WITH THE SIXTH PICK ...
The Lynx have the No. 6 pick in Wednesday’s WNBA draft. Here are five players who could be available when the Lynx choose:
• Notre Dame guard Arike Ogunbowale. Notre Dame’s on-court leader is a confident, big-moment player who can both shoot and distribute;
• Connecticut forward Napheesa Collier. The 6-2Collier’s stock has risen as she led the Huskies in the NCAA tournament. Perhaps the closest thing to a sure-thing in this draft, she is a great, versatile defender;
• Stanford forward Alanna Smith. She can flat-out shoot, a stretch-four who made nearly 40 percent of her three-point shots this season;
• Connecticut guard/forward Katie Lou Samuelson. At 6-3, Samuelson has perimeter versatility and she can shoot.
• Cal forward Kristine Anigwe. A 6-4 forward who is a great rebounder and good at finishing around the basket.
