Tonight's WNBA draft will determine where collegiate stars like LSU forward Angel Reese and Iowa guard Caitlin Clark land in their first seasons as pros.

Why this matters: While they've been celebrated at the college level, it's unclear how Clark and Reese will perform in the WNBA.

Between the lines: The current college landscape is packed with young generational talent β€” like the freshmen that led Dawn Staley's squad to the national championship β€” but only those at least 22 years old can be drafted.

Zoom in: ESPN will broadcast the draft from Brooklyn Academy of Music in New York at 6:30pm CT. Fans can stream it on ESPN+ or fuboTV.
