2015 WNBA Mock Draft
Lisa Donovan breaks down her WNBA Mock Draft leading into tonight's WNBA Mock Draft
Posted By Lisa Donovan Last Updated: April 16, 2015.
Seattle Storm: Jewell Loyd, PG, Notre Dame
- I'm amazed and yet a little disappointed by Jewell Loyd's choice to go pro at the last minute. She's 22 years old meaning she was eligible to declare for the WNBA Draft.
- Loyd stepped up constantly once Skylar Diggins left. After guiding Notre Dame to two consecutive NCAA Women's Baseketball Championship games, Loyd is the top pick in a weak WNBA Draft with no clear cut #1 player.
Tulsa Shock: Kaleena Mosqueda-Lewis, SF, Connecticut
- Tulsa has Skylar Diggins who adjusted from shooting guard to point guard at Notre Dame and Odyssey Sims at guard. Center Courtney Paris just got a long term deal with the Shock.
- Forward is really the only position of need for the Tulsa Shock. Kaleena Mosqueda-Lewis guided Connecticut to two consecutive NCAA Women's Basketball Titles. Mosquera-Lewis also has the best All Time 3 point shooting percentage among scorers in Women's Basketball. I'd take Kaleena Mosqueda-Lewis player first, but Jewell Loyd is likely to go first now that she declared.
Seattle Storm: Amanda Zahui B., C, Minnesota
- Amanda Zahui B. decided to declare last minute. The Storm will likely take Minnesota's center who left school early third overall here.
Connecticut Sun: Elizabeth Williams, C, Duke
- My New York Liberty traded this pick to Connecticut. What the hell was Lady Liberty thinking? Elizabeth Williams is a very versatile big. She can play power forward or center in the WNBA. Most believe Williams is the fourth best player in the 2015 WNBA Draft.
Chicago Sky: Reshanda Gray, SF, California
- Only in the WNBA does a team like the Chicago Sky win the Eastern Conference as a 4 seed in their conference and still get to have a top 5 pick. If you think about the Conference Champions should not be able to pick in the top 10 since the WNBA only has 12 teams. In this draft, the Sky do get a top 5 pick so the Sky need to add another forward. Reshanda Gray is the top forward available.
San Antonio Stars: Brittany Boyd, PG, California
- Brittany Boyd was once considered a candidate to be the #1 overall pick before Jewell Loyd declared to go Pro days leading up to the 2015 WNBA Draft. The Stars take Boyd here.
Los Angeles Sparks: Dearica Hamby, SF, Wake Forest
- The Sparks have an awesome front court with Nneka Ogwumike at power forward and Candice Parker at center. With Alaina Beard aging, Dearica Hamby out of Wake Forest might be a good idea.
Washington Mystics: Samantha Logic, PG, Iowa
- Washington needs to do something smart. Maybe they should draft Samantha Logic.
San Antonio Stars: Isabelle Harrison, C, Tennessee
- Isabelle Harrison would be a top 5 pick in any other WNBA Draft. While this draft class lacks a true #1 player, there is a lot of depth at the top which is why Harrison slipped to 9. The reason the Stars take her is because she has the versatility to play power forward or center.
Atlanta Dream: Kiah Stokes, C, Connecticut
- Atlanta can take the best player available with this pick Kiah Stokes was a huge reason why Connecticut won back-to-back titles in Women's Basketball.
Minnesota Lynx: Brianna Kiesel, SG, Pittsburgh
- Brianna Kiesel is the top shooting guard in this draft. She will likely go to Minnesota as a depth player on a Lynx team that is loaded.
Phoenix Mercury: Aleighsa Welsh, PF, South Carolina
- The Mercury already have the leagues youngest and best player in Brittney Griner. Now you draft another big to compliment Griner in Welsh who also has the versatility to play small forward as well as power forward.
