The 2018 WNBA Draft will be held on Thursday, April 12 at Nike New York Headquarters. ESPN2 will air the first round beginning at 7 p.m. ET, followed by coverage of rounds two and three on ESPNU at 8 p.m. ET.

Holding the draft at Nike is part of the league’s “newly expanded partnership” with the brand according to WNBA president Lisa Borders.

Several top draft prospects and invited guests will be at the draft. According to the league, “they will be immersed in an interactive, experiential atmosphere. The 150,000-square-foot venue, which opened last June, features a 4,000-square-foot indoor basketball court that will serve as the broadcast hub for the draft. The event is not open to the public.”
