2014 WNBA Draft - Round 1, Pick 11: Connecticut Sun select Duke point guard Chelsea Gray

With the 11th pick in the first round, the Connecticut Sun selected Duke point guard Chelsea Gray.

Wows: Let me begin by saying I love both this pick and what the Sun are doing in this draft. Gray does have a path to recovery ahead of her, but was easily the best distributor in the nation before her injury cut her season short with her ability to pass and score. When you look at the talent that Connecticut has assembled, they're well on their way to being a strong competitor in the future.

Wonders: How long will her recovery take and just how good can she become? She was clearly not at full strength for the games she played this season and if she can ever get back to anywhere near full strength, she could be dominant.

Worries: That she loses more speed or becomes further impeded by her injuries. She's an amazing talent, but let's just hope those knees hold up.
