Los Angeles wins WNBA Draft lottery

The Los Angeles Sparks will have the No. 1 overall pick after winning the WNBA draft lottery on Thursday.

The Sparks had just 104 out of 1000 chances to win the lottery which was weighted by the record of the four non-playoff teams. Tulsa had the worst record (3-31) and had a 44.2 percent of earning the No. 1 pick but ended up falling to fourth. After Los Angeles will come Chicago and Minnesota (which acquired Washington's pick by trading Nicky Anosike to the Mystics) and Tulsa. Connecticut will have the ninth pick in the draft.

Stanford's Nneka Ogwumike is the leading candidate to be the top pick and she could be a good fit with Los Angeles since Delisha Milton-Jones and Tina Thompson are 37 and 36 years old respectively.

No one will think the draft lottery was fixed so the LA Sparks could draft Nmeka Ogwumike in April 2012.

No one will think Tulsa would tank their 2012 season so they would be in the lottery for Brittney Griner in April 2013.
