2. Dallas Wings select Lauren Cox, 6’4 F/C, Baylor
Few players have improved their draft position so far, especially among the prospective first rounders, making it hard to know just how vulnerable Lauren Cox would be to falling in another year. After all, Cox left the championship game with an injury, while her senior season has been limited to three games so far. Even so, returning this week, there’s little reason to believe that the Wings could or would pass her up if given the chance to select her. Cox comes to the table with too many WNBA-ready skills, from the shot-blocking to the range, the reach projectable, the rebounding, the basketball intelligence — expect Cox to come in and play a key role right away on a Dallas team that has other rangy bigs, but none as custom-fit to a Brian Agler scheme as Cox is.
