2014 WNBA Draft - Round 2, Pick 9: Phoenix Mercury select Maggie Lucas

With the 21st pick of the WNBA Draft, the Phoenix Mercury selected Penn State's Maggie Lucas.

Wows: Lucas is an outstanding three point shooter who does a great job at running off screens to catch and shoot threes. She's improved her ability to score outside of those situations and has a real chance to thrive in the Mercury's system.

Wonders: How much will she play on a team that doesn't lack for perimeter players and, when she does play, how will they set her up for shots?

Worries: For all the talk about how good of a shooter Lucas is, she only shot 41.2% from inside the arc - very low compared to past prospects - and is not an especially good ball handler/playmaker. With her slight frame, the big concern is what she does in the pros when not being set up for threes.
