1. New York Liberty select Sabrina Ionescu

There’s just no universe in which I can see the New York Liberty taking anyone other than Sabrina Ionescu, a player Jonathan Kolb and Walt Hopkins can build the franchise around, a plug-in point guard who makes threes at an elite level and dramatically improved her finishing around the rim, a culture-builder who will get better shots at every turn for shooters on the roster like Kia Nurse, Asia Durr, Rebecca Allen and Amanda Zahui B. If the Liberty deal Tina Charles, still very much an active idea, the new arena with a group of young players on team-friendly deals will become an obvious landing spot for the next big free agent as well. It’s hard to predict the future, especially these days. This isn’t hard to predict, though.
