China News Network, March 28. The 2020 WNBA Draft will be held on April 17, local time. In the latest player draft pick forecast on the WNBA Draft website, Chinese female basketball players Chen Mingling and Li Yuan both made the list.
According to US media reports, although the 2020 WNBA Draft is still scheduled, it will be held on April 17. However, due to the spread of the new crown pneumonia epidemic in the United States, this WNBA draft will be conducted in an empty field. On that day, there will be no players, media and fans to watch the draft process.
It is worth mentioning that in the prediction of the WNBA draft website, two Chinese players were successfully selected. Inside player Chen Mingling was predicted to be in the 27th pick (third round draft) and selected by the Atlanta Dream Team; point guard Li Yuan was predicted to be in 34th pick (third round draft) and selected by the Los Angeles Sparks.
As representatives of the new generation of Chinese women's basketball players, Chen Mingling and Li Yuan are both post-00s players. If they successfully land in the WNBA, they will make history and become the first Chinese post-00 players selected by the WNBA. (Finish)
