Which team do you think got the player who could easily look like a top 3 or even 5 pick, three years from now?

Dallas with Stevens. I think a few teams will regret passing on her.

What do you guys think about the Sparks first round pick? It reminds of me when Van Chancellor use to selection European players knowing that he could gamble with Cynthia, Tina and Sheryl on his roster. I figured she would go to a good team who don't need her service immediately.

Russell at #22 if you’re looking at value.

I don’t think I’ve ever seen Liberty fans so intrigued by a bottom second round pick.

I forgot about Vadeeva. I think she will be a good player for LA and could help to defend Fowles.

Picks are very relative to what the clubs find out behind the scenes about certain players. Some find out how a player has trouble following directions. This makes it very difficult for any coach as they have to be able to have players who can pick up scouts on the fly with little turn around for games and such a short season.

Nared may surprise people, and while I don't think she's going to look like a Top 3 pick, I think Goodwin can be a lot better than an 18-pick.

Maybe in a few years but certainly not now

I am more than a little intrigued with Maria and her potential. I rarely scout players collegiately and even less internationally these days. However, I love the energy and seemingly fundamentally solid play I have seen from her in highlight videos. It would be sweet to see how well such a talented youngster can develop under the tutelage of Brian over the years . . . assuming she stays and he continues to want her around.

With Alana approaching retirement, it will be interesting to see who emerges as her heir apparent for future play. Will Sydney 'Syd the Kid' Weise continue to grow and develop for the Ladies of LaLa? Can Shakayla Thomas make a dent in the stacked LA lineup?

I still don't get the disdain people have for Gabbs. She's a poor woman's Catchings! Let's not forget people harped on Catch for not being a good shooter, but she developed that part of her game. If you had all of the draftees play one on one, I'd be willing to bet Gabby would be in the top 3 and that's going against the bigs. For instance, how will Aja guard Parker and the best players in the world? How we she score on such players. People are stuck on height and positions, but forget that many players have proved those to be an anomaly.

This is a thread about “steals”. Gabby at #4 represents fair value unless you think she’s gonna go on to win ROY. I wonder how DeShields would respond to Gabby having a ROY type season.

A’ja vs whoever else might be a rookie starter.

Are you saying in a few years when Fowles gets old?

I meant it more as in a few years so that Vadeeva can bulk up a bit more. She is already undersized against Fowles but also lacks in the strength department against her. Also playing 20 min per game in the Euroleague is different then playing 20 min in the wnba defending the best posts in the world

It's hard to judge Vadeeva as none of the highlights shows her going against WNBA players. And everybody looks better than they are in a highlight reel. Agler could play her as much as he played Sydney Weise last year - 7.9mpg in 28 regular season games, and 1 minute total in the playoffs. Agler played Sandrine Gruda 3.9mpg in 7 games last year.

Hard to see why she would come over to only play a few minutes per game. However, LA is a pretty desirable destination and with living quarters provided, could be tempting.

I believe the apartments the Sparks provide are on the beach. Kind of an unfair advantage for the Sparks, wouldn’t you say?

If she’s supposed to be this big time prospect of the future, I could see Agler giving her more time than he normally gives rookies and bench fodder... to keep her more engaged so she wants to come back.

He did give Tolo plenty of time her first year, but I don’t believe she was 20 either.

One of the perils of evaluating players mainly from clips. What you need then is a lowlight or blooper reel to balance it off... not to mention a do-nothing reel where the player is not involved in the action and just stands around watching. Smile

I am really looking forward to seeing Maria play against WNBA talent. I loved Marianna Tolo's blue collar work ethic when she played with us a few years back, taking care of all the dirty work inside the paint. Does Maria have such a work ethic to go with her ability to score too?

Not unfair advantage against the Lynx in the Land of 10,000 Lakes. Maybe the Sun should try that. Razz

You cant really compare the 2. Tolo is a pretty good defender and does all the little things while Maria is a lot more offensive skilled
