How to watch the 2024 WNBA Draft

The 2024 WNBA Draft will air on ESPN.

When does the 2024 WNBA season start?

The 2024 WNBA season begins on Tuesday, May 14.

Will Caitlin Clark go No. 1 overall?

Simply put, it would be a generational mistake by the Indiana Fever to pass on Clark with the No. 1 overall pick. The 6-foot guard can do just about everything on both sides of the ball at an elite level.

Is Angel Reese going to the WNBA?

Yes, Reese is also headed to the WNBA. She made the announcement a few days after LSU's exit from the NCAA tournament, though the 21-year-old power forward said the decision was made beforehand.

Where Reese will fall is not as straightforward as Clark, however. Stanford's Cameron Brink and South Carolina's Kamilla Cardoso are also highly coveted prospects.

Who are the top prospects in the 2024 WNBA Draft?

Along with Clark, Reese, Brink and Cardoso, other quality players will be available in 2024. They include UConn's Aaliyah Edwards, Tennessee's Rickea Jackson and Utah's Alissa Pili.

Paige Bueckers of UConn will stay in college for another season due to having extra years of eligibility and USC standout freshman Juju Watkins won't be WNBA-eligible for a few more years.
