Sorry, Lynx fans, Caitlin Clark isn't coming to Minnesota. But her on-court rival, Angel Reese, might be available when the team picks eighth in tonight's WNBA draft.

Why it matters: The Lynx haven't been back to the WNBA Finals since the Maya Moore dynasty ended in 2017.

  • Adding a second star alongside Napheesa Collier could get them back into contender status.

The intrigue: Polarizing LSU star Reese is an excellent defender and rebounder, but questions about her offensive game are why the Lynx could have a shot at her despite not holding a top-three pick.

Watch it: ESPN at 6:30pm.
