community news, 2020 WNBA draft: Live tracker, pick order, updates

The WNBA will hold its draft on Friday evening, a rare sporting event taking place during the coronavirus pandemic. 

This year’s draft looks different than usual due to its virtual format. Coaches and general managers are conducting the draft remotely and cannot gather in teams’ “war rooms” because of the virus. No players, guests or reporters will join commissioner Cathy Engelbert when she announces the picks, although drafted players will take part via video conference. 

The New York Liberty have the No. 1 overall pick, followed by the Dallas Wings at No. 2 and the Indiana Fever at No. 3. On Wednesday, the Liberty traded All-Star Tina Charles to the Washington Mystics in a three-team deal to receive the 12th draft pick from Washington and the ninth and 15th picks from Dallas.

You can watch the WNBA draft on ESPN or WatchESPN at 7 p.m. ET.
