 442 chances out of 1,000, will have the second pick in the Draft followed by the Chicago Sky, who had 178 chances. Minnesota, by virtue of its trade with Connecticut, will also have the fourth pick.


Team Record

Los Angeles 13-21
San Antonio 14-20
Tulsa from Phoenix 15-19
Atlanta 19-15
Indiana 21-13
New York 22-12
Washington 22-12
Seattle 28-6

So once again Minnesota makes out like a bandit. Will they ever be able to stay healthy and reach their full potential?

And once again, LA's crappy record serves them well. Will they be able to make the right pick this time?

I don't know the answers to either of those questions.

Well I'm hoping they can trade for Nicky Anosike, or better yet if Minny let her go. Also...with that 5th pick..if we don't have a big girl we better go big, & if we do, I would take sharp shooter Angie Bjorklund from Tennessee. Check out my youtube.com/utcp3

I can see where you're coming from, but I'd still take Anosike. She's a smarter player, has more experience and is more mature than Bjork.

angie needs to have a big senior year and take ut deep into the final four if she wants to go top 5.
