Lynx: High picks, high hopes

  • Updated: April 10, 2011 - 11:47 PM


The Lynx have the No. 1 and No. 4 overall picks in Monday's WNBA draft. They've had high choices since 2006 but haven't made the playoffs in that time.


First overall: Seimone Augustus, guard. Five-year veteran has been injured the past two seasons. She won a gold medal with the U.S. at the 2008 Olympics.


First overall: Lindsey Harding, guard. She was drafted by Phoenix and immediately traded to the Lynx for Tangela Smith. Harding had knee surgery in her first season and was traded for draft picks in 2009 to Washington. She has started every game as the Mystics made the playoffs the past two seasons.

Fourth overall: Noelle Quinn, guard. Injured her first two seasons, and was traded to Los Angeles in 2009 for a 2010 first-round pick. She started all 34 games for the Sparks last season as they made the playoffs for the second consecutive season.


Third overall: Candice Wiggins, guard. A key player her first two seasons, she ruptured an Achilles' tendon last season in the 14th game.


Fourth overall: Renee Montgomery, guard. After a so-so season, she was traded last year to Connecticut as part of the Lindsay Whalen deal.


First overall: Traded to Connecticut along with Montgomery for Whalen and the No. 2 overall pick. Montgomery played at UConn, and the Sun used the No. 1 pick for UConn's Tina Charles.

Second overall: Monica Wright, guard. Averaged 11 points as a rookie.

Third overall: Kelsey Griffin, forward. Traded to Connecticut for first-round (fourth overall) and second-round picks this year.
