WNBA draft 2019 order: Full list of pick selections from Nos. 1 to 36

For the third year in a row, the Las Vegas Aces have the top pick in the WNBA Draft, and the up-and-coming team used that pick to Notre Dame’s Jackie Young to its roster. The scoring guard forms a star-studded backcourt tandem with Kelsey Plum and Kayla McBride, with all-star A’ja Wilson in the post.

The rest of the top five were all players who saw action deep into the NCAA Tournament, al l making at least the Elite Eight. Louisville guard Asia Durr was picked second by New York, followed by Mississippi State centers Teaira McCowan taken third by Indiana. Guards Arike Ogunbowale from Notre Dame and Katie Lou Samuelson from UConn fell off the board after that.

Notre Dame had three players selected in the first round, with Brianna Turner at No. 11 overall following Young and Ogunbowale. The Irish had five players selected in the first 19 picks.

SB Nation’s final mock draft can be seen here.

The draft could spur some trades, too. Dallas Wings MVP runner-up, Liz Cambage, requested a trade in January, and teams are still vying for her talents. Could she find a new home soon?

Anything’s possible.
