Chicago is about to get three new residents, thanks to the WNBA Draft.

In the first round of Monday's WNBA Draft, the Chicago Sky used two picks to select South Carolina center Kamilla Cardoso and LSU forward Angel Reese. Just weeks ago, the two were battling it out in the SEC Tournament Championship.

"I think it's gonna be great," Cardoso said in her post-draft press conference. "She's a great player, I'm a great player. So two great players together. Nobody's gonna get no rebounds on us."

The Sky also drafted Gonzaga guard Brynna Maxwell with the No. 13 pick in the second round of the draft. Maxwell started in 65 games with Gonzaga after transferring from Utah, averaging 14.2 points and 2.9 rebounds per game in her second season with the Bulldogs.

Chicago fans, teams, and city officials were quick to welcome the new additions to the city.

Iowa’s Caitlin Clark went No. 1 overall to the Indiana Fever, with Stanford’s Cameron Brink going with the second pick to the Los Angeles Sparks.
