The 2021 WNBA draft is in the books, with the Wings having made league history by using the first two picks. Dallas appears to have bolstered its frontcourt after selecting Texas center Charli Collier and Finnish forward Awak Kuier. The Dream snagged Aari McDonald with the third pick, adding the star of the 2021 women’s NCAA tournament.
While this year’s class might not have some of the headline-grabbing names of other recent classes, it still has plenty of talent that could shape the league going forward. Below are the winners and losers of Thursday’s draft:
Winner: Dallas Wings
In a league full of loaded frontcourts, Dallas is hoping that the duo it selected on Thursday night becomes a foundational part of a future dynasty.
