WNBA Draft 2021: The Mystics won’t pick anyone (for now), but they should be fine

The WNBA Draft is on Thursday, April 15 at 7 p.m. ET. You can watch it on ESPN and the event will be virtual due to the ongoing coronavirus pandemic. In most years, I would have gone on an analysis of several players who could be Washington’s selection in the first round. However, Washington traded their first round pick (fifth overall) to the Dallas Wings in a deal to get Tina Charles. And furthermore, they have no picks in this draft.

This doesn’t mean that the front office will be asleep at the wheel on Thursday. Tyler Byrum of NBC Sports Washington wrote that General Manager and Head Coach Mike Thibault and his staff will always do their due diligence.
