The 2024 WNBA draft is in the books, and the new faces of the league now know where they are heading.

The Indiana Fever won the lottery and held the first pick, which they used to draft Caitlin Clark. The Iowa star wrapped up her legendary college career by competing in the national championship game after a historic season. She averaged 31.6 points, 7.4 rebounds and 8.9 assists per game and seems ready to shine in the WNBA.

While Clark was the obvious choice at No. 1, the rest of the lottery could have gone a number of ways. The Los Angeles Sparks had two picks in the top five thanks to a trade with the Seattle Storm. The Sparks used the No. 2 pick on Stanford star Cameron Brink, who put up 17.4 points and 11.9 rebounds per game.

South Carolina's Kamilla Cardoso is having quite the month, as she led the Gameco*cks to a national championship and is now a WNBA player after being selected third overall by the Chicago Sky.

LSU star Angel Reese saw her numbers dip some in 2023 as she averaged 18.6 points and 13.4 rebounds per game, but she still managed to go inside the top 10.

This article will be updated with the latest picks and analysis throughout the WNBA draft.

Draft order via WNBA.com.

In a move that has been months in the making, the Fever selected Clark first overall. She has been the clear candidate to be drafted No. 1 since she announced she would declare for the WNBA, and now it's official.

Clark joins an Indiana team that struggled last year, going 13-27, but is trending upward with some young talent. The Fever had the first overall pick last year, which they used to take eventual Rookie of the Year Aliyah Boston. Now with Clark and Kelsey Mitchell in the backcourt and Boston and NaLyssa Smith in the frontcourt, Indiana should see some improvement.

Caitlin Clark and Kelsey Mitchell is an electric backcourt

It's safe to say the future is bright for the Fever.

After going 17-23 in 2023, the Sparks are hoping Brink can make an impact in her rookie season. They lost forward Nneka Ogwumike to the Seattle Storm over the offseason and are looking for someone to replace her production. Brink certainly has what it takes to do that.

Adding Tennessee star Rickea Jackson with the No. 4 pick gives Los Angeles a dynamic duo to rebuild around.

sparks got rickea jackson and cameron brink so far they're kindaaaaaa cleanin house ngl

Zac (zac-cleary.bsky.social) @zac_cleary

Rickea Jackson and Cameron Brink is an absolute haul

The Sky got a huge addition in Cardoso. The Gameco*cks star was dominant on both ends of the floor last season and is now looking to make an impact in the WNBA. She proved she has what it takes to win, and she's looking to do it again in Chicago.

The Chicago Sky select Kamilla Cardoso with the No. 3 overall pick. <br><br>Really like this for the Sky as they rebuild.

Jemele Hill @jemelehill

T Spoon + Kamilla Cardoso … this is such a great pick for Chicago. Tremendous fit.

The Sky are a few years removed from their WNBA championship, but now they have a new potential star to build around with Cardoso.

Some WNBA fans were surprised to see Reese fall out of the top five, but Sky fans are excited to have her on the roster. With Reese alongside Cardoso, Chicago's frontcourt has the potential to be one of the best in the league.

Mike Dub! @BottleMan__

Oh man that Chicago frontcourt. Congrats to Angel Reese. <a href="https://twitter.com/hashtag/WNBADraft?src=hash&amp;ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw">#WNBADraft</a>

For Reese, falling to No. 7 could serve as motivation for her during her rookie season.
