Epps (KY), as much hype as she received, went 33rd out of 36 players drafted. She was that close to going undrafted.........

Personally I think she got shafted, but better to be drafted than to not. She'll get a chance to prove herself to make a roster.

Personally I doubt she does much in the WNBA. I think they realized that she just doesn't have the size or ability to go against a team full of elite athletes.

Time will tell.

I agree, but the same could be said of some of the talent selected before her. But again she's has a chance which is all that matter.

This is a great night to be a Gamecock. I think Epps will likely make a roster. I don't care for her, but she's a good player.

Default Re: WNBA Draft

Does anyone else sense that Coates has a reasonable chance to get traded to Dallas? Based on the unexpected pick of Akhator being selected 3rd it seems as if they were anticipating picking Alaina but got derailed at the last second. If it happens they might lose either Gray or Davis in the process.

I believe it's around 70k on average but the real money comes with playing overseas in the off-season to supplement.

Would you say;
"She LIMPED in to this draft"? If so, that would mirror her playing career.

So what is the most impressive thing about last night?
  • We had three players in the Top Ten, including #2 and #4.
  • Our #10 pick was actually projected higher - we could have 3 in the Top 6-8 players chosen.
  • We will still be one of the best teams in the country without them.
  • None of those three were our best player.

Love me some Ladies!

All of the above! I still wish Gray and Davis had used up all of their eligibility and wanted to play for another national championship, but both being drafted in the top 10, I can't argue with their decision. I wish them well, and thank them for a Championship.

Regarding player salaries, I think I had read somewhere that the average first year salary for WNBA players was around $40K, but obviously, the real money is in playing internationally.
