Ahhhh. Draft Day. It’s FINALLY HERE!

After all the hoopla over who may be number one to which prospects fit better on certain teams, all of that speculation must be put to rest. A’ja Wilson of South Carolina is still probably going to be the first overall pick to the Las Vegas Aces, but you never know what’s going to happen after that. That’s what makes the WNBA Draft an event to see.

Here’s how you can watch the WNBA Draft tonight, as well as some general resources from around the web.
