The Lynx also have pick No. 4 thanks to a trade with the Connecticut Sun and the first two picks of the second round, giving them the chance to load up with four of the first 14 selections. Take a look at the complete draft order here.

Mock drafts: Moore is virtually the consensus top pick, according to complete mock drafts put together by Swish AppealESPNwWNBA.com, and so on. Each of those three agrees on Australian center Liz Cambage as the No. 2 pick, with everybody but Swish Appeal sending Xavier forward Amber Harris to Chicago at No. 3.
