The Dallas Wings made some seriously impressive selections in the 2020 WNBA Draft
2. Satou Sabally
This delightful pick came as no surprise. The Wings used their No. 2 pick on the second-best player in this draft. Sabally is the ideal addition for Dallas’ backcourt. She is a stretch four who is great both off the dribble and driving to the basket. The combination Sabally and Arike paints a very happy picture. As Sue Bird put it, “she’s going to be a matchup problem for years to come.”
5. Bella Alarie
“Bella Buckets.” The Ivy league is coming to Dallas. The Wings landed Bella Alarie who, like Sabally, is a versatile post player who can shoot. She averaged 17.5 points and 8.6 rebounds this season for the 26-1 Princeton Tigers. As a 6-foot-4 forward, Alarie is mobile and can score from just about anywhere on the court. She joins her father, Mark Alarie, as a first-round pick.
7. Tyasha Harris
Ty Harris is reunited with former national championship South Carolina teammates Allisha Gray and Kaela Davis. It was obvious the Wings had to address their guard needs in this draft and the fact that Harris was still available so late was a huge score for Dallas. “She’s one of the best floor generals coming out of college basketball, one of the best ball distributors,” Wings president Greg Bibb said.

Overall the Wings nailed the first round of this draft. They addressed their needs while picking up players they wanted and needed. Kudos to the Wings staff for playing it smart.
