As expected Connecticut senior Maya Moore went first in the 2011 WNBA draft held Monday, picked by the Minnesota Lynx. Elizabeth Cambage, a 19 year-old 6-8 center from Australia, was the second pick and is headed to the Tulsa Shock. Courtney Vandersloot, the dazzling point guard from Gongaza, was picked third by the Chicago Sky. Among the surprises, Danielle Adams, the post player from the national champion Texas A&M Aggies did not get picked until the second round, selected 20th by the San Antonio Silver Stars.

Trades conducted at the conclusion of the draft included:

  • New York traded Kalana Green to Connecticut for the draft rights of Sydney Colson (16th pick).
  • Phoenix traded draft rights of Tahnee Robinson (31st pick) to Connecticut for Connecticut’s third round pick in 2012.
  • Minnesota traded draft rights of Jessica Breland (13th pick) to New York for the draft rights of Angel Robinson (22nd pick) and New York’s own second round pick in 2012.
  • Minnesota traded the draft rights of Felicia Chester (14th pick) to Atlanta for draft rights to Rachel Jarry (18th pick) and the Dream’s 2012 2nd round pick.
  • Washington Mystics traded Lindsey Harding and a 2012 second round draft pick to the Atlanta Dream in exchange for Ta’Shia Phillips (8th pick), Kelly Miller and a 2012 first round draft pick
