2014 WNBA Draft - Round 1, Pick 7: Seattle Storm select UConn's Bria Hartley

With the seventh pick in the 2014 WNBA Draft, the Seattle Storm have selected UConn guard Bria Hartley.

Wows: Her scoring efficiency in her senior year was outstanding and was nicely complemented by improved efficiency as a distributor. She's extremely quick in transition and should give Seattle a nice change of pace moving into the future as someone who can play both guard spots.

Wonders: How much will she play this season? Hartley joins a backcourt that includes Sue Bird, Temeka Johnson, and Tanisha Wright. Cracking that rotation in Brian Agler's system will be difficult.

Worries: Only one and it's not all that huge: Synergy data suggests that Hartley scores the majority of her points in spot up or transition situations. Seattle, to put it lightly, has not been the fastest-paced team in the league. How well will Hartley score against WNBA defenders in the halfcourt?
