If you head to WNBA.com today, you'll probably note that the coming weekend has been designated "Rookie Weekend" as NBA TV will be broadcasting games featuring seven of the top nine picks from the 2013 WNBA Draft.

Two of those games will take place on NBA TV today, with the San Antonio Silver Stars hosting the Seattle Storm at 8 p.m. EDT and the Phoenix Mercury host the Washington Mystics at 10 p.m. EDT.

This will make next week's statistics post looking at the league's top rookies look far better timed than it was really planned to be.

But we start with the Tulsa Shock and their trade of a former top eight pick in the draft, shortly after snapping a 3-game losing skid.

Obviously there are other links bound to pop up around the web today that aren't listed here. Feel free to drop them in the comments, post a fan shot, or write a fan post if you have extended thoughts on a topic (and then drop the fan post in the comments).

Happy Rookie Weekend.
