WNBA Draft Open Thread: Where Will Layshia Go?

New, 132 comments

And Talia Caldwell might hear her name get called in . . . Bristol, Connecticut? Well, OK then.

Hopefully Layshia will have just as big a smile when she learns where her professional career will begin.

So, let's start with a caveat: I know nothing about the WNBA. I was totally prepared to start following the league, but then Ashley Walker never got much of a chance, getting cut and taking her game to Europe. I don't know anything about any of these franchises. I don't know which would be a good fit, or which team Layshia would have the best shot of making the roster. But she's one of 12 players invited to the draft, so she's going to get her name called and she'll have a great shot at making an impact. There's also the (slim? I dunno) possibility that Talia Caldwell will get drafted. So I'm going to watch!

Luckily, there are plenty of smart people out there to provide information! Like, say, the fine folks at Swish Appeal! Here's a run-down of their Cal-specific content!

Talia Caldwell's Draft Profile
Swish Appeal Draft Board

While you're at it, you should just check in on their front page as they are likely to have instant analysis that's significantly more informed than anything I can provide.

Meanwhile, ESPN has a few items worth reading:
