1. Indiana Fever select Lauren Cox, 6’4 F/C, Baylor
For WNBA teams in search of that next Breanna Stewart/Elena Delle Donne hybrid, Cox is the best bet out of the 2020 draft to make that leap as a professional. As a junior, she continued to be a force from inside the arc, with the ability to step outside, grabbing rebounds, blocking shots and even posting an assist rate near 20 percent. The positional fit for the Fever here is far greater than Sabrina Ionescu, with Kelsey Mitchell and Erica Wheeler looking like a backcourt for Indiana for many years to come. But a starting five of those two, Teaira McCowan, Cox and Candice Dupree, with Victoria Vivians back next year with instant offense off the bench, Shenise Johnson and Tiffany Mitchell in the rotation as well? That’ll be a team that can win a lot of games.
