The Lynx are going to be stacked this year and they will be able to add two additional quality players to their roster. Can we get Roger Griffith and Cheryl Reeve to run the Wolves? Pretty please?
Tina Charles will probably be the first player off the board and this will leave the Lynx with their choice between Virginia guard Monica Wright (the best perimeter player in the draft), Stanford big Jayne Appel, and former Rutgers player
For those of you unfamiliar with the WNBA, landing Wright and Appel is the rough equivalent of getting Evan Turner and Derrick Favors in the NBA Draft. Keep in mind that these young players are being added to a roster with multiple All Stars and an Olympian. Yes, that does kick ass.
