2024 WNBA Draft Version 1.0

Caitlin Clark of the Iowa Hawkeyes.

Since releasing WNBA Draft Version 1.0, I’ve gotten to thinking about future WNBA Mock Drafts as well. I asked my Twitter followers via a Twitter poll and a large majority of my Twitter followers agreed. So, here it is! I’ve released the 2022 WNBA Mock Draft Version 1.0 two days ago and the 2023 WNBA Mock Draft Version 1.0 yesterday. I conclude this WNBA Mock Draft exercise with the 2024 WNBA Mock Draft.

Currently, the players who are going to be involved in the 2024 WNBA Draft are freshmen. They have just started playing college basketball and in a season unlike any other with many cancellations and postponements. Some teams have also stopped playing altogether. But, this freshmen class is very good. Loaded actually. There are some potentially franchise altering stars in this class.

Since these players are just freshmen, they will grow and get better over the next three years. Since it is the 2024 WNBA Mock Draft, I will update this draft next year, then in 2023 and then in 2024 when their draft will take place. We will see which players increased their stock or fell to the bottom.

I hope you have enjoyed all of these future WNBA Mock Drafts. They are designed to help think about the WNBA’s future and to see the potential in these young college basketball players.
