The Connecticut Sun received the third and fourth overall picks in 2015 during Thursday night’s WNBA Draft Lottery in Secaucus, N.J.
Connecticut had its first-round pick and the New York Liberty’s, which the Sun acquired in April as part of a package for All-Star center Tina Charles.
The Seattle Storm won the first overall pick, which will be held next April following the NCAA Final Four in Tampa, and the Tulsa Shock second. Both teams finished 12-22 and had a 35.9 percent chance of winning the lottery. The Sun (13-21) had a 28.2 percent chance.
It was the second straight year that Connecticut was in the lottery. The Sun won last year and picked Stanford post Chiney Ogwumike, who’s favored to win the 2014 Rookie of the Year honor.
UConn seniors Kaleena Mosqueda-Lewis and Kiah Stokes, Duke center Elizabeth Williams, California guard Brittany Boyd, Central Michigan guard Crystal Bradford, and Stanford guard Amber Orrange are among the top players.
