The WNBA announced today that the 2014 Draft will be held at the Mohegan Sun Casino in Uncasville, Connecticut on Monday, April 14.
The Connecticut Sun, which plays in the Mohegan Sun’s arena will have the first pick in the Draft. Coincidentally, whoever gets drafted at the number one spot will already be at her new home which is kind of cool.
The Mohegan Sun Casino has hosted a number of WNBA events in the past, including the All-Star Games in 2005, 2009, and 2013, as well as the 2010 WNBA vs. USA Basketball match which featured the Team USA FIBA World Championship team playing against a team of WNBA star players.
The first round of the WNBA Draft will be televised at 8 p.m. on ESPN2. The second and third rounds will be televised on ESPNU.
