11. Atlanta Dream: Sophie Cunningham, 6’1 G/F, Missouri
Her season is over, and her final game did not inspire confidence in her decision-making. Cunningham committed three first-half fouls, the third an obvious reach-in after Robin Pingeton trusted her to be careful. And yet, it’s hard to see her falling beyond the first round. She’s capable of playing anywhere 1-3, guarding mostly wings, facilitating offense as necessary, hitting threes and providing max effort every single moment. Atlanta has the surrounding talent to mix her in and weather her defensive limitations, while allowing Cunningham to bring her offensive skills to bear upon an offense that finished eleventh in true shooting percentage in 2018. Atlanta did not, in my opinion, overachieve in 2018, which means thinking about title runs should be part of the Dream equation. Cunningham, as rookies go, looks like one who can enter the rotation for such a team. She better avoid those reach-ins, though.
