Swish Appeal Community Mock Draft Pick No. 9: Who should the Indiana Fever select?

New, comments

The mock draft continues as we head back to Indy to see what they will do with the ninth pick.

It was a close race, but with UConn's Bria Hartley being drafted by the Atlanta Dream at number eight in our community draft, we added Bri Kulas of Missouri to the board.

Onward to pick nine.

You are the Indiana Fever General Manager, and are making your second pick in the first round. You acquired this pick and Lynetta Kizer from the Phoenix Mercury in exchange for Erin Phillips.

Four days ago when you were on the clock for the fifth pick, you selected Kayla McBride of Notre Dame, who is a good rebounder at the guard position and also provides steady playmaking and scoring ability. In particular you are impressed with the former because now she is able to showcase that part of her game more, since Skylar Diggins graduated last year.

In addition, drafting McBride at number five also makes sense given that Katie Douglas decided to sign a new contract with the Connecticut Sun, not to mention that she would provide more upside too given where both of them are in their WNBA careers.

There are still some good candidates left on the board who could help provide a spark for your team, and this is another opportunity for you to add someone who could be a consistent player for you this season and beyond.

So, who would you pick at #9?
