WNBA Draft 2024: Caitlin Clark goes No. 1 to Indiana Fever; Angel Reese joins Kamilla Cardoso on Chicago Sky

After a historic NCAA tournament, women’s college basketball’s best and brightest took their next step Monday night in the WNBA Draft in New York.

Caitlin Clark started the night by going No. 1 overall to the Indiana Fever after helping Iowa to the national championship game in back-to-back seasons.

Clark finished her college career averaging 31.6 points and 8.9 assists per game, both of which led the country.

Stanford’s Cameron Brink was next, going to the Los Angeles Sparks, and Kamilla Cardoso from South Carolina went No. 3 to the Chicago Sky.

After an illustrious collegiate career at LSU, Angel Reese was selected by the Sky with the seventh pick, joining Cardoso in the frontcourt rotation.

It was an incredible evening for the WNBA, with commissioner Cathy Engelbert saying she was “pretty confident” the league will expand to 16 teams by the 2028 season.

Engelbert said Philadelphia, Toronto, Denver, Nashville and South Florida are potential landing spots for expansion teams
