7. Chicago Sky select Ruthy Hebard, 6’4 F, Oregon
For all the improvements out of Chicago this season, a deficiency has been a lack of offensive rebounding. Alaina Coates has been jettisoned, and exactly who can fill that role remains unknown among the current roster. Enter Hebard, who has steadily improved from an already-impressive freshman season, managing to finish a close second to Megan Gustafson in field goal percentage this past year, almost doubling her assist percentage and cutting her turnover percentage significantly. She could stand to improve at the free throw line, and a block percentage more in line with her 5.2 in 2017-18 than last year’s 2.9 would be a strong indicator a WNBA team could get her minutes at the five. You can be sure, whatever is required, Graves will make sure she’s ready. And those tools would get her rotation time with James Wade right away.
