2021 WNBA Draft Results: Texas’ Charli Collier Goes No. 1 To Dallas

The 2021 WNBA Draft is here and with it comes plenty of intrigue, particularly as it relates to what the Dallas Wings will do. Entering the week, Dallas had four of the top seven picks in the draft, already dealing the 7th overall pick to the L.A. Sparks on Wednesday, but with the first, second, and fifth picks still all theirs as the draft began, there was plenty of speculation on whether more trades would be on the horizon.

There wasn’t a question as to whether they would keep that first overall pick and with it, they stayed in state by selecting Texas center Charli Collier No. 1 overall to provide them with some needed size in the frontcourt after she averaged a double-double for the Longhorns last year with 19 points and 11.3 rebounds. Their second pick was Awak Kuier, a Finnish forward who played last year in Italy and will provide more frontcourt depth as well.

As the draft rolls on, we’ll be updating the results live here, with the Wings dominating the first round but plenty of other teams looking to add some youth and depth to their rosters for the 25th season of the WNBA.
