2014 WNBA Draft - Round 3, Pick 3: Tulsa Shock select Theresa Plaisance

The Tulsa Shock selected 6-foot-5 LSU center Thresea Plaisance with the 27th pick in the third round.

Wows: There was one obvious type of situation where Plaisance could excel: in a high-low situation with a low post threat. Whether she's playing with 6-foot-8 Australian center Liz Cambage or 6-foot-3 power forward Glory Johnson, Plaisance has an excellent chance of succeeding with the Shock with her ability to score from the perimeter and pass the ball quite well.

Wonders: Can she make the roster? She clearly has the skillset to do so and with Cambage's status unclear (as usual) she might have a better chance than some other late picks.

Worries: Plaisance was neither a very good offensive rebounder nor a very efficient scorer in the post. That leaves a question as to whether she'll just be a 6-foot-5 spot up player or someone who can truly be an inside-outside threat.
