2. Dallas Wings select Satou Sabally
The Dallas Wings have themselves what you’d call a good problem at the second pick. Now that Satou Sabally has entered the draft, they face a question of which player to build around, the big counter to Arike Ogunbowale in the backcourt. Lauren Cox is the local product, and has been atop the Dallas board for a long time. But the level of love for Sabally around the league, well, it gives the Wings, who are clearly not a finished product by any stretch, but rather an intriguing collection of assets assembled by Greg Bibb, more options. Cox may well end up on the Wings anyway, who own most of the first round’s selections (only a slight exaggeration) and have tons of young players who fit well into other team cap scenarios. But two WNBA sources indicated to High Post Hoops that Sabally is the planned pick, and so, at least for now, we’re adjusting the big board accordingly. Across the league, Sabally’s ability to grow into the kind of player who has paced championship teams of late is too good to pass up.
