2014 WNBA Draft - Round 1, Pick 10: Chicago Sky select N.C. State's Markeisha Gatling

The Chicago Sky selected N.C. State center Markeisha Gatling with the 10th pick in the 2014 WNBA Draft.

Wows: There's not a more efficient post scorer among the post prospects in this draft class and Gatling does it impressively. She establishes position in the post as well or better than some WNBA post players and makes her moves decisively.

Wonders: She very much has a power game and you just have to wonder how easily she'll score against WNBA posts. Gatling is extremely effective right around the basket, but considerably less so once she gets pushed out beyond five feet.

Worries: The only concern about Gatling is that she's one of a few post players who suffers from something of a low personal foul efficiency rate. It won't get any easier to avoid fouling at the WNBA level.
