Official 2019 WNBA Draft order confirmed for all three rounds

The 2019 WNBA Draft will begin with Bill Laimbeer and the Las Vegas Aces on the clock at No. 1 once again. Now that we are about two months into the women’s college basketball season, the anticipation will continue to build as the draft (date still to be determined) approaches.

High Post Hoops has confirmed the official 2019 WNBA Draft order for all three rounds with a league spokesperson.

Though the Indiana Fever had the best odds at drawing the No. 1 overall pick, they were leapfrogged by the Las Vegas Aces and New York Liberty. The order of the second and third rounds, however, are not impacted by the lottery results.
