The 2021 WNBA Draft is tonight at 7 p.m. ET on ESPN. The event will be held virtually, like last year because of the coronavirus pandemic.
First, you never know if there’s a draft trade and Washington ends up getting back in. Also, given how deep and small rosters are, it’s inevitable that most second and third round picks just aren’t going to be on a roster for very long, if at all. It’s not unheard of to see a first round pick get cut as well. If the Mystics suffer a bout of injuries this season, perhaps some players who are drafted tonight but cut before opening day could be in consideration.
